The Stronger singer split from film and TV producer boss Charlie Ebersol last year (15), and while she is happy being single, she has a friend who keeps trying to play matchmaker by setting her up with dates.

Although a couple of dates went well, she admits the majority of the time they're "too awkward" or "too much", especially one time when she was shocked by a man's lizard-like appearance and had to make a sharp exit as soon as possible.

"The dating thing and meeting other people, it’s hard. Tricky," she tells U.K. host Jonathan Ross. "I will say there’s been two dates that have been kind of cool but other than that it’s just too much. I went out with this one guy and he looked like a lizard. I was so scared. As soon as I turned around I was like, ‘Oh My God’... he looks just like a lizard and I had to go, it was really bad.”

When asked by Jonathan if she just left, she nods and adds, “immediately" and admits she was so mad, she gave the friend who set her up an angry phone call, but her pal insisted the man didn't look like a lizard in his pictures.

Although she's not looking for a man and is "really happy with herself" right now, Britney says her ideal man would be "nice", a trait she consider rare in current society.

"A lot of men are about games," she explains. "It’s just the mind game with guys, the calling back and the texting, it’s just too much, it’s silly."

Britney's interview airs in the U.K. on Saturday (01Oct16).
