Chrissy Metz is once again proving the age-old saying to be true: “It all goes down in the DMs.”
“I know, cute, right?” said Metz, 38. “As the kids say, ‘He slid into the DMs.’ “
“I get thankfully a lot of messages and I don’t always get to see them all,” Metz explained. “He had messaged a couple of times, very sweet but not obnoxious or weird. And then I was like, ‘Let me see if he’s cute. Oh, he’s cute! Okay, I guess I can respond.’ But I waited a little bit because you can’t be an eager beaver. And then I responded, and then we just sort of hit it off.”
“It’s a very new relationship. It’s very exciting,” Metz told Williams, 54.

“That’s a lot of pressure to put on someone!” Metz told Williams “It’s like work still, so I feel like I can’t be 100 percent there — not that he wouldn’t support that, I’m sure he’d be very excited.”
“We’ll see,” she teased. “I can barely get it together.”
“Maybe, if it’s the right person,” Metz said. “I love love. I’m probably the most romantic, gushy, lovey person.”
