Mischa Barton says she enjoys dating moody men.
The former The O.C. star confessed that she likes potential suitors to have a "dark side", but they should have a geeky side too.
And she is happy for a partner who occasionally sulks - because she is also prone to suffering "huge lows", reports Contactmusic.
Barton tells Hello! magazine, "I tend to be attracted to slightly dark men, meaning they have huge lows, which I can too.
This is not conducive to being happy and carefree... I have therefore set my mind to dating if I feel like it, but not getting into anything serious. It's difficult to find the happy medium. I am dating in a general sense... nothing exclusive. I am enjoying myself.
"I seem to be drawn to dark-sided men. I love them to be super-intelligent rather than Greek gods."
Barton is reportedly single. She split from Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard in March (09).
