"Lily hates being single - she needs a man in her life. She feels insecure going to events and hates turning up without a man. She wants someone to hold her hand for all the red carpet events she attends," Contactmusic quoted the source as saying. "She's even been asking friends to set her up on dates. She can't seem to meet anyone, and it's making her miserable," the source added.
Sources say that Allen is concerned about her public image and thinks remaining single will hamper her profile before the upcoming U.K tour. "Lily's vulnerable after her relationships failed. She is especially concerned about going on her tour without a boyfriend there for her backstage. She needs a man to take care of her, and to give her attention. Without that, she fears she'll go off the rails." the source said. The 24-year-old singer has previously dated DJ Seb Chew, 32, and Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons, 39.
