YOU HAVE TO TALK TO AN OTHER DAD (PROBABLY ROBERT) FOR JOSEPH’S GOOD ENDING
Confirmed by Joseph’s writer here
WHY I THINK IT”S ROBERT
On Joseph’s boat, there’s a bed side picture of all the dads. Robert is of course in this photo, but your dadsona is surprised to see that he’s actually smiling, AND he’s wearing non other than Joseph’s sweater.
At the end of the Joseph romance, Robert doesn’t even want to talk to you, not like the other dads.
That’s it. He doesn’t talk to you like the others. He runs off. YOU can’t get say anything to him.
Robert is also the one who tells you how Joseph’s wife is cheating on him, when you first meet him at a bar. (Although he doesn’t tell you that’s Joseph’s wife)
Robert is afraid of emotional intimacy in his own romance.
Robert is really good friends with Mary, he knows they’re both miserable.
You may also have to become friends with Mary to separate the two. Best way to do that is to NOT GO AFTER JOSEPH FIRST.
(I think, Robert is actually in love with Joseph, and vice versa, but Joseph is trying too hard to be “the perfect role model/human” that he puts all his time into his kids and wife and local church. Even if he’s not happy with his life. Although this last part is just fan theory)
