In the interview, Splinter says he liked “those guys with sculpted heads.” But Splinter also loves the fragile kind. “I recently saw a beautiful dancer walking. I was just writing my story for a book week gift for young people and then I see it in front of me. I love to make someone absolutely perfect and imagine a story around them. I feel like you disappear into quicksand without suffocating.”
Moreover, the presenter says that he quickly falls in love. “Sometimes on several guys at the same time. And also regularly on fools who think they’re too handsome. Somehow I find that interesting,” says Splinter. Broad public interest is important to Splinter. It doesn’t necessarily mean that someone has to read a book every day. “But I’ve dated someone who knows nothing about politics, it just doesn’t work for me.”
Splinter hasn’t had long relationships yet, because he says he “can’t.” “If someone stays the night and then wants to make follow-up appointments right away, it feels like an octopus is jumping on me. It makes me very anxious. Maybe a two-man relationship would suit me better. I don’t know if I can handle it, but it seems like a lot of fun.”
