I think I might be kind of gay...

Kind of? Are you gay or not? 😆

Like, I like dudes in a romantic way, but I'm not really into them, you know, sexually.
Tanner
Tanner
Is that a thing?
Brodie
Brodie
idk. I mean, it must be a thing if that's what I am.
Brodie
Brodie
Am I weird?
Tanner
Tanner
So what if you are? I mean, you've always been weird. Remember when you tried to scare the other team with the haka?
Brodie
Brodie
What's wrong with that?
Tanner
Tanner
Bro, have you ever seen that done for American football?
Brodie
Brodie
But did it work? 😏
Tanner
Tanner
😔 Yes.
Brodie
Brodie
Anyway, you're not gonna start, u know, judging me, are u?
Brodie
Brodie
For being kinda gay and all that.

You've been my friend for, like, how many years? I've always got your back, bro.

Your parents love you!

Come on, I'm just having fun. You need to lighten up.

Plus, you should come out to your parents. I know them. They'll accept you, and if they don't, I'll be there for you. Cry on my shoulder or some shit like that.

I wanna date you and shit, too.

Would you really want to date someone like me? I feel like there's smth wrong with me.
Tanner
Tanner
Nothing's wrong with you. You're the coolest person I know. I'd spend the rest of my life without getting laid if it meant I could be together with you. I love hanging out with you and working out with you. Hell, you don't even need to work out, 'cause you always lift my spirits, bro.
