Colton Haynes

We’ve been burned before with wishful thinking. Remember the hot shirtless jogger a few weeks ago who turned out to be an anti-gay protester? So yeah, having a crush, and wanting someone to bat cleanup for our team, isn’t always the reality. So when Teen Wolf/Arrow hottie Colton Haynes implied this weekend on his Tumblr account that he may be — or was — gay … well, you’ll forgive us if we don’t send out the wedding invitations quite yet. (Though we could! Yea, marriage equality!)

The thing is, since the dustup began (basically, some troll on Tumblr suggested Haynes had a “secret” gay past and the actor replied, “Was it a secret? Let’s all just enjoy life and have no regrets”) no other word has come out about it. Could Haynes be teasing his fans, the way Frasier teased us about Daphne and Niles for years? Though come to think of it, Daphne and Niles eventually did hook up.

Look, Haynes will confirm or deny eventually, but until then, let’s just admire the 27-year-old actor’s physique (plug: Friday is Dallas Voice’s annual Body Issue!) and say it’s cool either way … but if you are gay, Colton, the toaster oven is on its way…
