We live on a planet where social media reigns supreme, right? Well, it seems as though the world and his dog spend hours on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter every single day, but did you know that celebs also use it on a regular basis? Many famous faces ditch the assistants who post for them and use their social media channels themselves. They also use this to connect with others, including those who later became love interests…
Rita Ora and Calvin Harris
Calvin Harris has dated some of the most famous ladies in show business, and Rita Ora was one of them. He seemed to like what he saw, so reached out to her on Twitter. Before too long, they were officially dating and winning over the world with their cuteness.
Sadly, it didn’t quite work out for the couple, and they split up rather bitterly after a yearlong romance.
Ryan Lochte and Kayla Rae Reid
Ryan Lochte is first and foremost known for his incredible swimming career. However, it’s fair to say that many other fans know him for his adorable family. Not only did he recently tie the knot with Kayla Rae Reid, but they have also welcomed two adorable kids into the world!
These two first connected after Ryan decided that he wanted to know more about the Playboy model. So, he sent her a message on social media and asked her out for a drink. They later talked on the phone for 10 hours before they just decided to start dating!
Ricky Martin and Jwan Yossef
Ricky Martin is arguably one of the most famous men in the world, but it seems as though it wasn’t loved at first Instagram double-tap for these two. To begin with, Ricky was impressed by Jwan Yossef’s art.
When the singer came across his art page, he was amazed by the artist’s talent and the pieces that he created. This eventually led him to follow Jwan personally on Instagram, and they spoke about art for around six months. After a while, their art conversations led to conversations about life, their hopes, their dreams, and more. They have since tied the knot.
Austin North and Sadie Robertson
Sometimes it can seem as though the internet is better than real life, and it might be fair to say that Austin North and Sadie Robertson realized this over the course of their relationship. Austin reached out to Sadie in 2016, and they soon became inseparable in terms of their communication.
They spoke on the phone every day, they texted all day, and they did this for two years. They didn’t meet in person during this time. They became official as soon as they laid eyes on each other in 2018, but their real-life romance actually only lasted for four months.
Jake T. Austin and Danielle Ceasar
Have you ever messaged a celebrity on social media? Well, Danielle Caesar has. In fact, she messaged Jake T. Austin for a whopping five years before he responded to her. The actor decided to reach out to his number one fan and realized that she was pretty cool. So, they met up and went on a date, and they have been together ever since.
It seems as though Danielle’s persistence paid off in the end because she got exactly what she set out for. Her dream of dating her idol finally came true!
IKatya Henry and Austin Mahone
The world is full of a whole new generation of social media users, and Katya Henry and Austin Mahone are two of those people. Katya is a fitness model and influencer, while Austin made his mark on YouTube.

Ariana Grande and Jai Brooks
Ariana Grande has made no secret of the men that she has dated in the past, and she has referenced Jai Brooks in many of her songs. The singer and the YouTube star got together after Jai, and his brother competed in a bet to see who could get her attention on social media the quickest.

After Wiz confessed that he had a crush on Amber in an interview, Amber decided to send him a message on Twitter.
Jennette McCurdy and Andre Drummond
If you ever watched iCarly, there’s a high chance that you’re familiar with Jennette McCurdy. It seems as though Andre Drummond was also a fan of the actress because he decided to post multiple photographs of her as his #WCW.

Although Colton Underwood has since moved on to the ladies of The Bachelor, there was a time when the former football player dated Olympic gymnast, Aly Raisman. After Colton announced in an interview that he had a crush on the gymnast, Aly reached out on Twitter and told him that she was looking forward to meeting him.
They dated for a little while, but it’s safe to say that he has since moved on.
Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith
It’s no secret that singer and actress Mandy Moore loves music. She was such a huge fan of Dawes that she shared a picture of their album on Instagram. Amazingly, the lead singer caught wind of her love for his music, so decided to reach out to her.

Aren’t these two just the cutest couple you’ve ever seen? Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra finally tied the knot during one of many wedding celebrations in late 2018, after Nick reached out to her on social media in 2016.
It seems as though the Jonas Brother was quite taken with her, so decided to send her a message on Twitter. She replied and asked him to text her instead!
