Walking Dead's Creator finally reveals Daryl Dixon's Sexual Orientation

Last night on the Talking Dead, the post show for The Walking Dead, creator Robert Kirkman revealed the sexual orientation of Daryl Dixon.

Awhile ago, it was rumored that he could be gay, but Robert cleared that up.
"We play Daryl Dixon as being somewhat asexual on the show. He's a very introverted character and I think that's some of his appeal," Kirkman said. "I do have to clear something up, though: in the letter column of the comic book that I do, I mentioned that there was a possibility early on about making Daryl Dixon's character gay. It caused quite a hubbub online and I just wanted to clarify that the possibility is there and that I would have been fine with it, the network would have been fine with it, but we ultimately didn't do that. I can make it official: Daryl Dixon is straight."
Aw, well, that's okay. However, we may see an actual gay character from the comics, so it could be Paul Monroe or maybe Aaron hitting the screen soon.

Would've been better to leave it a mystery, so I could still think of him as gay or at least curious lol
