Dan & Phil's formspring responses involving sexuality/sexual attraction Late 2009 - Early 2010
Dan and Phil were both expressive about their sexualities on Formspring, a now-defunct question and answer website. While the answers are only dated with the amount of time passed between when they were posted and when the screenshot was taken, Formspring did not launch until November 1, 2009. Dan made his account on November 18, 2009, while Phil's was created on November 25, 2009.

Dan's Dailybooth 7 December 2009
They were also both active on Dailybooth, a photo sharing site that functioned like a 2009 version of instagram. While there is an abundance of Dailybooth posts that heavily imply or directly state attraction between Dan and Phil, there was one noticeable instance of another user referencing Dan's bisexuality.

Dan: What? Like, what if I was? What if I was one hundred percent gay, you know, like the most flaming homosexual person ever, why-why would that matter? Would you stop watching my videos? Like...how does it apply to your life?...hmph...question mark, exclamation mark!

Dan's liveshow 14 May 2013
Dan: Do you want me to be? Unfortunately not. No. Why is there... why do people want... why are people so obsessed with sexuality? I don't know, it's weird. I guess it's because all the young teenage girls like, I want to marry you one day so I don't want you to be gay because that means you don't like vagina. Okay. I'm down with boobs. Don't... don't freak out or kidnap me. Oh god. The world. I hate humans so much. Do you guys hate humans? I think so. If you hate humans you're in the right place.
Dan: I'm gonna have to spend the next two weeks trying not to freak out when I meet Hayley Williams and Jared Leto. Um, 'cause I'm definitely just going to fall on the floor in a puddle when Jared Leto looks at me with his... with his eyes.

No homo - obvs - joking - isn't Lewis Hamilton the most beautiful person ever? I'm not sexually attracted to Lewis Hamilton, but he is so beautiful. Have you seen his face? Like, he always wears aviators and a lot of the time when people wear sunglasses it's because they've got ugly eyes secretly, like - I've been told Tiny Temper is insecure about what his eyes look like, which is why he's permanently wearing sunglasses. But... yeah. Oh my god. He looks like a doll, it's so disturbing.

What the fuck even is your sexuality?

Dan's tweets

"[Louise] made a video with Marcus Butler where they 'sext' people, and this involved me getting a random text from Marcus Butler quite late at night. [finds the text] He texted me saying 'omg i want to lick you til you explode' with a bunch of sexually suggestive emojis. Now for about thirty seconds - really got my hopes up. Um. And then was like, it's a - okay. It's a funny youtube video. Obviously I deleted my first reply, which was like - time and place? You've got abs, can I keep my t-shirt on, but lets do this. And then wrote like a funny one that was like 'I think I've got too many calories for you to lick' or whatever. So that was funny."

For his birthday in 2017, Dan gifted Phil an autographed photo of David Boreanaz naked in the bath.
Phil: It's David Boreanaz in the bath! Look at that face. It is... the most... terrifyingly hilarious present I have ever received. Why did he have a photoshoot in the bath? Why are his nipples out and why is he signing it? I don't know where to put this? I don't know where to look? Where is his hand going? I don't want to know. [...] It was not the signed Buffy picture I was expecting, but I kind of love it all the same. [/quote]

Dan and Phil PASTEL EDITS IN REAL LIFE! 13 February 2017

Dan: Then what's the point?

Why I can’t go back to the gym.. 13 March 2017
Phil: Now imagine if Zac Efron and the Rock had a baby it would be Leon. He was like a muscle machine. I swear he had muscles on his eyelids. Anyway, he floated over to me cause I assume people this perfect don’t need gravity….

Phil: I don’t know where he produced [the tyre from] maybe it was nestled in one of his abs.

Phil: No matter what I was not going to throw up on the hunky personal trainer…

(1:36, 2:14, 5:01)
Dan or the Grim Reaper? SCIENTISTS CAN'T TELL 21 March 2017
Chat: I hate online college, it sucks balls.
Dan: Okay, Chelsea. There we go, person that said university - it sucks balls. But whose to say that sucking balls isn't a good thing? Lets not be offensive. Or is it. Who knows.

Chat: [message about learning reproduction in a mixed class]
Dan: Firstly, non-straight people exist.

Chat: What about when you're asexual?
Dan: That's fine. You can - you can have any sexual identity you want. It's okay. You can feel as specifically sexual or non-specifically sexual as you please.

Chat: Can I be pansexual and asexual at the same time?
Dan: You can - you don't have to define it. You know, there's lots of words. Words can be good. There's a million words for genders, there's a million words for sexual... and they, what they can be good for, these labels, are for helping you to understand your feelings because if you see a description of something written down you can think - that's how I feel. And maybe if you want to convey your personality to somebody, then... you can look that up and you can go yeah, you know what I mean. Maybe you're a panromantic asexual - which means, you know - I can feel attraction to genders but I don't feel particularly sexual. Maybe it's just at this point in my life, maybe that'll change in ten years and that's just a way to do it. I know that some people argue that sexuality and all these labels and definitions are different things but we don't even know what sexuality means. So. There we go.

Chat: I'm ace, but what if I change my mind?
Dan: That's okay. You know, honestly - on one hand you don't have to label yourself. A lot of tumblr, they - they make you feel like I need to label myself with these complicated labels to be cool. You don't have to. If you want to just be a formless blob, a mess that struggles to define themselves from moment to moment, that's also okay. You can use labels, if you wish. If it helps to define yourself. And you can change. You can say, I feel like all my friends and family and people at school are pressuring me to get into a relationship but I feel internally like I identify as asexual because I don't feel like I'm about that. And then maybe, who knows, in five years you'll want to date somebody. That's fine. You can label yourself to tell people what kind of personality you have right now if you want or not if you feel like you want to change your mind. It's okay. It's cool. It's fine.

Chat: Queer is a good umbrella term.
Dan: It is. For basically - I. I like that. As a word for just everything that isn't normative. Which is, you know. Straight. White. Cis males. That are born in capitalist companies into rich families. The opposite of the current society privilege. As an umbrella term for - people who maybe aren't represented or treated as fairly that society should work on representing more. Indeed.
