Nothing about sex, nothing sexual. But when I first saw him, I stopped breathing. Emotion was growing within six months, it was such a romantic time. During the first meeting I said, “I’m gonna marry this guy”. And apparently he thought the same way, only told me this later,” says Ricky about meeting and first meeting.

I had no time to open the doors to a new relationship, and I’m not just talking about romantic.
