Eccentric British singer Paloma Faith is struggling to find a boyfriend because she is rarely approached by potential suitors.
The pop star, who is famed for her quirky outfits and stage persona, wants to settle down and start a family in the coming years, but is worried men don't realise she is available.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I'm single for the first time since the age of about 14. No one ever chats me up; I think they all think I'm taken. Either that or no one fancies me. I don't get hit on by anyone, ever. That's the truth. No one ever approaches me, famous or otherwise.
"I'm not seeing anyone but am open to offers... I'm on the lookout. I like someone with a really good and dark sense of humour, who doesn't take themselves too seriously and preferably non-European.
"My mum's always on at me to have children and blames 'that stupid stage thing you do' for me not already having a family. In five years' time, I'd like to have a small brood of babies."
