I love you.”

He wanted to send it from his personal account, but by mistake, he sent it from the group’s account. Kristin was perplexed on getting it. Talking about the DM, the former football player said:

It was a bold one,”

“It was a shot in the dark.”

He did not expect a reply and was stunned to get one. He added:

We just clicked.”
