The star was so hurt by her first boyfriend she reveals she has major trust issues when it comes to men.

She revealed: “When I was 18 my first boyfriend cheated on me, it was horrible. I have severe trust issues which means I don’t do the dating thing any more.”

“I went on a date a few months ago and realised that I can’t do a relationship. I’m scared of getting hurt. I don’t think I’ve ever been in love and I don’t know what it feels like.”

Alexandra is still holding out for a man though, and is going to let him find her.

“I want someone who I can trust, who makes me smile and who stands on their own two feet,” she explained. “I’m not looking for love because when you look you don’t find it. I’m sitting back and hoping it finds its way to me.”
