Back in April the star admitted they freaked out about being single when the coronavirus lockdown started in the UK.
The singer’s last serious relationship was with Brandon Flynn, 26, in 2018, and the star revealed they immediately turned to dating apps when the restrictions were imposed.
Speaking on SiriusXM, the singer 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…’
Sam also revealed they want to date an older man after scouting for matches on the exclusive dating app Raya.
They said: ‘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.’
Sam previously admitted they were hit hard by the pain of the break-up from Brandon and said they felt at their lowest when touring.
Sam said: ‘Being on tour is a bit of a crazy experience, I get really low sometimes on tour.
‘I feel like I sound so depressing all the time when I talk about it, but I get depressed on tour.
‘I think it’s the responsibly and pressure that makes me struggle.’
The Promises hitmaker also confessed that they hated seeing couples being romantic with one another, and often became jealous of other people’s relationships.
Sam admitted: ‘I’ve just gone through a break-up so I’m not in the mood for romance.
‘When I see couples I just want to poke their eyes. It’s hard to be happy for other people when you feel so s**t.’
