They cant, out-right, tell each other that they care. So they talk like this....
"Oh hey... I'm gonna order a pizza and stuff ... if ya wanna come hang out." instead of "You're homeless in the middle of winter and I really don't want you to freeze or starve to death so please come with me!"
"I'm ttly not cuddling into you for warmth NAW, just being a mooch like usual HAHA! Im not like, desperate or anything!" Instead of "Im really cold so im just gonna snuggle with you for warmth! Please take me home!"
I'm sure he stayed the night cuz:
"Well it seems your clothes arn't done washing so, you will have to stay." and not "Im not letting you go out in the cold! Cuz damn it I'm worried!"
"Well if ya cant be without my awesome-ness! hahaha~" instead of "OMG THANK YOU ITS FREEZING! YOU'RE A BRO! :'D"
MEN. this is how they are. They're not awkward at all. Naw
