Forget the dangers and woes of trying to find good men on “dating apps” like Tinder and Grindr. You don’t even need apps to meet them, according to British crooner Sam Smith.

The 22-year-old singer told Metro this week that apps are ruining romance and when it came time to find his own boyfriend, he did it the old-fashioned way.

No offense to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance, I really do,” he said. “We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people.”

He added: “From my experience the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest, so why would I swipe people who are ‘unattractive’ when I could potentially fall in love with them? Stop Tinder and Grindr!”

Smith also hints for the first time since coming out in May that he is no longer single. “I’ve been on a couple of dates,” he said. “I’m good at dates. I used to get really nervous but now I’m better. There is one particular guy that I’ve been on a few dates with. I like him but who knows?”
