Sam Smith Reveals Being Banned from Dating Apps after Catfish Mix-up
The Unholy singer appeared for an interview with ET Canada on Monday and opened up about their dating scene. “I never did Grindr. I did Tinder once, I think I got chucked off of Tinder. I got chucked off of Hinge because they thought that I wasn’t me,” said Smith, adding, “Well, I didn’t verify my profile, so I should have done that.”
The London native further revealed that though they have a pretty hectic schedule, they have ‘always been able to date.’ They also stated that they are off dating apps currently, and if they had to make a dating profile now, it would be a silly one, mentioning their dog Velma and their love for McDonald’s.
The Singer was Recently Spotted with Christian Cowan
While the singer is no longer on dating apps, they recently sparked affair rumors with designer Christian Cowan after being spotted with him in New York City last week. The two were also seen together in December when they visited the White House for the signing of the Respect for Marriage Act.
Smith has previously been linked to model Jay Camilleri, actor Brandon Flynn and actor Andy Newton Lee. The singer has kept his current relationship status private, however, they did talk about how their dog Velma changed their perspective on love.
“She taught me how to love. I really feel like I don’t think I loved anyone other than my family and friends and stuff… she’s really taught me that. I miss her loads by the way, I haven’t seen her in ages,” said the singer.
Smith wants to Keep their Relationships Private
In an interview in October last year, Smith talked about their romantic life in an interview and said, “Over the last few years, as I’ve become confident in my skin, I’ve got loads of wonderful romantic attention. It’s been incredible. I’m so open to it. And I know what I want, and I know who I am, and I’m excited for that.”
“I have had relationships where I’ve shared stuff online and talked about it here and there. And I just don’t want to do that. I think being loved by someone is such a gift – for yourself. And I think my job can get in the way of that – the purity of that love – sometimes,” they added.
Smith also revealed that they had had three partners till now, and every one of them has taught them something. “All of them, equally, were just incredible teachers. And I think that now, it’s definitely changed how I am in relationships because I don’t need another person to direct me to me. I direct them to me myself. Because I know who I am. And it’s beautiful,” they stated.
