hey! I watched the gang gets a new member today bc of your post and I was wondering if you could go into more detail abt why you think Dennis is in love with schmitty? thanks ily
i figure that’s why he’s so emotional about schmitty. it’s like him and maureen, being around schmitty rekindled some of those elusive Feelings in dennis. he’s also the one who tries to mke up with schmitty, and include him in the gang in with their weird shamrock rings first, even fi he can’t finish speaking either time because he’s all emotional. i mean when have we seen dennis cry over anyone besides himself?
sure, i think he has feelings for mac, too, but he sees mac every single day of his life, so he’s pretty used to that. besides, dennis probably idolized the hell out of schmitty (especially bc they hadn’t seen him in so long and he built schmitty up in his head, y’know, what with that bpd idolization/devaluation thing) and that got all mixed up with romantic feelings (in that sense i’d say both mac and dennis have trouble differentiating between admiration/idolization and romantic attraction, although you can def experience both at the same time) and then he split on schmitty when he didn’t return the intensity of his (and the rest of the gang’s) feelings.
violà! ;) ilu too
