— -- Britney Spears is opening up about her dating life. And apparently, it isn't always easy for the "Boys" singer.
"I had a really bad date. I mean, it was really bad," she admitted in the October issue of Marie Claire UK.
"I’ve been single for ages and had a date with a guy I liked. I was getting anxious, worrying he wouldn’t like me," she continued. "We went to the movies, but I could tell right away it wasn’t working. It was sort of awkward. So after the movie I came home and that was it. It just didn’t work ... He just wasn’t that into me. I liked him. He knew that. But he definitely didn’t feel the same."
"It happens to everybody. Being famous doesn’t make you any different," Spears said.
When she isn't dating, Spears, 34, is raising her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline -- Sean Preston, 10, and Jayden James, 9.
The pop star, whose latest album "Glory" was released last month, said that her children have changed her, including by boosting her self-confidence.
"Becoming a mother and being with my boys has made me so much more accepting of myself," she explained. "I'm their mom, whatever. That has been a really big thing for me over these last few years."
