34 Reasons It’s A True Tragedy Tom Daley Isn’t Gay

The British diver tells Mirror Online that he loves his gay fans but isn’t gay himself. UPDATE: Tom announced he has a boyfriend. But here’s a bunch of pictures of him anyway…

1. Because Tom and literally any man would make an adorable, beautiful couple.

Especially fellow British diver Jack Laugher, because they are, like, actually perfect.

3. Because he’s too good at thrusting in the water with other guys for this skill to go to waste.

4. And because he’s too good at dancing on the beach with other guys to let THAT skill go to waste.

5. Because he looks too good in this underwear ad for women to have him all by themselves.

6. Because his cat probably wants it that way, to be honest.

(You can see it in her eyes.)

12. Because his selfie game is so strong that most women probably would not even know what to do with him.

I mean, come on.

24. And he and every other man look perfect together.

25. And they probably would be super happy together and make adorable babies.*

*I know, I know, but can you imagine?

26. Because this is how he showers and, I guess it’s not related, but still.

27. Because he’s just adorable and I want it to be this way.

28. Because of this irrelevant (but very important) visual.

29. Because he can handle balls very well.

(I’m sorry.)

32. Because he is too beautiful for only one gender to truly love and appreciate.

33. Also because he’s smart and goes to school and would probably rationally choose to spend his life with a man if he wasn’t straight anyway.

34. And because all men desperately want to be his boyfriend (even though he’s not gay and we totally respect his straight lifestyle, it’s just a thing that would be nice).
