In an interview with the UK's Jonathan
Ross broadcast last week, Daley explained that it was “love at
first sight” for him.
“I'd never felt like anything like it
before,” Daley said. “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 typed 'call me' in his notes with a smiley face on his
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.”
