“Laverne is in love again. It feels amazing. Love is an incredible thing. It’s this chemical thing that’s awesome. He’s a great guy. I didn’t expect it. I thought he would just be this hot dude I would be hanging out with, and then it just happened. We’ve been hanging out for six months. It went slowly. The word love just happened around November, December.”
She informed the audience that the couple had met on Tinder, but they proceeded with caution in their relationship. They met six months before the end of 2021 but became an official couple in November/December.
