Mumbai: In the wake of her break-up with businessman Ness Wadia followed by fresh link-ups with cricketers and corporates, actress Preity Zinta is feeling "dull" about her personal life and is "scared" of talking to men.

"Right now I am balancing my professional life only. I don`t have a personal life. I have stopped talking to anybody because I am scared that I might get linked with them. Now I have stopped talking to men... I tell them go away please... bring your wife along with you," Preity said.

When asked about how she feels about it, the bubbly actress said, "yeah... absolutely dull".

Preity and the Bombay Dyeing heir broke up in 2009. As of now the duo share only a professional relationship as partners of their IPL team, Kings X1 Punjab.

In the recent past, rumours had it that Preity had gone on a secret date with her former team player and Australian fast-bowler Brett Lee at a nightspot in Mumbai.

According to the Bollywood grapevine, the 36-year-old actress was also cosying up to cricketer Yuvraj Singh.

Her name was also linked with New York-based hotelier Vikram Chatwal.

"My poor Brett Lee... he worked with us for three years and the one time I was talking to him over dinner I got linked with him. The dinner was never between him and me, it was between a friend and me and he happened to come there and say hello. I couldn`t have told him, `Don`t sit here because you are not in my team`," Preity said.
