He recently told The Guardian he had different guys he was trying to date cheering him on in the American Idol audience each week.

And almost 10 years since making his name on the hit show, Adam Lambert has revealed he’s still a ‘multi-dater’ – but hasn’t lost hope of finding ‘something significant and monogamous’ one day.

Speaking to GSN, the handsome star admitted: ‘I haven’t been in a relationship for about five years. I’ve been working and traveling quite a bit so dating is temporary and transient.’

‘What’s hard is attempting to see each other again’

Opening up about looking for love on the road, the Ghost Town singer also added: ‘I could meet and really click with a special guy in whatever city I’m in for a few days, but then I have to continue to my next destination.

‘What’s hard is attempting to see each other again – especially after just a first date.

‘That’s a lot of expectation and pressure to place on someone. Flying to another country for a second date is understandably intimidating.’

He furthermore said: ‘I’m a multi-dater for now. My inner romantic always hopes that I could meet someone and it would grow into something significant and monogamous.’

While speaking to The Guardian, Adam also opened up about dating and not addressing his sexuality during his runner up appearance on American Idol in 2009.

‘I had a handful of different guys I was trying to date’

‘People were saying: “You didn’t declare it on the show.” I didn’t, but I also didn’t realize that I needed to. I’d already come out.” [If] I’d been in a long-term relationship and had my partner in the audience every week it would have come up, but that wasn’t the case.

‘In fact, I had a handful of different guys I was trying to date that I’d invite to the show on different weeks. I wasn’t consistent enough!’

Earlier this year Adam revealed that he has tried out dating app for the stars, Raya, to no success.

‘I’m on there. I’ve already done that one. I’ve come through it and I didn’t meet anyone!’ he laughed.

Adam is currently in the UK for a series of concerts with the iconic band Queen.
