Sofia Vergara may be dating again, but she’s doing it the old-fashioned way!

Six months since her split from ex Joe Manganiello, the Griselda star (who loves nothing more than “eating, shopping and talking s---”)  is opening herself up to fun, she revealed in a new interview with The Daily Mail.

When asked if she has hit the dating apps since her breakup, which PEOPLE confirmed last July, Vergara, 51, told the outlet, “No, I wish!”

“I’m bad with technology, so I’m sure I would click on the wrong ones. I’m open to having fun and meeting people,” she continued, adding, “It’s only been six months.”

“It’s weird, because I’ve now lived longer in the United States than I lived in my country [Colombia]. But I’m still very Latin. I work out to Latin music. In my car, it’s Latin music. My friends — my close friends — are either my cousins or the ones I met at kindergarten," Vergara then told the outlet.

“So now I need a husband!” she added, before clarifying: “No, I don’t need a husband, I want one.”

“It doesn’t even have to be a husband. A partner,” she continued.

In her Daily Mail interview, the Modern Family alum also spoke more in detail about her and Manganiello’s split, further confirming that they weren't on the same page when it came to expanding their family.

“Joe was four years younger than me, and he’d never had kids,” she said of the Magic Mike star, 47.

Vergara, who shares son Manolo, 32, with ex-husband Joe Gonzalez, continued: “He decided he wanted kids and I didn’t want them. It was like: ‘Imagine, when this child would be 10 years old, I’ll be 60-something. That’s a grandma!’ ”

“I know the sacrifices you need to make to be a good mother. You have to be present. And my career is important to me. I cannot disappear. A lot of people rely on me,” she continued.

But, becoming a grandmother is a different story, Vergara told the outlet. “I’m 51, my son is 32. I’m ready to play with my grandson and then when I’m done it’s: ‘Okay, take it. It’s yours!’” she said.

Vergara and Manganiello announced news of their split last year, saying they made the “difficult decision” to divorce after seven years of marriage.

"As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect for our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives,” they wrote in a joint statement at the time.

Shortly after, Manganiello filed for divorce, listing the date of separation as July 2, and citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the dissolution of the marriage, per documents obtained by PEOPLE.

In the months since their split, the actor has been dating actress Caitlin O'Connor, while Vergara has been photographed on several dates with Justin Saliman, an orthopedic surgeon.
