I’m only going to answer this once, just because I keep getting asked. I don’t think I’m ready to be in a relationship right now; I’ve come to realize that. I have a lot of s**t I need to work out. But I love him with all my heart, and I always want him in my life. He’s one of my best friends, so yeah.

I’m bi. I mean, I made it pretty clear when I announced my relationship in 2017. I probably wouldn’t date another guy again. I don’t see that happening. I don’t think I have a particular reason. It’s just like I don’t see it happening. I don’t necessarily want it. I knew that going into my first relationship, like, this is going to be the only guy I date. I just don’t see it, you know?
