Kylie Minogue hasn't given up on finding the right man.

The 'Into The Blue' singer, who split from Spanish model Andres Velencoso in October after five years together, admits juggling her career and love life has never been easy but she still has faith she will settle down eventually.

She said: ''I don't know if I can blame work because when I meet someone it's not like I suddenly get a new job. Whoever I fall in love with or falls in love with me has to be strong to deal with my life. I don't think it's an east place to be. But I haven't given up on finding the right man. I have to believe in the merit of true love.''

The 45-year-old star, who has also dated stars including Olivier Martinez and the late Michael Hutchence, feels there was nothing more she could have done to save her past relationships, and though none of them have worked out, she still thinks she's been ''lucky'' in love.

She continued to Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''It's about two people meeting who are on the same path in their own lives. We are on our rail tracks and at some time in a certain point in your life you meet. I know people write about me being unlucky in love but I think I've been quite lucky.

''I've had some nice men in my life - OK, some that maybe I should have come to my senses a little sooner than I did - but it's all about learning, nothing is handed to us on a plate.''
