Naya Rivera, who plays lesbian student Santana on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, says she's hoping for romance next season for her closeted character.

The 24-year-old Rivera told The New York Post that playing gay has its advantages.

“I got proposed to by women twice today at a Meet & Greet,” she said with a laugh. “And at the last tour stop, I got two bouquets of roses. It's so sweet. Getting hit on by both genders is such a champagne problem.”

And when asked about the show's third season, Rivera said she would like to see Santana in love.

“I'd like to see her explore her sexuality more – maybe with people aside from Brittany,” Rivera told the paper. “I know everyone wants them together, but I think [writer] Brad Falchuk put it best when he said that this is about Santana's journey and not so much about her with Brittany. I'd love to see her get a girlfriend and maybe soften up a bit as a result.”
