Miley Cyrus worries she will never find someone who "loves her for who she is."
The 'Wrecking Ball' singer - who broke off her engagement with Liam Hemsworth last year and was recently romantically linked with Kellan Lutz - can't understand how she is viewed by guys and doesn't think she will find anyone who enjoys her outrageous antics.
A source said: "Miley has absolutely no self awareness. She doesn't see herself the way guys do.
"She'd love to be in a relationship - she worries she will never find someone who loves her for who she is - but she's totally unaware of why guys dump her."
Miley unveiled a drastic new image in 2013, with short, dyed hair, skimpy revealing outfits, songs referencing drugs and popularising the raunchy dance move Twerking, but experts say these things could put men off.
Flaunting her sexuality for attention can make a man feel like he can't keep the attention of his partner and she will soon bore with him and brea up.
The 21-year-old star's friends add that behind the strong image, Miley is still suffers from confidence issues, which in many cases in people manifests itself in over compensating as a cover.
