I can’t tell you how excited I was to meet Davey Wavey during one of our YouTube Next Trainer hangouts. He is such a cutie and when I found out that we both had mutual feelings about creating something together, I nearly flipped out!
For those of you who don’t know who Davey is, he is a very influential gay voice on YouTube. He also happens to have a fitness channel too and that is how we met! Together, we made an ab workout video for you that is in real time so that you can follow along. I want you to do the whole thing – there are new moves in there that you haven’t seen before, so give it a shot!
I have a very soft spot for gay guys – I’m not gonna lie – I love them and we tend to get along very well! I’m gonna add a little tidbit here from my personal life on why this collab video means a lot to me.
Back in college, I had a GBF or gay best friend. We literally were inseparable. If you ever watched Will & Grace, I was Grace and he was Will. It was a relationship/friendship that was somewhere between best friends and lovers. We talked about everything and we truly loved each other. Cared for each other in every which way. It’s one of the most amazing, unique friendships I have ever had.
Unfortunately, things got rough when boyfriends got into the picture. We were both hurt. I’m going to make the story short and say that we ended up having to officially “break up”. As weird as it sounds, I cried for days while listening to sad love songs. He was such a huge part of my life…and then all of a sudden. No more communication. It’s been about 3 years, I miss him dearly, and I still think about him at least a few times a week. I just couldn’t find a good reason to call him and tell him how I’ve been feeling these past few years.
A couple weeks ago, I was cleaning my room and found a picture of us that I had saved from college. Inside was an unopened envelope. I tore it open to find a letter from him that I had never read. The date was around the same time we had broken up. Needless to say, it made me very emotional. This was the reason. This was the sign. I took a deep breath and reached out to him.
Sorry for the major tangent, but I felt that this was natural to write seeing that I just did a collab video with Davey Wavey. Davey is such a fantastic person and reminds me a lot of my old GBF. I’ll let you guys how this story ends if/once our reunion occurs. Do any of you guys have GBFs? Have you ever had to deal with a break up of this sort?
Enjoy the ab workout. Please do the whole thing! I promise you that it will be a good one!!!!!!
