Sometimes snookin' for love doesn't always pan out -- just ask the woman who coined the phrase!

In a radio interview with SiriusXM's Morning Mash Up, Snooki, 23, admitted her failed hookup with Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino is one of her biggest regrets.

"I kind of wish me and Vinny didn't try and have sex because it was just drama this whole season," she explained on Monday. "And I don't know, it was just awkward between us and then I felt's just embarrassing."

Arguing that friends with benefits never works, the self-proclaimed "Princess Of Poughkeepsie" said she's sure Guadagnino, 23, feels the same.

"I kind of got feelings [for him]," she said. "But for him, he'd be like, 'No, it's another girl.'"

Hookup preferences aside, Snooki (real name: Nicole Polizzi) already has an idea of the kind of guy she wants to settle down with.

"I want someone who's goal-oriented, definitely not a cheater," she mused.

As for when she'll tie the knot -- possibly with Jionni LaValle, her beau of nearly three months?

"I think 28 is a good age to get married," she said. "I just don't want to be an old fart when my kid's like 18. I want to be that cool mom."
