    Good luck to them! They look very happy together.
    And let the queerty bitchy comments begin…..

  • kinseyfiles

    @alanj: Agreed! and I wish them much happiness as well.

  • Ron Jackson

    Me ME! /raiseshand
    Can I start?

    UGH! Tom could have done SOOOO much better.

  • Tackle

    An Instagramm selfie after all the speculation. I guess they’re saying, look at us, we don’t care…

  • Black Pegasus

    Ugh! disgustingly narcissist and typically gay.

  • fagburn

    Lovely. xx

  • Caleb in SC

    I have to join in on the other people who comment — Why the fascination with with Tom Daley? Give it a rest. It’s tired.

  • KDub

    @Black Pegasus: Just because they had a photo taken of them looking happy on a date? Bitter much?

  • marc sfe

    @Black Pegasus: So the selfie of Secretary Clinton and Meryl Streep is narcissistic as well? Everyone takes selfies so it would appear you’re perhaps jealous? It’s a part of the culture. If you don’t like it, no one is forcing you to look.

  • sfbeast

    Great photo. And good for them. Better than all the hiding and denying so many others do.

  • Kangol

    Good for them. They make a cute couple! I hope they have a real stretch of happiness.

  • dougmc92

    Frankly- I don’t wish them well….for a month, they manipulated the media- both are media whores- even before they were a couple I was saying that…Tom’s the 4th teenager DLB’s seen in the last 5 years- he’s just joing a list/notches on the blet.

  • dougmc92

    belt- wish there was an edit feature :)

  • DerekR

    @Black Pegasus: LMFAO…..queen please. That coming from someone who has a blog like yours is [email protected] hilarious.

  • jimbryant

    I’m all for Tom Daley being happy but couldn’t he have chosen someone who doesn’t look like a cross between Marilyn Manson and Lurch?

  • litper

    Right wing trolls keep changing their names and post nasty anti-gay things!

  • alanj

    @Caleb in SC: you’re going to be very disappointed – there’s enough photos on The Mirror site for another month of articles.

    What I find interesting is the way The Mirror is reporting this, relatively non- judgemental considering how downright homophobic this red top tabloid has been in the past. Mind you it is the online version, the print one could still be scraping around in the gutter.

  • alanj

    @litper: yep, ignore them or challenge them – either way they just morph into a new troll.
    Of course there is a theory that they are plants with the sole aim of getting the numbers up, explaining why they seem to have immunity from the Queerty Comment Policy.

  • jimbryant


    Maybe you are confusing caustic criticism with homophobia. Just because you might be gay it doesn’t mean you should be immune to caustic criticism.

  • xzall

    The right wingers criticizing this couple are probably the same people praising Phil Robertson for his video encouraging men to marry 15 year olds. If people are of age who really cares who they date. How does this affect your life exactly?

  • Bee Gaga

    I’m sorry I find this disgusting. A) Dustin Lance Black has a history of preying on boys under 20. Like you’re damn near 40 sir GET IT TOGETHER. Secondly, Tom is the same age at me and I remember watching Milk in 2008 and seeing Dustin Lance Black accept the Oscar in 2009 and I was like 14-15 at that time. Mr. Black find someone your own age or close to it and stop being such a typical youth obsessed queen

  • FitChicago

    I want to congratulate DLB on the best thing he’s written in years… I wonder how much better it would have been if Ron Nyswaner was brought in to do a wholesale rewrite…

    I have no issue with their relationship or age difference, I just hope they had an honest, open discussion about their sexual history, with DLB’s very public hypocrisy about sexual things coming to mind…

  • Camsean01

    Why Tom, why? You could do so much better.

  • KKaegan

    \@Bee Gaga: Not everyone under 20 wants to date people under 20. I met my partner when I was 20. He was 17 years older than me. I was then completely not interested in the guys around my age whom I thought was often immature (as you have unwittingly proven), unintelligent, had no accomplishment to speak off or life experience to share. Their world is so small(through no fault of theirs of course). Some people just gravitate towards older people.
    Just because TD is the same age as you does not mean both of you have the same needs or same level of maturity. Although a very young man, TD is extremely successful and has many accomplishment outside of diving as well. He comes across as someone who is very focused,hardworking and driven. He has been ‘working’ since 7 years old and I doubt a typical guy around his age is going to interest him. I was not even half of what he is now at 20 years old,or even now come to think of it, and already I could not imagine being in a fulfilling relationship with someone around the same age. All of us are wired differently and our needs are vastly different.

  • SteveDenver

    Adorable and I love ’em both. They both seem to be weathering the storm just fine.

  • Tackle

    @KKaegan: Very well stated, and I completely agree with you. Because when I was 20, I preferred them older also. Not necessarily 20 yrs older, but definately 8-10 yrs older.

  • davincibarnette

    @Black Pegasus: You really couldn’t come up when anything else to say, but you HAD to say something.

  • Stache1

    @dougmc92: You need to be happy for them. Stop being so judgmental. Tom found someone accomplished and rich and Dustin found another teenager that’s more then he could of ever hoped for. Well, at least till he wants another one or this one gets too old.

  • Niall

    @KKaegan: Perfect comment *applauds*

  • Stache1

    @KKaegan: Yes but the vast majority of time it’s a boy just looking to be taken care of by someone accomplished ie wealthy and an older guy who’s just attracted to youth in itself. You can dress it up into all kinds of flowery words but I’m sorry I just don’t see Tom hooking up with an older hard working and accomplished blue collar type. I’ve seen so many of these relationships here in LA. $ is the glue that holds them all together. I don’t really care but just call a spade a spade.

    I have seen several places on the net people wondering who is bttm and who is top in the relasionship btw. TD and DLB. I found the famous pics of DLB from 2006 and there he is both rimming his partner and getting fucked bareback from same man so I think both TD and DLB i versatile as Im sure TD like to get fucked as well.

  • davincibarnette

    @Bonny1986: Do you feel better getting that off your chest now?
