Neil&David #5: Because Neil is David's forever-protector, and he's happiest when he's happy!



Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka
Appreciation Thread


"I'm not a crazy partyer. I don't stay up and rent private jets and go on yachts and whoop it up in Miami.
I found a guy that I'm head over heels for and we have similar interests and we spend our time together."

Quotes

"Because I fell in love, and I want it to matter."

Are you thinking about marriage?
Well, I think if and when we do, we'd probably announce it after the fact as opposed to making the big announcement
that it was going to happen.
But it's important to you?
Yeah. We both wear rings, and I'm giddy when I see all the pictures of people so happy standing there, confirming the
love they wish they could have expressed for a long time.


"I think it's a matter of your abilities and how you carry yourself - I don't behave any differently toward you right
now than when I am with David in our apartment, watching American Idol. OK, So You Think You Can Dance. [laughs]"


You and your partner David Burtka have been together for more than four years now -- any chance you'll
have kids one day?

It'll be five years in April. I don't know -- that would be jumping the gun to make any big announcement about it.
I think it'd be fun to get married before you had babies. We had to take a couple steps back recently [with the
banning of gay marriage in California] ... so we'll see. But I've answered it before in the "I think we'd both be
good dads" kind of way, which sort of seems like it's a lead-on to something that's not happening. So instead, this
is a better response: David is an extraordinary man. I should be so lucky.


You and David have been together for 4 1/2 years. When you first started dating you were out personally
but not professionally, right? Did that create some early relationship tension?

No. If anything, it probably gave us more exclusive time together because we weren't out in public places. We'd have
dinner and then hang out. But he has had lots of interesting chapters as well. His first boyfriend - they had twins
together. So they were involved in the whole surrogate/making babies/two dads-with-babies-in-strollers thing, so he's
lived with scrutiny in many ways that I haven't.


But dating someone whose every trip to the airport is now covered on blogs must have some distinct challenges.
Well, there has been one other negative element about being out publicly as a couple. He and I are both actors, and I've
been trying to be protective of him so that his identity wasn't linked so much to mine so that he could succeed on his
own. But by being so, it creates its own strange dynamic. Because if we walk hand-in-hand down the red carpet together,
then he's known as being linked to me. But if I walk down the red carpet and he goes ahead of me, then it looks like
we're not proud of being with each other. So that's been tricky. It requires a lot of communications between us.


Did you do anything to hide your sexuality from the network of the executives on How I Met Your Mother?
I didn't release a statement to them, but at the first How I Met Your Mother barbecue I brought David. I feel like
it's important to be proud of who you are, so I didn't feel like, "I should bring my friend Stephanie to this barbecue, or
I'll lose my job." Thankfully I live in a time where I don't have to worry about that.

I don't think so. Neils shirt is a very light blue and Davids is white. They just look the same on that one picture. That would have been so cute though..
On second thought, Neils shirt looked very white at the trevor project angel food thing.. Argh it's so hard to tell.

Yeah, I think Neil's is slightly off-white and David's is white-white:

David looks good all the time, but I prefer him (and everybody in the world ever) without any kind of beard

I know, I know, you have a thing for beards. But I love them so much I can't stand it.
