Hello, it is I again. I have a Ryden theory today and yeah so here it is.
Basically Ryan and Brendon had been “experimenting” with each other probably through AFYCSO and early Pretty. Odd.
Brendon had said that he had “experimented” with guys in an interview. He also said that he had met Sarah during the Pretty. Odd tour so,
Brendon had told Ryan that he was through with the experimenting and he must have been telling Ryan about his crush on Sarah. Ryan was secretly in love with Brendon but he couldn’t say anything because Brendon was just experimenting.
Brendon and Sarah got together and Ryan couldn’t stand to see Brendon so happy with someone that wasn’t him so Ryan had told Jon that he wanted to leave the band. So, Jon either knew about the Ryden business so he didn’t want Ryan to be alone so he left too or Ryan had told Jon that he didn’t want to play the music Brendon and Spencer wanted to so they left that way.
Ryan didn’t like that kind of music really that is why The Young Veins only lasted a year and they only wrote one album.
And when Brendon and Sarah got married and Ryan didn’t get invited he noticed that Brendon was truly over him so he wrote Where I Belong which was about Brendon and Panic!
Brendon hasn’t got in contact with Ryan for all these years because he doesn’t know why Ryan had just left like that and stopped talking to him after all they’d been through together.
Brendon secretly loved Ryan also but he thought Ryan didn’t love him so he moved on, and Ryan didn’t help his theory by leaving with no explanation.
