In the enlightening interview, the How I Met Your Mother star revealed what he finds most attractive about his soul mate.

"There’s something kinetic about him and his being. He’s classically sexy, yet he’s very much a boy in his energy," said Harris, who admitted he thought David was straight the first time he met him.

Instead of a quiet "kind of Marlboro Man," Burtka is more like Tigger, he joked.

"We’re hyper similar and also incredibly opposite. We share a wardrobe. We have the same shoe size, body size, height, and weight. We’re both Gemini. We both like the idea of family -- not a nuclear family, but a social family," the former Doogie Howser star explained.

The 37-year-old actor admitted that David, 35, was his first serious relationship and before he met him he thought he might stay solo forever, but then the sparks flew!
