Controversial pop star Boy George is desperate to find a long-term lover - because he's tired of fleeting romantic liaisons.

The Karma Chameleon hitmaker's last serious relationship ended two years ago (03) and ever since, he's been searching for his soulmate.

He says, "I fall in love at the drop of a hat, I'm romantic.

"I am very optimistic that I will settle down with someone, although these days there is so much emphasis on the superficial.

"Lasting relationships are so much harder to find."
