Troye Sivan Talks About His Most Awkward Grindr Date

Troye Sivan is sharing the story of his first Grindr experience.

As we shared yesterday, the Australian singer is gearing up for the release of his latest album.

While talking to PopCrush, 22-year-old Sivan talked about past dating struggles, his current relationship, and how his perspective on love influences his music.

First, Troye Sivan shared the story of an awkward Grindr date he had. The singer says that the two were just hanging out when the other guy randomly pulled out his phone and started looking around on Grindr… right in front of him.

“It was a while ago, back in a time when it was a little bit less accepted and a little bit more scary,” Sivan told PopCrush. “I was like, ‘Okay. I think I'm just gonna go home.’”

Now in present day, Sivan’s learned from experiences like that one date, and has discovered what he wants out of his romantic relationships.

“I am definitely a serial monogamist,” Troye says. “I don’t really know. I’ve only ever had a couple of relationships, but they’ve been one after the other.”

With that, things are going well for Troye Sivan since that dud of a Grindr date. Not only is he dating model Jacob Bixenman, but he’s also got a rising singing and acting career.

But, experiences like that one date will continue to influence his music.

“I’m gonna definitely continue to be honest in my music and keep writing from my perspective, which happens to be a queer one. And, of course, I wanna keep up any sort of activism work that I do, but I don’t know if I’m necessarily responsible for the conversation around my music being centered around my sexuality. I’ve never had a problem with it. I know some people do, because some people don’t wanna be ever boxed in as anything. I don’t really see the big deal because I am a gay artist, and I’m totally fine to be called a gay artist.”

Good for you Troye Sivan for knowing what you want, for working for it, and sticking to it. We look forward to your upcoming album.
