"I've never had a boyfriend so I don't really know any different, which I think is very lucky actually," he told E! News when asked what it's like to date as a celebrity. "I'm still learning on what's right and what's normal in dates."
"I think with anyone," he continues, "you have to learn how to trust people and there's different challenges and hurdles in my life now but I'm trying to remain as normal as I was before."
In spite of those comments, the "Drowning Shadows" crooner was linked with King in April after a lowkey tweet flew online.
Apparently neither was as serious as anyone thought, at least not in Sam's eyes.
"Is anyone ready for a relationship? Who knows," he said in conclusion. And when it comes to what it might take for a man to become his someone special, Smith doesn't seem to know what that form that would take.
"I've been single for 23 years so I don't know. It's going to take something."
