Teen popstar Hilary Duff finds the search for love frustrating - as most men are too scared by her fiery reputation to approach her.

The WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OFF singer - whose last boyfriend was teen hunk AARON CARTER - would never consider making the first move herself, but often finds this leaves her without any romantic interest at all.

She laments, "I'm shy when it comes to that - I would never approach a guy or anything like that.

"I think it's their job. But sometimes I think people are intimidated because they think I'll be mean or rude or something, but I'm not."
