Regarding the reason why she chose her long-term romantic relationship as a secret, Summer honestly shared, “If I talk about my long-term relationship with my ex in the first meeting with someone else, the other person may think ‘She hasn’t forgotten that person yet’. In fact, I’ve met many people who are similar to my ex-boyfriend”.
