The X Factor judge said that she would prefer a successful love life to her pop and TV career.
Contostavlos split from her long-term boyfriend and former N-Dubz bandmate Fazer earlier this year, while she has also had a short-lived relationship with actor Jack O'Connell.
"Everything goes great in my career, but my personal life has just been s**t," she told Look. "Fame and money – I don't give a crap about all that stuff.
"If you could put me in a little house in the countryside with a picket fence, a husband, dogs and a family where I can feel love and happiness, I would trade that in a second."
Contostavlos added that she struggles to meet anyone for a long-term relationship during her busy schedule.
"There's nowhere for me to meet anyone. Men are scared of me and won't approach me," she explained. "Even if I like someone and I'm fluttering my eyelashes, they still run a mile. So I wouldn't have dates if I didn't approach people."
"That's why I go for really tough lads, because only they can handle it."
Contostavlos was recently spotted with her ex-boyfriend Adam Bailey in North London.
