Both Connor and Troye do such a good job with comedy. I just said on Troye's thread: I wish they would do funny skits together. "A Bit of Troye and Connor"

really enjoyed the new video. though tbh i don't find his videos funnier or more special than everyone else, a big part of connor's charm is his earnestness and just how damn likeable he is. and he really was loveable in this video :love2: he doesn't need to go OTT with his skits or do anything that's gone through a zillion filters plus breathy dubbing for his charm to show through but i appreciate the effort that he puts into those other videos too lol.

i will admit that when the dress shoes came to the door i was like dress shoes!!!

since troye went to an afterparty i wonder what connor did? i'm still finding their siamese act this year so stinking cute <3

I just can't get over the fact that Connor left playlist early without any "real" reason; by now surely Troye has his own set of keys and can easily get himself in Connor's house.

Connor strength is his comedy sketches and I hope he continue to focus in producing them; however viewers should also give him a chance to let him experiment with other styles for his own self development in filming.

Honestly, when he does his skits; I find his videos funnier, better edited and more enjoyable than most of the popular youtubers.

maybe i just don't find skits from youtubers all that funny at all as i personally do find specific challenge videos funnier (i nearly bust a gut laughing at the whisper challenge that troye, connor, louise, tyler and joe did). i definitely agree that connor's videos are generally more enjoyable for me to watch though, regardless!

Squishy wrote:$1 to charity? Where does the other $18 go to? I mean, way to take advantage of your fans. For crying out loud, you can get Starbucks coffee at the stores for like $8.50. Someone should ask him what makes this coffee worth $19. Really pisses me off to see these people take advantage of their teenage girl fanbase. They love selling fluff products (no real content or merit) just to make themselves a pile of cash.
it's $20 for a bag, so i'd already accounted for the $1. honestly don't know about where the $19 will go, maybe to LA coffee club.

sorry for double posting, but connor's latest video is quite possibly my favourite skit of his. :-) it's so enjoyable to watch (and relatable, tbh), and it was especially funny to watch him relive his previous dates. that was horrifyingly enjoyable.

i'm getting really behind on this thread btw

So what happened to those who were saying Connor would rather not acknowledge to his homosexuality and only came out to get it out of the way? Hmmm?

At the same time, did anyone really expect him to dress up as a girl for his "date"? I just like the casual approach he's taken to portraying his sexuality and love life in his videos.

^i think people meant it more like he won't be basing his content around his sexuality.

Nah, they didn't. And even so, he literally just made a video based on what we're to believe is his dating history. His videos don't have to be GAY GAY HOMO GAY I LIKE BOYS to still acknowledge that he is an out gay man.

Perhaps Connor is concerned about being pigeonholed like gay people in the industry usually are.

For example, It seems almost every article about Troye has to mention that he is gay; so he is like "The Gay Singer". You know everyone is going to compare him to Sam Smith; ever though his music is more like Portishead meets Peter Gabriel.

Actually July111 is right, a lot of people were saying that he won't be basing his content around his sexuality; since he did say that he doesn't want being Gay to define him. Even though he came out he didn't want to be seen any differently, he still wanted to be known as Connor, not many people were saying that the only reason Connor came out was to get it over and done with; some people did but not the large majority. And I know that this recent video was based around his sexuality but that doesn't mean that all of his videos will be, this video was about feeling happy within himself, it's showing that he's 'dating himself' (not literally,) but he finally knows who he is and feels comfortable with how life is going. And also I think that he does acknowledge his sexuality (i know it's minimal) but he doesn't want to become a 'gay role model' or anything like that-because he said that he doesn't want his sexuality to define him and it seems to me that he just wants to go about you tube and playlist etc how he always did. Just because he is gay doesn't mean that he automatically has to join the LGBT team and become known for being gay, when Connor's right; it isn't what defines him, it's only a small part of him.

Then you two and I must be referring to two different groups of people, because I actually was talking about a select few who literally made comments about how Connor only came out to get it out of the way and never make reference to it in videos, despite the fact that he has quite a few times already. You're refuting points I didn't make.

Sometimes written words can be quite tricky; I read your initial comment and I guess because I'm used to reading your post I had a feeling you were "talking" about third parties that had made such remarks and you were jesting them. I guess some readers might take it as you were "generalising" and then starts to add/minus "ingredients" along the way to make points. (Hell am I even writing this clear enough to be understood :lol: )

lol That tends to happen. Maybe I should've clarified that I was referring to 1 or 2 distinct users, but being direct and being shady don't really mix. One of my constant internal battles.

I liked the date video. It was a skit, but there was still his hipster-y vibe to it. It wasn't overbearing, but still there. I like it c:
Sorry if I do something wrong, still new to this site. Feel free to correct me. :)

He's apparently in Melbourne, but I don't think Connor is with him, unfortunately..

Apologies for the double post but it looks like Connor will be going to Amplify. Not gonna lie, if they come to Adelaide and have a decent line-up, I might actually go to this. Could be fun.

The two of them on tour together, how interesting haha! (with a bunch of others probably, but still, the amount of time they are spending with each other is amazing.. a lot of people live in the same city as their boyfriend and they don't see each other that often)

This is my first post (other than the mandatory two intro posts) so my apologies for not knowing exactly what I am doing. Anyway, hopefully they flew to Melbourne together but will have to rely on random fans taking pictures to verify one way or the other until the AmplyfyLive event, whatever that is. I had seen the picture with the guy in the white shirt yesterday but assumed it was taken in Los Angeles before Troye (or maybe both) flew to Australia since it was taken too early for him (them?) to have landed in Australia. The only airport picture that I have seen was when Troye met up with his mom and Tyde presumably at LAX.

While I live in the US I have family friends in Melbourne. Maybe now would be a good time to go visit them. ;)

Reminded me of "someone" that moved from one city to another just to be with that special person ;)

i can't quite tell if connor is in LA or in australia with troye but if he's seriously followed troye to australia (again), i honestly don't see how anyone can still believe that they're not dating.

(and if he's not in australia, i'm certainly most pleased that he will be seeing troye very soon at amplify live. i really do love them together and i reeeeallly wanna know what all the cryptic tweets connor has been tweeting allude to)
