"Right now, I am under no pressure to find a guy. I'm figuring it out on my own," the 27-year-old former eighth-season The Bachelorette star told the Huffington Post in a recent interview.
Maynard, who has gotten engaged three times but never been married, said the guy she ends up with will undoubtedly fit right into her life with Ricki, her eight-year-old daughter with late fiance and former NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick.
"But I will say this: When I do find him, this man will be the best, because he'll be someone who adds something pretty spectacular to our lives," she explained.
Maynard admitted, however, dating is actually a difficult task as a single mother.
"At the end of a long day to get dressed, go out and make small talk is an effort," the former fifteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette told the website.
While parenting and dating can be a hard combination to take on, Maynard said she feels it's possible to have everything.
"For sure we can have it all. Being a single mom definitely makes it harder. But I believe if you want anything bad enough, you make it work. It takes a strong support system. My mom and Ricki's paternal grandma are the angels in my life. I have a great group of friends, a lot of them are the moms of Ricki's friends. I also have my faith to guide me and I don't sweat the small stuff," she told the Post.
Us Weekly reported in June that Maynard had been dating a guy named Nick, whom she "met in church," for about six months.
The pair reportedly reunited and decided to give their relationship another shot in December 2012 but things fell apart again later that month. A source told Us at the time Holm ultimately "crushed her."
Maynard's engagement to former The Bachelor star Brad Womackended in 2011 with Womack admitting he had "dodged a bullet." The couple began encountering problems shortly following ABC's March 2011 broadcast of the show's season finale.
Prior to her stint on reality TV, Maynard had been engaged to Hendrick, who died in a plane crash in 2004 when she was pregnant with their daughter.
