Joany, who is a mother of a daughter, shares in her sign-up video that “so much to give and offer” and loves being with someone. She has not yet managed to find a nice man on her own because, according to Joany, nowadays all communication is via the telephone. “I’m really old-fashioned in that regard,” she says.
The single lady is looking for a sporty man who looks well-groomed, has dark hair and is social. Well, socially, 41-year-old Jeroen is. Although the click is there immediately, Joany breaks down a bit when they have an in-depth conversation about their previous relationships. Just like Joany, Jeroen is already a father. That in itself is not a problem, but he has four children. With three different women.
“I don’t see all four children. That just happened and yes… I also have to think about myself and enjoy myself. I think it’s good. And when they come, they will come naturally. It may sound harsh, but it is no different.”
When Joany withdraws moments later and texts her sister about the date, the topic comes up again. “He doesn’t sit still, dammit,” her sister Kelly replies when Joany sends in that he has four children with three different women.
Whether Joany and Jeroen go for number five? Their date will be continued on Friday. Long live the love is every working day at 6.55 pm on SBS6. Watch the episode here or at Videoland.
