Less than a week after opening up about his sexuality in a personal Youtube video, Olympian Tom Daley is excited to tell the world about his new boyfriend.

On an episode of U.K.’s “Jonathan Ross Show” set to air on Saturday, Daley, 19, tells Ross about meeting his beau, who is rumored to be “Milk” screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

“I’d never felt anything like it before,” he said (via E! News). “We were at a party and I hadn’t even spoken to him all night. I didn’t know what to do or if he was gay at first.”

After they were introduced, Daley, 39, gave Black his phone number, typing “call me” in the notes on his phone, and he received a text from him the very next day.

As for why he won’t confirm the identity of his new boyfriend, the athlete says he likes their relationship the way it is.

“At the moment, I wouldn’t like anything to change,” he added (via E!). “I hope it doesn’t get ruined by the media attention. Everyone has been so supportive and I hope it continues that way.”

After the story blew up when Daley’s coming out video went viral, Black winkingly tweeted:
