a new interview with USA Weekend magazine,
the 20-year-old Colfer announced he's looking for love.
“I have no problem talking about my

“I would love to be in a
relationship, but I don't have any offers! Truly! Fans, yes.

“One of the nicest things I've heard
so far is how powerful it is to see a positive portrayal of a gay
teenager on television,” Colfer said. “I get so many fan letters
from people telling me their own coming-out stories. It's so funny:
