Teri Hatcher wants her friends to set her up with a man.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star is currently single and admits it's hard work trying to find love and is relying on a matchmaker.

She is quoted by website Absolute Now as saying: "It's tough to find the right one. I think you have to be set up. You have to know someone who knows someone. Maybe like a blind date but even that hasn't gone so well for me. I would love to eventually be in a lifetime relationship. It will happen."

While she is on the look-out for a man, Teri is busy launching a website for women.

The 45-year-old beauty has teamed up with Disney to work on a new online forum to create a place solely for females to allow them to chat and have "intimate conversations" with her about the problems they face in their lives.

Talking about GetHatched.com, she explained: "I just want to create a go-to respite for women where they can find a shoulder to lean on. I hope what you get from it is a sense of honesty, candidness and the understanding that wacky things happen to all of us. I love to get at problems through humour.

"I want to carry on an intimate conversation with people. There will be no audience, no publicists. This is not about promoting your next movie. It's about having natural conversations."
