Britney Spears has "turned to online dating websites in a bid to bag a new man."
According to National Enquirer Spears has been "scouring Internet matchmaking sites, looking for her Mr. Right."
"She doesn't have the courage to go on any dates yet, but she's doing a lot of anonymous flirting," a so-called "friend" tells the Enquirer.
"Britney has tried several sites, including MillionaireMatch.com and RichSoulMate.com. She's found a few guys she thinks are hot. She'll chat and flirt but won't go further."
"They think it's a good thing that she's occupying her time with thoughts of moving on in the romance department," explains the Enquirer source. "They're not opposed to her doing the online thing so long as she doesn't actually go out and meet a stranger from the sites."
