So let’s pretend my love of The Hunger Games and Peeta “Fucking” Mellark played no role in making Josh my new imaginary boyfriend. Here are the 3 reasons Josh should be at the top of everyone’s delusional hall pass list:
1.) He’s a success story. Josh has been acting since he was a little kid and is still at it. That shows not only dedication but perseverance. Also, he managed to grow up in the spotlight without succumbing to it’s pressures. There’s something to be said about a man with staying power.
2.) He’s a sensitive guy. Josh is one of those sweet boy next door types who make the ultimate partners in life. If you want a bad boy, help yourself. I’d much rather go home to a kind and understanding person who treats me like I’m a special snowflake and respects me as a person. Doesn’t Josh just seem like the type who will ask you how your day was while he cooks you dinner because he got home from work first and, fuck stereotypes, gosh darn it, you guys are in this relationship thing together?! He also definitely looks like the kind of dude who makes eye contact during sex and would totally be into going down on you….. I might be projecting a little.
3.) He’s a free spirit who speaks up for his beliefs. Josh has always been a vocal advocate for the LGBT community. When asked whether he was gay his response was, “Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person.” He also added, “I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.” I find it so refreshing and enlightened of him to not be held back by society’s restrictions on sexuality. It somehow makes me want him harder.
CLOSING ARGUMENT: Josh is a beautiful soul with sad puppy dog eyes. What’s not to like here? When given the choice, always go with the good guy.
