Luann de Lesseps is moving on with someone new following her split from ex-boyfriend Garth Wakeford.

During an appearance on this week's episode of Access Hollywood's Housewives Nightcap, the Real Housewives of New York City star opened up about her romantic life after calling it quits with the personal trainer earlier this year.

"I am dating. Garth and I had a great relationship during COVID. It was a COVID sizzle and then it fizzled — and that's okay," de Lesseps, 55, said. "We've moved on and I'm dating. I met somebody in Mexico, so I'm seeing him once in a while. But I'm single and always a hopeless romantic. Never say never."

But the reality star stressed that she's taking things one day at a time with her new man, saying, "it's very new."

De Lesseps was previously married to Alexandre de Lesseps from 1993 to 2009 and Tom D'Agostino Jr. from 2016 to 2017.

Speaking to PEOPLE exclusively in April, de Lesseps said that she isn't ruling out the possibility of getting married again.

"I have been there, done that, but you never say never, right?" she said at the time. "I am a hopeless romantic. I've been married twice and like they say, three times the charm. So, you never know."

She added, "I'm not opposed to it and I'm not looking for it. I feel like when you're not looking, that's when things happen."
