Despite a very emotional (and public) break-up with ‘Bachelorette’ Emily Maynard, Arie says his heart has healed and he’s ready to date again! Read on for more details.

Get in line, ladies!

While it’s sad that skater boy Jef Holm is officially off the market, sexy race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. is single and definitely ready to mingle.

After his televised break-up with Bachelorette Emily Maynard, Arie tells HollywoodLife.com that he’s ready to get back in the game.

“I’m open and ready to start dating. You never know,” he tell us. “Whenever it comes to dating it’s best when it just happens, when it’s organic and by chance.”

Oh la la! Sounds like he’s definitely ready to fall in love again — he just needs to meet the right woman. Arizona women, you are definitely at an advantage here.

And don’t worry — there’s nothing going on with his ex-girlfriend, Sonia Rockwell, who he was spotted meeting up with in L.A. recently.

“I’m still really good friends with Sonia. I was in L.A. and we met for coffee and she’s always been a friend of mine,” he tells us.
