More of us than ever before are turning to online dating to help us find a partner. We lead busy lives and often this is the only way we have the time to get out there and meet new people. However, we don’t expect our favorite celebrities to find love in the same way. You may be surprised to learn just how many celebs met their partners through social media sites. The following are just a few of them.
Jennette McCurdy and Andre Drummond
Basketball star Andre Drummond evidently had quite the crush on Jenette, best known for her role in the Nickelodeon hit iCarly as he mentioned her many times on Twitter. Jeanette only found out about this when she was inundated with notifications telling her to check it out. She sent him a public message, he sent his number and the rest is history.
Ariana Grande and Jai Brooks
Ariana Grande certainly doesn’t need to hit the internet to find someone who’s attracted to her. But, Jai charmed her in the sweetest way possible, sending her tweets and even filming a YouTube video about why they should date. Apparently, Ariana’s Mom saw the video and persuaded her daughter to get in touch. It’s like a modern-day fairy tale, often possible just through services like FashionologyMag.
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young
Sadly, this one wasn’t to be as they’ve since broken up. But Iggy and Nick dated for a while after exchanging a few tweets. Twitter seems to be big in celeb dating nowadays.
Calvin Harris and Rita Ora
Now this one didn’t end well at all, with Twitter playing a huge part in the aftermath. But, they first got chatting over a Twitter feud so perhaps they should have seen it coming and saved themselves the rather public heartache.
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa
When asked in an interview who his dream girl would be, Wiz Khalifa answered, Amber Rose. Amber heard this and sent Wiz a tweet. The two started chatting and eventually got married and had a son together. They have since divorced, but remain close for the sake of their son, Sebastian.
Austin Mahone and Katya Elise Henry
This time, it’s a case of finding love through Instagram. Singer-songwriter Austin Mahone spotted gorgeous Katya Elise Henry on Instagram and couldn’t help but give her pictures a like. The two got chatting and ended up dating.
Jake T Austin and Danielle Caesar
Now it’s a case of a fan’s dream coming true as she ended up dating her celebrity crush. Danielle spent five whole years tweeting Disney star, Jake T Austin. She was a huge fan, following him across all social media platforms and sending loving messages. They finally met at Planet Hollywood when Jake posed for a photograph with her. After this, he finally followed her back and they started chatting regularly before eventually dating. See, dreams can come true.
Social media and online dating websites are becoming increasingly popular. So, next time you are online looking for love, remember even gorgeous celebrities sometimes have more luck online.
