Listen up ladies… Ed Sheeran’s on the hunt for a non-celeb girlfriend

It's been over two months since Ed Sheeran split from his girlfriend Athina Andrelos, and it seems this time he wants a girlfriend who's a bit more down-to-earth.

The Thinking Out Loud singer hasn't had the best luck with the ladies over the last couple of years, but his friends are trying to get him back out there with someone new, and even though the singer is said to be "very picky," they already have a few possible matches lined up.

"His friends want to set him up with a new girl and have their eye on a few people they've mentioned to him but he's very picky for obvious reasons," a source told The Mirror.

So what's he looking for in a new girlfriend? Someone just like the rest of us, it would seem. "Ed doesn't want a famous girlfriend, he just wants someone down to earth and normal to share his life with," the insider revealed.

Unfortunately, any of Ed's megafans can rule themselves out, as the singer's pals refuse to let him get involved with anyone who only wants him for his fame. "His friends are looking out for him," the source said.

We can understand why the Don't hitmaker wants to be cautious when trying to meet someone new, as his last few matches haven't exactly worked out too well.

Not only did Ellie Goulding reportedly ditch him in favour of a one-night-stand with Niall from One Direction, but Athina called it quits in March after a notoriously drunk night out at the BRITs caused tension between the pair.

Ed was pictured looking more than a little worse for wear a few hours after the awards ceremony ended, and the photos unfortunately were splashed all over the media by the time the poor lad woke up with a hungover head the next day. 

Sources say Athina was NOT happy, and broke the year-long relationship off a few weeks later.

"Ed's mates weren't too keen on Athina and weren't disappointed when they split after the Brit Awards. It's very unlikely they'll be getting back together," the insider said.

Any normal, down-to-earth ladies out there (who preferably have never heard of Ed Sheeran before)… consider this your official call-out!
