    Salut Shay, Ce n'est pas un peu angoissant, de voir tout ce monde qui souhaite en savoir plus sur toi, par rapport à des choses plutôt personnelle (comme ta sexualité etc)? Et en plus, parfois même en français!! ;) It's not alarming? All this people which wants to know everything about you? Private Things (sexuality etc.)! Sometimes in French! ;) Good Job and good luck!
