Nadia's warning to HER WOULD-BE boyfriends: 'PLEASE DON'T google me'
ANY prospective suitors for Nadia Forde have received a major hint if they want to win her over.
'Do not Google me' is the message from the top Irish model.
"I've gone through the craziest few years of a girl's life in terms of first relationship and first heartbreak. And while I wouldn't say everyone knows about it, it is there for people to find if they want it," she said.
"I find myself in a situation that if I meet someone, I tell them I don't want them to Google me. I don't know what's going to come up, I have no control over it and it might not be accurate.
"I'd rather them get to know me for myself."
When you do Google Nadia, an array of scantily-clad images come up, photos which, she agrees, can give men an over-sexualised perception of her.
"I definitely think that because my friends say it all the time," she says.
"I think that guys might have that opinion of me, I think when they meet me it changed. Remember, I wear pug pyjamas and have a Minnie Mouse stuffed animal on my bed."
She split from Ireland rugby player Luke Fitzgerald two years ago and most recently, hasn't been able to escape rumours of a romance with Rory McIlroy.
"I want to be with someone I can one hundred per cent be myself around and I haven't found that," she says.
"It's just going to take a really special person for me to think about it. I'm so comfortable on my own that it's going to take a lot - I've been single for two years."
