The Big Love star admits she has struggled to find love because the men she dates try too hard to impress her by being "cool" and refusing to let her pay for meals.
She tells Britain's Psychologies magazine, "My friends are always telling me I'm intimidating. My dates are probably not being themselves on the date - they're trying to be cool. And I think it's still a problem if a woman earns more than a man. I try to pay for half of dinner and a guy will behave as if I'm trying to prove I have more money than him."
And Sevigny is convinced her busy schedule also complicates her relationships and keeps her from finding the perfect partner.
She adds, "(They) have to have job flexibility and be able to travel when I'm away filming. If they're tied down in New York it's going to be difficult because of my lifestyle. If I'm in Manchester for six months he has to be able to get on a plane and come visit me. You know, at my age, you have to consider these things instead of just being spontaneous."
The 37 year old has previously been linked to British rocker Jarvis Cocker and actors Vincent Gallo and Jason Segel.
