Despite being pretty, the 31-year-old says even she has a hard time finding a date.
“I would love to be a mom. I just don’t know ... I kind of need a guy first,” Vonn was quoted as saying by CNN.
“Dating is tough. Most of the time the normal guys are too intimidated and the guys that have enough confidence, have too much confidence. It’s really hard, I haven’t navigated my way very well,” added Vonn, who dated former World No 1 golfer Tiger Woods.
Despite her public spilt from Woods last May, Vonn says that she is still fond of her former lover.
“I still love him. He’s a great guy, he’s a great father, and I have the utmost respect for him. And I just wish him the best. We’re friends. We’re just two adults and it didn’t work out,” Vonn said in an Access Hollywood interview.
She also knows exactly what she is looking for in her partner.
“I want someone that is self confident, but doesn’t have a huge ego. Someone who supports everything I do and doesn’t hold me back. Someone who encourages me to do what I want to do and what’s good for me and my skiing and my life.”
Vonn’s a dog lover
She says that the two must-have qualities of her partner are — to win over her dad first and love for canines. “Getting along with my dad is the biggest challenge. Oh, and must be a dog lover. If not, it’s a no go.”
