'Don't Google me if you want a date', says single model Nadia Forde
Model and singer Nadia Forde has revealed that her worst nightmare is to have a potential date read up about her online.
Nadia's star power has rocketed since she appeared on I'm a Celebrity and her romantic life has been a source of interest.
While she's currently not seeing anyone, Nadia admits the idea of a potential suitor reading all about her personal life fills her with dread.
"It's very frustrating and I think people have this misconception about me before they meet me. My biggest fear is for a guy to Google me," she told the Diary.
"I don't Google myself so I don't know what they see.
"I'm single. In an ideal world they wouldn't look and they would just get to know me from the get go but I totally look - if I meet someone, I'm checking their Facebook and Twitter - that's just the way it is," she added.
However, she says she has always made an effort too keep her work and personal lives separate.
"Even when I was with Luke [Fitzgerald] we made an effort to keep things separate. We never lived like that, I don't think we ever went to an event together," she said.
"We were together for years, you have to keep some things to yourself. There's so much rubbish written about me and I'm not going to let that stuff destroy my relationship."
While many have speculated about her relationships, especially with golfer Rory McIlroy, Nadia admits she's lucky that the men in her life have understood that she isn't the one fuelling the rumours.
"It's very hurtful [when stories about my love life come out]. You do get to the point where you laugh at some of them, it's ridiculous.
"Rory never made me feel like it was me (fuelling the rumours), or any of them for that matter," she said.
The 25-year-old brunette also believes that her busy career just isn't compatible with a serious relationship.
"The travel is the best part but also the worst part. How do you get to meet someone and be like 'I'm going to Ibiza, then Miami and then Australia'. It takes a strong man to deal with it I think," she admits.
"My ideal man is someone that's kind, understanding, up for a bit of banter and can make you laugh - once you're laughing that's the most important thing. That's one thing I like about the Irish lads, they don't take themselves too seriously, they have great banter, English men do as well but Americans not so much."
