Peter Kraus is spicing up his dating life

Who here withdrew their application for The Bachelor when they learned Peter Kraus didn't get the leading-man spot for Season 22 (*author slowly raises hand*)? What if I told you you could connect with Kraus without having to set foot in a mansion or a ball gown? That fantasy is officially a reality, my friends.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kraus promoted his new social networking app, Hive Social, by inviting users to download it and track him down. Hive Social isn't a dating app, per se, but Kraus made it sound like that wouldn't stop him from pursuing something if he were to meet a special someone on it.

"It's a really nice way to meet people who have a common interest, and make new friends," he said. "Right now, I'm trying to talk to as many fans and people as possible, so if [anyone] really wants to get to know me [...] in a very intimate way, get onto this app where you can actually talk to me face to face."

And even though he's hard at work building the app, Kraus is definitely still keeping an eye out for his shot at love.

"I've started to date, but I'm not dating someone," he explained. "I can't wait to have a family and kids. [It's different now because I have to consider] what I want to do on a date, staying out of the public eye, and just seeing what people are there for, if they're there for me or for a different reason."
