Billy Eichner Shares His Biggest Quarantine Dating Fears

"Is he texting me just because he’s trapped inside?"

Like most of us, Billy Eichner is off the streets.

The Billy on the Street host Zoomed in this week as a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers and discussed queer hookup culture in the time of coronavirus.

“I’m a single gay man, living sequestered by myself,” Eichner told Meyers. “People are so horny.”

“There’s a new type of pandemic dating dilemma, which is, okay, I’m sitting here sexting with this person, but is he texting me just because he’s trapped inside?”

“My biggest fear is, imagine after the pandemic is over and we can all go outside, and you try to hook up with someone, and they say ‘no.’ Imagine that. Here’s my biggest nightmare: Imagine asking someone out when this is over… and they say, ‘no, I think I’m gonna stay in.’ Then you know you’re a lost cause.”
 


“I’m masturbating constantly. I masturbated the other night to Rachel Maddow, you know, kill two birds,” Eichner added before rattling off which governors he finds hotter than Andrew Cuomo. “No one’s talking about how much they want to fuck Brad Little except for me.”

Eichner also shared an update on his gay rom-com for Universal with Nick Stoller and Judd Apatow. Prior to shutdowns, the first day of shooting was scheduled for April 13.

“It’s this big old-fashioned rom-com that I am producing with those guys, and I would be starring in, and I’ve been co-writing with Nick for three years, and we were just about to start, literally, finally, and then this happened,” he lamented.

“I’m so excited about it and I really do hope we get to make it,” he continued. “It’s about a gay male couple who don’t ever date anyone and they very much pride themselves on being single, like a lot of gay people I know, actually, and then they fall for each other unexpectedly, and they have to learn how to navigate that.”
