Sam Smith wants a daddy! Non-binary star wants to date older men as they admit feeling lonely during lockdown
British singer Sam Smith revealed Sunday that they want to date an older man after “freaking out” about being single during coronavirus lockdown.
The 27-year-old non-binary star’s last public relationship was with 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn in 2018. Once social distancing restrictions were enforced by government, Smith jumped to dating apps.
Same, Smith, same.
Sam Smith: ‘I think I want to be with someone older now.’
Speaking on SiriusXM, Smith said: “For the first two weeks I was like: ‘Oh my God, I’m single’.
“I went on this dating thing and it was the worst!
“And then you get attached to guys, and then you’re forming quarantine relationships over the phone, it’s a dangerous path.”
The “Promises” hitmaker added: “I think I want to be with someone older now.
“I need someone who has passions and has their own drive.
“It’s nice to be able to date on your phone. I haven’t done it in years – I just want the romance.”

“But sometimes maybe people can read it wrongly but that wasn’t really meaning it in a malicious or nasty way, I was just trying to be myself.”
