‘Maybe It’s Love’ starts off with a man organizing toiletries with two labels— one with pink Post-its and one with yellow Post-its. He tears off and takes the ones marked with yellow. A younger man then sinks lower into the bathtub and submerges into the water.
“I have a boyfriend.”
The two guys are in a bathtub engaging in a conversation as they bathe each other languidly. The older guy replies that he knows the other has a boyfriend. The younger guy apologizes and tells him that he should have made it clear from the start. The older man agrees because it could lead to unnecessary issues and complications but he brushes it off, saying he is too old to be getting angry about such things. Yes, because getting informed that your hook-up is a taken man after doing the deed is not something that can invoke wrath or displeasure.
The older adds that his being taken does not prevent him from liking the younger guy anyway. Furthermore, the younger guy just called him “wife” in bed. Okay, let’s go, morals.
The younger counters that it was just something that he said while having sex. The older presses that maybe they can be together despite that slight complication. He repeats that he has a boyfriend, he’s taken, but the older presses that yes, he heard him, and he should just treat him as a “god brother.” Who else is gagging?
The younger man is initially apprehensive so the other asks if it is because he is not his type. The younger denies it and tells him he would not have asked him out if he did not like him. The other asks then if it’s because of his age since he’s older. The younger answers that he actually prefers mature men. The older quips that he has already been classified as a “mature guy” and tickles him. He then questions if his boyfriend is older too, to which he answers no, he is actually around the same age as he is.
The older notes that he must have a variety of preferences and tastes but the other disagrees and says you don’t really have to end up with someone who is to your taste. The older man then asks about his type. The younger refuses to answer. The older adds that he does not know whether he and his boyfriend are in an open relationship but says that it’s not really important. Raise your hand if you disagree.
Anyway, the older man plays with the other’s hands and then asks for a chance because he really wants to be with him. The younger stutters and thinks of an answer before getting pressed on by the older guy that he doesn’t really expect him to break up with his boyfriend, he just needs to think of him as his other guy. He ruffles the younger man’s hair and tells him not to get pressured and to just message him whenever he wants seeing as he has his Line anyway. But wait, he doesn’t know what to call him. The younger guy ponders for a bit before answering he can call him “Dog.” They giggle over it and the older man proceeds to call himself his “Cat.” Cat kisses Dog’s knuckles and Dog kisses him in return.
