While discussing “basic tenets” in a relationship with The Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stanger, Andy vocalized that he prefers to talk to guys who are upfront about their dating intentions. 

“I will say when I go around Hinge and all these dating apps I’m on and then I flake out and put it down,” he said, adding, “I will say I usually respond to people who are very direct about what they want.”

Andy Cohen and John Mayer address dating rumors

Andy's love life has recently made headlines when he responded to "speculation" about his friendship with John Mayer, specifically that the two are dating. However, the WWHL host made it clear that he is solely friends with the singer.

“I honestly love John Mayer, and he loves me. But because we are so affectionate to each other, people don’t know what box to put that in,” Andy told The Hollywood Reporter. “They assume we are sleeping with each other, which we are most definitely not."

A day later, John, took it upon himself to address the rumors surrounding him and Andy’s tight-knit connection in his own statement.

He wrote, in part: “I think that to suggest that people are dubious of a friendship like mine and Andy’s is to undermine the public’s ability to accept and understand diversity in all facets of culture, be it in art or in real life.”

John concluded his letter: “Reinforcing the idea that any gay/straight relationship needs qualification that it’s not sexual devoids everyone involved of their dignity.”

After John released his statement, Andy later responded on his Daddy Diaries Podcast on May 17: “This should now put an end to anyone asking us, ‘What’s the deal with you two? Explain it.'"
