You will either love or loathe the story of how Jim Parsons met his partner

The story of how Jim Parsons met his partner Todd Speiwak is so cute you’re going to either love it or throw up in the nearest bucket, depending on your tolerance for adorableness. Just so you’re warned.

The Big Bang Theory star sat down with James Lipton for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio to talk about his life and his work so far.

He was asked about what coming out meant to him in the public eye.

‘I never had a coming out piece, I just didn’t mention it,’ Jim said.

‘I took Todd with me to events…and then finally one day while working on Harvey I did a piece with Patrick Healy for The New York Times and he just point-blank asked, "Was working on The Normal Heart meaningful to you as a gay man?"

‘And I was like, "Well, yeah. Yeah". And what a wonderful…I can’t tell you what a wonderful thing that was, what a gift he gave me with one question. It was suddenly out there and official.’

And then, he was asked how he met his partner Todd who he has been with since 2002.

It turns out it was a blind date at a karaoke bar.

‘I hate karaoke. Oh my god do I hate–Tell them what song you sang,’ Jim said to Todd.

‘I Found Someone.’
