Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka Cover 'Out' February 2012

Neil Patrick Harris and longtime love David Burtka share a sweet moment on the cover of Out‘s February 2012 issue.

The 38-year-old How I Met Your Mother actor and sweetheart shared the story of how they fell for each other for the magazine’s annual Love Issue. Check it:

Neil, on what attracts him to David: “There’s something kinetic about him and his being. He’s classically sexy, yet he’s very much a boy in his energy. It’s a great dynamic.”

Neil, on the relationship not being perfect: “I don’t want to paint our relationship like we met and it’s been happy family fantastic-ness ever since. What defines a relationship is the work that’s involved to maintain it, and it’s constantly changing. Sometimes I’m deeply in love with David and head-over-heels, and sometimes I question whether it’s going to work out and is meant to be. It’s like a business relationship, as well as a personal one; we have a business together and that’s maintaining our love for one another.”

David, on their relationship: “We have a really great recipe for a wonderful relationship, but we don’t want to be the poster boys for gay relationships. We’re not trying to pretend that we are perfect. We’re just trying — in a good, positive, loving way — to live our lives.”

    What a gorgeous cover of Neil and David! I love it. Please consider having Adam Lambert and his partner Sauli Koskinen on a cover of your magazine sometime soon. They are both gorgeous and Sauli is a model.

    Love them. They have been together longer than most of the other Holywood couple. Everything is beautiful in this article, both pictures ,story. I will, of course buy this this issue of Out . I support equality.

    Eff you Patti, you honestly don’t know anything. Homophobic much?

    John Hopkirk Says:

    This is obscene and should not be shown on a pupular site where children might see it. What would you do if your kid came home and said “I saw two men kissing and holding hands today”? It’s not right and I don’t know I’d be able to explain it to their young minds. We need to stop this before young children start to think it’s the norm.

    PS I am not a homophobe, I just don’t agree with it.

    Are you kidding me? Says:

    @John Hopkirk: Of the countless tasteless photos people put out (anything with Leann Rhimes come to mind) you have a problem with two people in love and in a committed relationship showing intimacy as opposed to sex??!! Parents should monitor their kids on the internet but if they do stumble across this picture I hope they get the same I got: love is love and when it’s right it’s right.
    PS – You are a homophobe because I am sure you would not have a problem with ‘kissing’ if it was a man and a woman.

    I’m gay and even I don’t want to see two people in a magazine like that, gay or straight…. Barf!

    This just looks wrong. I think we are in the Last Days.

    T he following are expressions of acceptance of homosexual marriages by some of the “moral” voices of our land. As you read them consider the words of Jesus Christ when describing the last days.

    “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.” (Lk. 17:28-30)

    Some comments really make me laugh!
    What if children saw two men holding hands or even kissing? Seriously? Moehahahaha!
    I’m from Belgium, gays can marry here since 2003, they can adopt and now we have a gay prime minister and that wasn’t even an issue.
    Love is love: get over it, simpletons!

    Neil almost looks annoyed. seems very hard edge and stone faced. Where as David is much softer looking in the picture. I was really looking forward to seeing them together and now I’m disappointed.

    Such a sad waste to women Neil—do have any idea how many women want you???

    Mlllllle Says:

    I don’t give a damn about them being gay.
    All I can remember when I look at NPH, is his bad acting, and most of all, tjhe way he was rude with “Victor Newman” from the young and the restless.
    He wanted him so badly to do a cameo, that he insulted him in public when he refuses…..but the man was sick, that’s why he says no.
    But I still don’t know why Blondie is rude.

    @Kari: We have a huge investigation going on against priests from the catholic churche who abused children and were protected by their superiors.
    The extent of the abuse all over Europe (and also in the United States) is more than shocking and sickening.
    Sexual frustration and profound religious behaviour seem like a match made in heaven…

    @John Hopkirk: but it’s normal that two men are kissing… It’s nothing wrong! I would tell my kid that it’s ok… because it is! u fall in love with human being and it doesn’t matter if it’s girl or boy…

    Hey Kari, why don’t you shut the eff up? K thanks. And I’m not a dumb@ss, I know how to press the thumbs down button for you :)

    Also God does not judge people, however I think he can make an exceptional for such a horrible like yourself.
