London: Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he is having a tough time making small talk with the ladies.

Radcliffe, 21, who is back to chasing girls after his split from long-term girlfriend, actress Laura O’Toole, also admitted that he finds dating to be quite nerve-racking as it is not something he is used to.

“I was in a relationship for about three years. At the moment, I’m just being single and running around chasing girls,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“I’m not getting too many responses, but, yes, I’m having a go. I’m also starting to go on dates for the first time. I’ve never really done it because all my girlfriends I’ve met through work.

“So we got to know each other really well at work then kind of ended up going out.

“Not that I struggle with talking, but I have this incredible anxiety about awkward silences and pauses and all that stuff, which I think everyone worries about.

“And I get quite wound up about that beforehand. I do actually manage to get quite chatty in the end - probably too much - and probably a bit boring,” he added.
