With cuffing season around the corner, now is the time to find your person. Zac Efron, who recently split with ex-girlfriend Sami Miro, is on the prowl for a partner. You’d think that a stud muffin like Zac Efron wouldn’t have any problems in the dating realm — but according to Zac, no one wants to date him. Yep, seriously.

In an interview with British paper The Times, Zac dished on his love life — and said it’s hard to convince his dates that he’s different IRL from the bros he plays in the movies. “Dating is something I’ll never be able to do,” he told the publication. “As in the dictionary definition of dating… A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think of me.”

Ummm, we volunteer for an extra-long date! Zac explained that he has tried dating apps, but they pose a unique problem — none of his matches ever believe it’s actually him. Understandable, TBH — imagine matching with the actual, real Zac Efron! “Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me!” he said. “They thought [my profile] was fake.” Well, Zac, that’s what verified profiles are for!

But still, he can’t claim no one wants to date him, because we’d like to offer up ourselves as evidence to the contrary, thank you very much.
