Sadie Frost has learned not to be "impulsive".
The 46-year-old actress - who has been married twice, to Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp and actor Jude Law - has curbed the desire to react to a situation quickly because she has concluded it is best to see "the bigger picture".
She said "What have I learned about love? Not to be impulsive. I think that sometimes you make decisions in the now and don't realise the effect they're going to have on your whole life.
"When it comes to relationships, it's much better to see the big picture."
However, Sadie - who has four children from her marriages - continues to be single, something she is not pleased with as she misses the intimacy that comes from being in a relationship.
She added: "I'd love to be in a relationship. Someone to cook me breakfast and tickle my toes.
"That's what I miss; the little things. I feel I am in such a good place. I should be sharing this with someone."
