Ross Mathews Talks About Dating Again After a Long-Term Relationship

Ross Mathews shows off his rainbow heels on the cover of Attitude magazine’s October 2019 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 39-year-old comedian shared with the mag:

On how US network executives are still wary of putting flamboyant gay men on TV: “Hollywood has been a wonderful and accepting place; California is a great place to live if you are a flamboyant gay person. But I do think that TV executives are still a little wary of putting really flamboyant gay men on television — we’ve still got a long way to go. Just look at the landscape of TV. If I were able to tone it down a bit, maybe I’d be more successful than I am. But I just am not equipped with that ability [laughs].”

On why he recently called time on his 10-year relationship: “I feel Salvador will always be family, but the intimacy had run its course. It was a beautiful 10 years but it had a beginning, a middle and it had an end. We both kind of felt that if we didn’t wrap it up then, it would feel like a steak that had been on the grill for too long. It would just get tough.”

On dating again and embracing being 40: “I’m fascinated by how many interesting people there are in the world. I know it sounds stupid but I have never done this active dating thing and I’m shocked at the calibre of people I’ve been meeting. I think that has to do with confidence because let’s be frank here, I do not have a six pack, unless it’s a six pack of wine coolers.”
