Kurt to have less glee without love

Glee's Kurt, played by Chris Colfer, may have to wait for love

Glee character Kurt could be in for more heartbreak - as he may have to wait for the arrival of his new boyfriend.

Creator Ryan Murphy excited fans of the TV show when it was revealed that he was planning to write in a boyfriend for camp, football-playing tenor Kurt in the new series.

But actor Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel, told Entertainment Weekly.com: "Actually, I've heard that they might be leaning towards another storyline more which would delay (Kurt getting a boyfriend)."

Meanwhile, it has been revealed in the New York Post that singer Chord Overstreet will be joining Glee as Sam, an athlete who starts out as Finn's protege.

But the student quickly becomes the teacher and ends up as choir and football hunk Finn's main rival - both on the field and for lead vocals in the choir.

Rumours quickly began that the character of Sam could be Kurt's prospective new love interest.

But Chris is not bothered that the introduction of a boyfriend is on hold, calling the alternate plot line "provocative."

Pressed to name someone he'd like to be involved in with a romantic storyline on-screen, he named Meryl Streep.

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
