If you swiped right and matched with Sam Smith on Hinge or Tinder, would you belief it? According to the "Unholy" singer, many people don't believe it's them.

As reported by Daily Mail, Smith says that they have "always been able to date," but people don't always believe they are the real thing.

In fact, Smith recounts being kicked off of the dating apps Tinder and Hinge over their profile being flagged as fake.

"I never did Grindr," Smith told ET Canada. "I did Tinder once, I think I got chucked off of Tinder. I got chucked off of Hinge because they thought that I wasn't me."

Recently, Smith has been busy dating around. They have been connected to designer Christian Cowan, model Jay Camilleri, actor Andy Newton Lee, and actor Brandon Flynn.

Speaking of love, Smith also opened up about the impact their dog Velma has had on them.

"She taught me how to love," Smith said of the canine. "I really feel like I don't think I loved anyone other than my family and friends and stuff ... she's really taught me that. I miss her loads by the way, I haven't seen her in ages."

Smith's new EP "Gloria" is out this Friday, just before they embark on a 27-date North American music tour.
