Florence Henderson is aging in enviable style. After competing on "Dancing with the Stars" at the prime age of 76, the former "Brady Bunch" star now opens up to Closer Weekly magazine to reveal that her dating life is just as active as ever.

"I have a website and I get a lot of offers from guys in their 40s who'd love to date me," Henderson tells Closer, adding that her ideal man would be "someone who laughs a lot, has fun and wants to enjoy going out and dancing!"

But this isn't the first time Henderson has discussed her personal life in such a public way.

In a 2011 interview with Fox News about her autobiography, "Life Is Not a Stage," Henderson addressed getting hit on by guys who grew up watching her on the iconic show. "I got [a message] the other day from a young man who said, 'Hi, I'm 35 years old. I'm so in love with you. I think you're so hot. I don't know if you would consider dating me,'" she said. "I get so much of that."

When asked if she would consider dating said 35-year-old, Henderson replied: "You know I never say never. Life is funny. I do date. I have dated younger men, not that young. I don't want to have to change diapers."

Last year, Barry Williams -- who played her son Greg for the series' five seasons -- told Oprah he has a huge crush on his TV mom. "I always had -- I still do -- have a great attraction to her," he said. "I like her very much, and I'm catching up!" In his 1992 autobiography, he revealed they spent an evening together, though Henderson later said the so-called "date" was "blown way out of proportion."
