However, the ex-Coronation Street actress said that she hopes buying a pet dog will put a stop to her current mood.
"I'd like a dog to stop me getting broody," she told The Sun. "I'll probably get a little baby dog. I'd like a Chihuahua."
Flanagan announced her Corrie departure last October, with her final scenes playing out in February.
Of her future plans, she added: "I'm only 21, I even thought of maybe going back to university. I just want to live for the moment really."
Flanagan has been dating Swansea City footballer Sinclair since January.
