It's been three months since Sam Smith parted ways with Brandon Flynn, and the singer finally opened up about the split and their eight-month relationship.

“I’m still trying to figure out what I took from that relationship and what it meant to me,” Smith told UK’s The Times. “It’s still quite raw.”  

He also called the 13 Reasons Why star "wonderful," and shared that the breakup wasn't nasty. “Seeing gay relationships [in a public way] is important and refreshing,” he further noted. “You don’t see it loads.”

Smith has since been on tour, but has not lost hope about love. “I love sending flowers, leaving notes around the house and making thoughtful presents,” he revealed. “I feel like I’m in a Richard Curtis film all the time, which is bad because I think everything should be like a movie and I get anxiety when it’s not.”
