Jennifer Love Hewitt has given up on blind dates after a string of nightmare dinners with men her friends thought were perfect for her.

The 26-year-old actress is using traditional means to find a date now, because she doesn't want to spend another evening with a weirdo.

She admits, "I attract interesting people... I went out with a guy who yelled at me for the entire time I was eating: 'Why are you eating your steak like that? Why do you want ketchup? What is that?'

"I was like, 'OK.' I was very nervous and people were like looking at us. I'm like, 'Dude, stop yelling at me for eating.' He thought the date was fantastic.

"I also went out with a guy who handed me a pack of Altoids at the beginning of the night so, 'When we make out later...' and then I had another guy call us a couple in the first two seconds.

"We sat down at the table and he's like, 'So, do you think other couples are staring at us. I'm like, 'Couple?' He got really attached.

"I wouldn't blind date now. That would be weird."
