Forgive us, but: Lance Bass was totally in sync with his new boyfriend the instant he saw him.

And where did this viewing take place? 35,000 miles up in the air.

“He was asleep in the back of the plane on the way over,” the former ‘N Sync star said Pedro Andrade, who was also en route to Vienna for the May 28 Life Ball.

“I was like, ‘He’s really cute,'” Bass told People at Monday’s New York premiere of the movie Hairspray. (The singer will appear in the Broadway version of the long-running musical starting on Aug. 14.)

At the time Andrade was working at the Austrian event as a model for Heatherette. And now he joins Tyler Atkins as a new boyfriend making celebrity news.

“It’s so fresh and new,” Bass said about the relationship. “The good thing is learning everything about him. He’s really great… amazing.”

Bass said that it took some time to get over his break-up with Reichen Lehmkuhl last December — but he’s enjoying the dating life. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been able to date, so it’s nice to go out and get to know people and not jump into a relationship right away, which I usually do.”

Hey, that does work out sometimes, Lance. Just look at Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.
