Los Angeles: Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis who recently parted ways with boyfriend, actor George Clooney, says the end of her relationship felt like a personal failure.
The 32-year-old who dated Clooney for two years said she keeps herself busy in work to get over the breakup, Us magazine reported.
"It was a difficult time for me. When I lose something I always find a good reason to go forward. I throw myself into my work. It`s the only thing I can cling to.
"You have to accept that Prince Charming coming to save you is not going to happen. It works against you. At the end of the day I have always seen the end of my relationships as a personal failure. There is nothing ever pretty in saying goodbye," Canalis said.
The actress also said she is often attracted to self-assured men with strong personalities.
"I`m a bit of a tomboy, but when it comes to love I am a doormat. I`m looking for men who can give me security," Canalis added.
