Boy George - Boy George struggles with online dating

Boy George finds it difficult to meet ''worthwhile'' lovers on dating websites.

The 'Coming Home' hitmaker - whose real name is George Alan O'Dowd - used Grindr, which is a networking application geared towards gay, bisexual, and bi-curious men, but finds his fame makes finding someone tough.

He told The Sunday Times Magazine: ''Of course I have been on Grindr! That's like asking have I ever been on Facebook. But you're not going to meet anyone worthwhile on those sites.

''What happens to me on those things is 'Oh, are you Boy George?' Those kind of options aren't open to me.''

The star - who previously had relationships with punk rock singer Kirk Brandon and Culture Club drummer Jon Moss - insists he is a romantic at heart and would like to have a serious relationship but has been busy working on his new album 'This Is What I Do', which is released October 28.

He admitted: ''To a certain degree I prefer red roses and soft cotton sheets. It's just at the moment I'm not making any room for it.''
