Pirates Of The Caribbean star Orlando Bloom has admitted the dating game is not his strong point and he has struggled to find the right woman.

The 30-year-old actor claimed that, following his split from girlfriend of four years Kate Bosworth, he has hit a brick wall in the dating business.

He told the Mirror: "I find the whole dating thing very hard actually. Well, dating the girl I feel 'right' with, I mean.

"But I am a romantic and I like the idea of being in love, of thinking about that person all day long."

And the actor, who made his name in the Lord Of The Rings and Pirates trilogies, added that babies are next on his mind, once he finds the right girl.

"I'd like to start a family one day and live more of a real existence, instead of being all over the place," he said.

Orlando also admitted that while he enjoyed making The Pirates movies, after five years he felt it was time to move on.

"Growing up with such a high profile movie has been both a blessing and a curse in a way because it has been quite challenging," he said.

"But I'm looking forward to doing something completely different now."
