Foals Yannis' relationship strife

Yannis Philippakis says he finds it hard to get a girlfriend

Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis has said he hasn't had a girlfriend for a long time - because he finds it hard to connect with people.

The singer revealed he has not had a "proper girlfriend" since he was at university, but that he hoped to be married in 10 years' time.

He told the Guardian: "I have had a series of relationships with girls, but I wouldn't call them girlfriends. I have a tendency to intermittent recurring relationships with people who are also dysfunctional."

He added: "I like women a lot. I don't have problems engaging physically, but mentally."

However the singer, whose band are releasing their second album Total Life Forever, described what he would like for himself in 10 years, saying: "I'll still be making music, and taking photos, but with a wife. And I definitely want kids."
