Tom Daley on first boyfriend: “It really was love at first sight. I’d never felt like anything like it before”
Tom Daley isn’t publicly confirming that Dustin Lance Black is the man in his life but he’s not denying it either.
In an interview to air this weekend with ITV’s Jonathan Ross, the 19-year-old Olympic swimmer opens up about what he says is his first romantic relationship with another man.
“It really was love at first sight, I’d never felt like anything like it before. We were at a party and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night.
“I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first. I made the first move, I typed ‘call me’ in his notes with a smiley face on this phone and the next day he texted.
“He makes me feel safe and happy, right now I couldn’t be happier.
“I’d never felt the feeling of love, it happened so quickly, I was completely overwhelmed by it to the point I can’t get him out of my head all the time. I’ve never had it before where I love someone and they love me just as much.”
There have been a lot of bitches out there harping on the age difference between Daley and Black (he’s 39) and it seems like bitter grapes to me. I mean, so WHAT? Just think about the first time you ever really fell in love and how magical and special that initial period of time was.
Tom is in that now and I for one am happy for him!
