Lauren Conrad: Bad at Dating, But Happy With Life

by at . Comments

After a summer split with Jason Wahler and a brief relationship with Brody Jenner, Lauren Conrad says she's unattached. And happy about that.

Conrad, 20, hosted a barbecue for Maci, a 13-year-old girl with autoimmune hepatitis who'd flown to California from Port Saint Lucie, Fl., via the Make-a-Wish Foundation to meet the star at her parents' Laguna Beach home.

In an interview with People, Lauren Conrad confided that she's bad at dating.

"You know, I haven't really liked anyone since Jason," she said. "I'm a bad dater. I'm the most socially awkward person, like carrying on conversations and stuff... I don't want to date anyone right now anyway, so it doesn't really matter."

She and Brody Jenner were never serious, she said.

"He's a cool guy. We hung out a couple of times. But I went into it telling him â€" I was like, 'I don't want to date you,'" Conrad said. "Oh, he doesn't want a girlfriend either!"

More difficult, Conrad said, was her split with Wahler, which sources have attributed in part to Wahler's lack of brains asshole behavior heavy partying.

"Obviously, when you care about someone, you don't want to see them going down that (self-destructive) road. You want to care about them, you want to help them, but then you have to realize it's not your responsibility. So it's easier for me to step back and not know about and not hear about it."

Thankfully, it's not all about boyfriend drama for the star of The Hills. Besides the barbecue, Conrad took Maci for some impromptu boutique shopping in Laguna.

Maci said Laguna Beach was her favorite show.

"I liked Lauren the best, so I picked her," she said.

Maci said it was nerve-racking to meet the arch enemy of Kristin Cavallari, but that she was quickly made to feel at home by Lauren.

No word on whether Breanna Conrad was there.

"I asked her about her and Jason and she told me everything," Maci said. "I wasn't sure what she was going to be like, but she's real nice."

Conrad said she was just as thrilled about the visit.

"This is the most amazing thing to be able to do."
