Sanne Hans recognizes this. She used to be bullied with her stutter and wrote a song about it as Miss Montreal. “When I play that live for fifteen-year-olds, it’s like seeing myself standing – times ten thousand. Girls who literally sing along to the lyrics. That’s what I really like about our work: that you can help people with something you make.”
Two at once
When it comes to love a little later, Splinter says that he falls in love rather quickly. “Sometimes on several guys at the same time. And also regularly on acorns who consider themselves very handsome. Somehow I like that.” But above all he is looking for someone who will take him on an adventure. “He doesn’t necessarily have to read a book every day, but I think a broad general interest is important.”
“I can’t have long relationships,” says Splinter. “If someone stays the night and then wants to make follow-up appointments right away, it feels like an octopus jumping on me. I’m so fed up with that. Maybe a relationship with two men would suit me better. I don’t know if I could handle it, but it seems like a lot of fun.”

wish for children
Splinter sees no children in his near future, neither does Sanne. “I don’t have ramshackle ovaries and I don’t think I ever will. I’m a very nice aunt, that’s worth a lot too. In addition, my boyfriend and I want to largely live on a boat within the next few years. I don’t think that’s ideal with children.”
She continues: “We want to travel the world. My stepfather died two years ago, he was not yet sixty. This made me realize once again that I don’t want to enjoy my free time until I already have back pain and knee pain.”
