Alexandra Burke too scared to trust
Alexandra Burke finds it hard to open up to people, she has revealed.
The Bad Boys star is cautious about letting others get close to her after being crowned X Factor winner in 2008.
"It's hard not to be wary so when someone comes along, I always put my guard up; I have to remember not to judge everyone because there are good people out there in the world," she told the Daily Star.
She added: "It's quite frightening how wary I am - it's a cliche, but it's the truth. I need to be careful of not judging a book by its cover. That's a rough thing to do."
Alexandra, whose new single Broken Heels is out now, admitted that's one of the reasons why she hasn't found love.
"Guys can walk around and meet loads of girls, and they don't really care. They don't get emotionally attached, but girls really do," she said.
"I don't want to get hurt again because I'm happy. I'm scared that if I got hurt right now, it would distract me from where I'm going."
