This is a disaster! I think it’s because I’ve never known how to flirt. Yes, I sing to love I already conquered her, but what do I do? Do I sing to flirt? No! It’s just that, despite everything, I’m very shy. Besides, I’ve become a bit demanding. I don’t know exactly what I want, but I do know what I don’t want”.
The one who one day was a heartbreaker for an entire generation has confessed that he has used apps to flirt without success: “I admit that I have tried those apps, but no way! I have not had any luck.
