The `American Boy` singer is currently single and believes the success she has enjoyed over the years puts off potential boyfriends.
She said: "I don`t actively try and court men who don`t know what the hell my life is about, because it takes a lot of explaining. The worst part is meeting guys and seeing their faces fall as they realise they can`t remotely deal with my lifestyle or me as a woman."
Estelle, 32, insists she doesn`t want to be impressed by a man as she just wants him to be himself.
She said: "My mentality is that I don`t care about being impressed. I just want you to be a man. He just has to be .... Manly."
Because of her busy lifestyle, the `Break My Heart` hitmaker says she will have to rely on technology to meet someone and maintain a relationship.
She told The Times Weekend magazine: "You have to look on the bright side. Because of e-mail and Skype, it lends itself to being able to court the person. You spend more time talking and communicating as human beings, not just, `Well, I`m going to sleep with them tonight and never see them again.` "
