Andy Cohen has been unlucky so far when it comes to finding dates online. The TV personality revealed that he gets kicked off one particular site because the system flags him as an impostor.
Cohen appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where he revealed that he is single and ready to mingle. He also got candid about his attempts to find a match on dating sites.
The Bravo TV personality admitted that his efforts have been futile so far, because the system always kicks him out for being an impostor. Cohen revealed that he is on Tinder and on one gay dating site that kicks him out because of his profile picture.
"There is a gay dating app that I'm on that I keep getting kicked off of because they think I'm impersonating Andy Cohen. And they're like, 'Your photos don't meet our guidelines.' I'm like, 'No, it is me!'" Cohen tells DeGeneres in the video below.
The Watch What Happens Live host did not name the app on television. He revealed its name afterward in a tweet.

DeGeneres recalled that Cohen was in a relationship the last time he was on her show and now he is single. The 49-year-old TV host said that living the single life has been good and admitted that he is just thankful to be alive.
"You know what, every day I'm alive is a great thing. Yea it's fun," Cohen says when asked if being single is a good thing.
However, DeGeneres reminded Cohen that he had a chance encounter with a prospective suitor recently. She mentioned the young audience member who asked him out on a date. On Sunday's episode of Cohen's show Watch What Happens Live an unnamed man stood up and bravely asked to be his date while on air.
Cohen politely declined because the man was barely 25 years old although he found the gesture "sweet." DeGeneres agreed that it was sweet and quipped that the viewer was indeed too young. Regardless, Cohen joked that he would swipe right for the show's guest DJ Pauly D.
In the same interview, Cohen talked about the upcoming season of Love Connection. He returns to host the second season, which premieres on May 29.
"I feel like every episode had a happy ending. And I have high hopes," Cohen says of the Fox dating game show.
