Pamela Anderson dates for her sons.

The former 'Baywatch' beauty has two boys, Brandon, 15, and 13-year-old Dylan, with ex-husband Tommy Lee and admits being a single mother limits the type of man she can go out with.

She said: "My sons influence who I date but maybe as they get older my attitude towards men may change. It's just when you're a single mum, unfortunately I think we date for our kids. You think, 'Who are my kids going to want to hang out with?' Rather than who you want."

The 44-year-old star - who has also been married to Kid Rock and Rick Salomon - says she's single at the moment but is confident she will eventually meet the right man.

She told Britain's OK! magazine: "I am single. I like someone with a bit of an edge. Someone who's passionate about what they do. But I guess I haven't found that magical combination of everything yet. Someday I'll find someone."
