Eva Longoria say she's better at doling out dating advice (and producing a reality show about it) than actually dating.

"I'm the worst dater ever," Eva told AccessHollywood.com's Laura Saltman at NBCUniversal's summer press day on Wednesday, where she appeared to promote her upcoming reality dating show, "Ready For Love."

"That's why I like to be behind the scenes. I like to tell people what to do," she explained. "I'm pretty opinionated."

The upcoming series - coming to NBC this winter with hosts Giuliana and Bill Rancic - will use Facebook and a team of skilled matchmakers to match women with three men who are committed to finding the right match to share their lives with.

"Our matchmakers are really important in this process," the actress said. "They have this 85 percent matchmaking rate. I've never had any interaction with matchmakers or knew anything about them until this show. And they have pretty specific philosophies that you go, 'Wow, I never thought of it that way.'"

And what does Eva think it takes to be ready and open to finding love?

"When you get to a point in your life and you've tried everything and you've exhausted blind dates you kind of go, 'I really want to share this life with somebody,'" she told Access. "That's one thing I think these guys are, they're ready for love and they're at a point in their life where they're ready to share that with someone."

But is Eva - who split with Eduardo Cruz last month - ready to find her own new love?

"Who knows," she added with a laugh.
