Sam Smith is getting candid about the hilarious mix-up that led to them launching multiple dating apps.
When asked about his dating app history, the singer-songwriter, who identifies as non-binary and uses “they/them” pronouns, recently revealed a ET Canada“I never did Grindr. I did Tinder once, I think I got kicked off Tinder.
Sharing that they were frustrated after popular dating apps didn’t believe their accounts were real, they added: “They took me off the hook because they thought it wasn’t me.”
The Grammy winner, who says he’s no longer on any dating sites, admitted the removal came after he failed to verify his accounts, a must amid viral romance scams such as “Tinder scammer.”
“Well I didn’t verify my profile so I should have,” joked the 30-year-old.
Selfie verification on dating apps like Hinge is a security feature that allows users to authenticate themselves. Being “verified” also helps other daters spot fake profiles and catfishers, confirming that a person really is who they say they are.
talking with British GQ in October, Smith shared that they’ve “only had three boyfriends.”
“All of them, equally, were just amazing teachers,” they shared.
While taking a hiatus from digital romance, the “Unholy” singer joked that if they restarted their search for love, their online profile would be dedicated to McDonald’s and their love for their pup, Velma, whose they say “he taught me love.”
“I really feel like I don’t think I love anybody but my family and friends and stuff. … He’s really taught me that,” they said of their beloved dog.
Smith’s fourth studio album, “Gloria,” will be released Friday.
