1282314637-12Alexandra Burke “can’t do” relationships.  The ‘Bad Boys’ singer – who has been linked to a string of famous men including members of boy band JLS and singer Peter Andre – admits she finds it difficult to trust men after a bad experience in a teenage romance.

She said: “When I was 18 my first boyfriend cheated on me. It was horrible.

“I have severe trust issues which mean I don’t do the dating thing anymore. I went on a date a few months ago and realised that I can’t do a relationship. I’m scared of getting hurt.”

The 21-year-old star doesn’t believe she has ever been in love, but thinks she will know when she does meet her ‘Mr. Right’.

She explained: “I don’t think I’ve ever been in love and I don’t know what it feels like. My sister says you don’t know that it just happens.”

Despite her fear of getting hurt again, Alexandra is looking for a man and knows exactly what type of man she is looking for.

She said: “I want someone who I can trust, who makes me smile and who stands on their own two feet. I’m not looking for love because when you look you don’t find it. I’m sitting back and hoping it finds its way to me.”
