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