约翰·梅尔 is giving insight into his decision to drop out of the dating game.

格莱美奖得主, 45, discussed the role his sobriety has played in his dating tendencies (or now, lack thereof) 在 [object Window] podcast’s first-ever holiday special.

Dating is no longer a codified activity for me, it doesn’t exist in a kind of… it’s not patterned anymore,” he told host Alex Cooper.

I don’t really date — I don’t think that I have to, to be quite honest. I quit drinking like six years ago, so I don’t have the liquid courage. I just have dry courage,” 他加了.

The catalyst for Mayer’s sobriety came in the form of Drake’s 30th birthday and the subsequent six-day hangover Mayer suffered as a result of drinking at the party.

The singer has not had a drink since Oct. 23, 2016, he previously shared.

迈耶, who’s famously been linked to 泰勒斯威夫特, 詹妮弗安妮斯顿, 凯蒂·佩里, 杰西卡·辛普森, 敏卡·凯利Jennifer Love Hewitt, also addressed his reputation for being awomanizer.

“我认为, 看, the elephant in the room is that I’m on a show that caters to women, and I have a couple of name plates on me, like ‘Lotharioand ‘womanizer,’ and I think that is what that is,” he told Cooper.

But I think people would be surprised to know that it was less me going like, you know the meme of the guy behind the tree? It was less this [Mayer rubs his hands together] and more like this [Mayer looks around]: 我? Because it was always set forth to me that like, that shouldn’t happen,” 他加了.

成长, Mayer said that he wasmade to believethat if somebody liked or showed any interest in him, the attention was anaccident,” and so he shouldcapitalizeon the opportunity.

And so I felt very deeply when somebody liked me. Very deeply,” 这 “Gravitysinger explained.

Though he may no longer be actively dating, Mayer says he’s always believed in making love last.

Every relationship I’ve ever been in was devoted to the idea that this could go the distance,” 他说.

My entire life, today included, if you told me that I could have a great two months with someone but it would end on the first day of the third month, I would not be interested,” continued the singer-songwriter. “I’ve always sought potential for a long-term relationship.
