'It differs massively [to former relationships] because I can be myself, there’s not a part of me lying at all.I can be totally and utterly honest with Ian. I had a great relationship with my ex-wife. I know in my heart of hearts that this is probably the rest of my life with Ian.
'I knew deep down when I was lying before in a relationship that it could potentially blow up in my face but with this one it feels like the final piece of the jigsaw.''I can see through the pecs, I can see the abs and everything because he is a solid person but I see him and his heart. The person I love.'
'We’ve been together about a year now. We moved in together after about a month, a month and a half. I know so many people gay, or straight, who have regrets and just wish they’d not missed out on something good. I don’t want to regret something, I wanted to give it a go. It did seem pretty quick but we’re better than we ever have been after living together for a year.We thought, "if it is right to us then b******s to what anyone else thinks."
