before you actually read more about phan and old tweets and stuff and basically formed a 100% certain opinion on them being together, was there something that made you doubt or made you think more about them maybe not being together?
When I first started watching Dan in 2012, I had no awareness of Phil beyond being Dan’s roommate, and I didn’t watch his videos. Dan seemed like your typical homophobic early 20s white dude and I took that at face value and didn’t particularly read more into it.
I was binge watching Vidcon vlogs in 2015 (a few weeks to a month or so after Vidcon) and I must have seen them in one of the vlogs. It didn’t stick in my memory enough for me to actually remember what I watched, but I had a dream about them. I woke up that morning and decide to search them out and see what they were actually up to. Pretty much from that week on I was immersed, I found gurugossiper and thephandirectory within the same day.
To be honest, never having been a casual viewer of them both, I’m not actually sure how to answer that.
