Chelsea Handler has written books about her numerous romantic conquests, but the 36-year-old comedienne says she's not in a rush to rebound from her recent split with hotelier Andre Balazs.

"I'm in a happy time in my life," she said on Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday. "I'm not on the prowl. I've never been on the prowl. I do like men, though."

The bestselling author and host of the E! network's Chelsea Lately said she's looking for a man who can keep her on her toes.

"I like to be challenged. I like men who have something going on. I like men who are successful, who aren't very dependent on you," Handler explained. "I like for them to bring something to the table that you haven't brought to the table yourself. And I like them in small doses."

The New Jersey native — who's dated 50 Cent, Ted Harbert and Dave Salmoni in the past — added that "all my exes are very fond of me."

"They should all get together and start a club," she quipped.

All kidding aside, Handler admitted that she's recently become more open to the idea of marriage.

"Walking down an aisle in a white dress, no, I don't dream wistfully about it," she laughed. "I've considered marriage at different times in my life, but I've never come close to marriage. No one's ever proposed to me."
