Sam Smith admits they got kicked off 2 dating apps over a hilarious mistake
Sam Smith is getting candid about the hilarious mix-up that caused her to quit multiple dating apps.
When asked about her dating app history, the singer-songwriter, who identifies as non-binary and uses “they/they” pronouns, recently revealed to ET Canada, “I’ve never done Grindr. I did Tinder once, I think I got kicked out of Tinder.”
They shared they were thwarted after the popular dating apps didn’t believe their accounts were legit, adding, “I got kicked off Hinge because they thought I wasn’t me.”
The Grammy winner, who says she’s no longer on a dating site, admitted the removal came after she failed to verify her accounts, which is a must with viral love scams like Tinder Swindler.
“Well I didn’t verify my profile so I should have,” joked the 30-year-old.
Selfie verification in dating apps like Hinge is a security feature that allows users to authenticate themselves. Being “verified” also helps other daters weed out fake profiles and catfishers and confirms that a person is really who they say they are.
In 2020, Smith was reported to have been dating furniture designer François Rocci. They were spotted cuddling with fashion designer Christian Cowan in New York last week.
Speaking to Britain’s GQ in October, Smith revealed they “only had three friends.”
“They were all equally just incredible teachers,” they shared.
While taking a break from digital romance, the “Unholy” singer joked that if they rekindled their search for love, which they say they do, her online profile would be dedicated to McDonald’s and her love for her pup Velma “taught me how to love.”
“I really feel like I didn’t love anyone but my family and friends and stuff. … She really taught me that,” they said of their beloved dog.
Smith’s fourth studio album Gloria is due out on Friday.
