The former T4 presenter recently finished a two-year romance after moving to the US to further her career.
She told You: "He was the most amazing guy, but we realised that the transatlantic thing doesn't work.
"I really don't want to do another two or three-year relationship, and then have to mourn the end of it. It's tiring and it takes a lot out of you."
Sarpong, 31, said that although she just "[went] with the flow" in her 20s, she is now ready to settle down.
"For me, the next one has to be The One, and I'm going to take my time to find him," she said.
