Louise Redknapp has revealed her dating app woes as she tries to find love again, three years after her split from ex-husband Jamie.
The singer, 46, explained in an extract from her upcoming book that after speaking to one man she was ghosted, still not receiving a reply after five entire months.
And while saying that the ‘new world of dating is difficult to navigate’, the star did add that her teenage son Charley, 16, has been giving her some advice.
It comes after Louise recently admitted she ‘ran’ from her 21 year marriage to Jamie and had thoughts of ending her life amid the divorce.

Reflecting on her dating woes, Louise explained how she’d been talking to one man for a while but after telling him she was going on a bike ride, the messages stopped.
According to The Sun, Louise wrote: ‘It’s been five months and no reply. I’m just sitting here wondering what was it that I said? Are bike rides that unattractive?
‘Basically, this is a way to say the new world of dating is so opaque and difficult to navigate.’
However she did admit that dating after her divorce means she’s able to learn what she ‘needs and deserves’ from her next partner.

And luckily for Louise, she’s had help from her sons in the dating world with Charley, 16, warning her off taking conversations with potential beaus onto Snapchat.
Explaining how she once told the teenager a man she was talking with wanted to swap onto the app, Charley ‘immediately was like ‘Mum, no’, as apparently dates ‘just want to share explicit photos’.
Louise also admitted that whoever she does end up having a relationship with will have to be able to deal with the ‘circus’ and all the attention she gets being famous.
The blonde beauty is expected to reveal more about her dating life and family in her book, You’ve Got This, which is released later this week.

It comes after her candid chat with You magazine in which she detailed her feelings about the split with Jamie, three years on.
Having rediscovered her love for herself following her stint on Strictly Come Dancing, the singer admitted: ‘I didn’t want to lose so much of the good feeling.
‘Before anyone could stop me, I just ran, as fast as the wind would take me. I never once looked behind, until maybe too late.
‘I should have paused for a minute and thought about other people and had just a bit more time to work out why I felt I couldn’t do it any more. All I know is, I wish I’d tried [to save the marriage].’
She added: ‘I want to say to anybody who is thinking of running: ‘Just slow down. Don’t run.’ Because once you run too fast, you can’t make up the ground you’ve lost.
Helping mum out: Louise said Charley, 16, warned her off taking conversations with potential beaus onto Snapchat (pictured together alongside the performer’s younger son Beau, 12)
‘Stop, say what you need, say what you think, don’t be afraid to say what’s really going on. You don’t have to be quiet.’
Louise also admitted she ‘f**ked things up’. Speaking about her post-divorce return to performing, she said: ‘I don’t think I would have been in the West End or made a new album if I hadn’t maybe f**ked things up. There’s a part of you that thrives on the fight, to make you what you are.’
Louise explained that she was so tormented by her split that she contemplated ending it all by stepping out in front of a bus.
But the prospect of leaving her sons Charley, now 16, and Beau, now 12, without a mother forced her to brush aside her suicidal thoughts.
Recalling her turmoil, she said: ‘I would be standing in Central London, watching the buses whizz past and I would wonder whether it would be easier for a bus to take me out.
‘All it would take was for me to step out at the wrong moment and it would all be over.’
Asked if suicide was a genuine possibility, she replied: ‘I think so, for a split second. I was like, ‘I would really like this all to go away.’
‘But I’ve got two little men I know need me more than anything. That’s where my selfishness stops – when it comes to them.
‘I remember looking at Selfridges and the buses and being like, ‘God, I’ve got two people that need me, and they’re the loves of my life, so…’ They’re the only thing that kept me going. Them and my mum.’
