To say Emily Maynard has been unlucky in love would be a huge understatement. Her most recent split with Jef Holm marks the end of her third engagement — the first of which ended in tragedy when Ricky Hendricks died in a plane crash in 2004. Emily’s second engagement with Season 15 Bachelor Brad Womack ended in 2011.

It sounds like, at least for now, Emily is putting her search for love on hold, enjoying being single, and shutting down any and all rumors that she’s dating NASCAR driver Jason White.  And good for her — it’s important to invest in yourself, especially after a hard breakup.

However, after watching her quests for love on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, we’d be lying if we didn’t say we’d love to see Emily find a partner she can share her life with: someone who will be a loving husband and a good father.

What do you think: should Emily get back out there and date again or stay single?
