And for those wondering why Briana hasn’t shared photos of him on Instagram, the Florida resident said she’s trying to do things differently this time around.
“I just feel like he knows who I am and he accepts what comes with me, but it’s still not fair to just throw him to the wolves like I did with [my ex] John,” she explained. “I think that was the wrong thing that I did in my past relationships. I put it all out there and sometimes, certain people can’t handle it or they’re not ready for it. I have to respect his wishes and his decisions, and he’s OK with people knowing about us, but he’d rather keep some stuff private, and I understand and I get it.”
Briana added, “I don’t feel like I need to flaunt my relationship on Instagram to let people know that I’m in one. I know that I’m in one and he knows he’s in one and I think that’s all that really matters.”
Throughout their private relationship, Javi, who is a father of two, has had the chance to meet Briana’s two daughters. And instead of introducing themselves as a “boyfriend” or “girlfriend,” the pair agreed to call each other “friends” in front of their children. As Briana explained, “We’re trying to keep that title away from the kids until we’ve established what’s going on between both of us.”
