"Everyone thinking I'm taken when I'm just over here like hi I'm single AF," she tweeted.

Speculation that she and Beaumon were dating began a few months ago, after the two were spotted around town and attending several Hollywood events together.

But according to Winter, there's a good reason the two are always together: they've been friends for a decade!

"We've been best friends for 10 years. We're not dating," Winter told ET last month. "We see each other every day but no, we're like literally best friends and have been for 10 years."

"I'm single, but I'm open to meeting anybody. I've just kind like been single for a little while now," she added. "I've enjoyed it and if something happens, it happens."

Winter and her last boyfriend, Laurent Claude Gaudette, split in June after more than two years of dating, but she's got plenty to keep her distracted from her recent breakup.

The Modern Family star just adopted a new puppy.

"Welcome to the family," she posted to Instagram last Saturday, along with a pic of herself and her new pup.
