Susan Boyle is looking for love.

The 51-year-old singer - who shot to fame after competing on UK TV show 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009 - wants to find a ''special someone'' to share her life with but insists she wouldn't be too upset if she remains single.

She said: ''Of course I'd like that special someone in my life, but I'm not going to let a man define me.

''I've done pretty well over the past 51 years without one but it would be nice.''

However, the 'I Dreamed A Dream' hitmaker - who hails from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland - won't be turning to online dating to find a man because she is terrified of the risks.

She added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Internet dating? Are you having a laugh? Knowing my luck I'd go out on a date and you'd find my limbs scattered around various Blackburn dustbins!

''I believe in letting things happen naturally and not shopping for a man on the internet.

''If my soulmate is out there then I will find him but it won't be on a computer.''
