“I always wanted to prove to you what a different person I was then when we dated.”
Justin responded: “You were the best. That’s what we did, we laughed so much, like that was so much a part of our connection was that we love funny people, we enjoy laughing at all times.
“I love that we maintained our love because I know for my end it will never go away. I love you always. I am glad that we are able to still have that. I mean that. I’ll always love you.”
Drew said: “We had so much fun but we were more hedonistic. A little more immature. We would get together, we would breakup. It was chaos, it was hella-fun,” prompting Justin to say: “Fun chaos, well yeah, most hedonism is fun.”
