    I find it hard to believe but the lovely British actress Felicity Jones tells me she is having problems finding a boyfriend.      
 Having recently broken up with artist Eddie Fornieles after a ten year relationship, the angelic-looking Felicity is unattached and confesses to having difficulties playing the dating game.
   “I went on a couple of dates recently and they were very awkward,” she tells me. “I don’t want to go into the gory details of my love life but I was with this person and it was so awkward because you know what it’s like when you are so nervous you don’t know what to say to each other but you really like the person? And it’s always when you like someone that you never know what to say. Why is that? It’s so annoying. But when you don’t like someone you feel so cool and you say all these wonderful things.”
   The green-eyed actress who is at the centre of plenty of Oscar buzz for her role as Stephen Hawking's wife Jane Wilde in The Theory of Everything, had been with Fornieles since they met while they were both studying at Oxford University and they lived together in Bethnal Green until the beginning of this year.
  “I have had love and I have lost love and I was just in a very long relationship that was very important to me but unfortunately it broke down,” she says. “But I learned so much from that relationship and I am glad that person was very, very important to me and I had him in my life.”
   She is, she says, single at the moment but adds: “I am definitely romantic and I love romantic stories---that’s why I keep making romantic movies. It’s funny how seeing a love story never gets boring because it’s the dream isn’t it? It’s the dream to have a true connection with another human being.”
