You’ve done FHM a long time ago. Why do this again—and why only now?
I was in a long-term relationship so some decisions, like posing in a men’s magazine, needed to be decided by the two of us—otherwise it meant war! Now I’m single for almost a year already, enjoying life! I can do things I wasn’t able to do when I was in a relationship.
What kind of things?
I’m focused on being healthy and fit. I go to the gym five times a week. I go out of town with friends, which I wasn’t able to do before. And I’m preparing myself for a new job soon.
Does that mean FHM only comes to mind when you’re single and jobless? You’re breaking our hearts.
Ha ha! Well, not really! It depends on one’s partner and family. It’s easy to say yes to FHM if there’s no one violently reacting to it!
Do you believe a man has a right to set limitations on his girlfriend?
A few limitations are okay. But a relationship is not created by rules. It’s a matter of trust.
