Susan Boyle has achieved more than most people do in only a few short years and now the singer wants to continue following the trajectory of her rise to the top by heading out on her first ever solo tour. The Britain's Got Talent runner-up will perform at a handful of venues around her native Scotland, and while she's on the road the singer has made no secret of the fact that she will be on the prowl for any potential suitors.

The songbird was speaking with the Scottish Sun to promote her tour when the subject of her love life was brought up.

"I want to find a man but it’s hard with all the travelling I do," she told the newspaper. "I really want to start going on dates and I’ve asked my friends to set me up with a good man — if they can find one. I’d like to settle down one day."

It may be pre-planned, but the singer already has a kiss lined up for her when she films scenes for her upcoming movie debut, The Christmas Candle, in which she shares an on-screen smooch with her co-star James Cosmo. As much as she is enjoying the scene, what Susan really wants though is a man to settle down with and share more than just the occasional kiss with.

Before that can happen, she sill need to complete her run of Scotland and, providing it goes well and she copes with the demands of touring, then a world-wide tour may very well be on the cards - and she might just find the man she's been waiting for when she goes out on such a large tour.

As well as her tour, movie role and search for a man to have by her side, SuBo still has plans up her sleeve for the near-future, including a residency at a Las Vegas resort. When her eight-date tour of Scotland was announced, the singer also revealed that she is being courted by several Vegas resorts all keen on having the Blackburn, West Lothian-native play for an extended run in Sin City. Her tour of Scotland begins on July 4 at Aberdeen Music Hall, but act fast if you want to go because the tickets have almost all sold-out already.
