Did you ever think in a million years that one day you’d look at the youngest Jonas Brother and think, “Hmm, I could see myself wanting to kiss that face”? Now that the young JoBro is age-appropriate (22, of course! What do we look like?), there are questions that need answering. When did the littlest guy become … such a … man?

Luckily, thanks to a Reddit AMA, we now know everything we ever wanted to know about the baby Jonas — who describes himself as “a cigar enthusiast, golfer, tuna fish sandwich artist, uncle, diabetic, snowboarder, singer, songwriter, actor, and recovering teen star” — specifically the forgotten details of that promise ring he was basically required to wear. Here, he explains:

There was a person in the church who at one point demanded that all the kids in the youth group put these purity rings on and make this commitment, so without a full understanding of what we were stepping into, we all made this commitment.

But as you do, you grow up, you live life, you gain some world perspective and you develop your own views and opinions as it relates to faith, as it relates to sex, and everything that falls under the bounds of what your parents teach you and what comes from religion and you get to make your own choices.

So I started making my own choices, fell in love with somebody, made the choice to have sex with them, and from that point on it was about me being a man and being okay with my choices. And then it related to my art and people’s view of me and the public eye.

Hey, Nick Jonas, one more thing: Are you single? Asking for a friend.
