Since 2009, Dan Howell and Phil Lester, a British team, have collaborated on content. Soon after they began working together, the duo became a hit. They drew in followers with their engaging content, which included anything from challenges to Q&A videos and pranks.
Dan and Phil established their gaming channel in September 2014, and by March 2015, it had a million members. It was the fastest-growing YouTube channel at the time, and it now has 2.9 million subscribers. Since they began working together, Dan and Phil’s relationship has been a source of contention.
This article will tell you everything you need to know about the couple’s romance.
Dan Referred To Phil As His Soulmate
Dan was a major fan of Phil’s programming when he put the first video on his channel in 2006. Dan insisted on messaging Phil on Twitter, and the two met in 2009 to work on their debut video. It was the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration between two of the UK’s most popular content makers.
It was never apparent whether the two were simply acquaintances or dating over the years. Dan opened out about his relationship with Phil in a video released in June 2019 in which he came out as LGBT. He stated, “
“It was more than just a romantic relationship.” This is someone who actually cared about my well-being. I had faith in them. And I felt protected for the first time since I was a small girl… we are really best friends. Companions for the whole of one’s life. “As in, true soul mates.”
Dan, unfortunately, did not elaborate on whether or not the couple was still together. He was aware that his admirers were curious, but he maintained that he preferred to keep his personal life private. As Dan put it,
“I’m sure a lot of people want to know a lot more than that, which I take as a compliment, but here’s the thing… I’m the type of person who prefers to keep my personal life secret. “Phil is the same way.”
The Couple Moved In Together
On June 18th, 2021, Dan tweeted, “The lads are finally homeowning gays.”
In a video titled Something We Want to Tell You!, the couple talked about their new home. The couple claimed that they purchased the home in 2017 and spent time upgrading it to meet their needs.
The pair declared that they would not be providing a house tour, much to the dismay of eager admirers. They stated that the tour will not be given due to privacy concerns.
It Appears Like The Two Are Just Buddies
Since posting his coming out video, Dan appears to have taken a YouTube break. He and Phil haven’t worked together in a while, but their friendship is still solid.
There appears to be no romantic tension between the two at the moment. Their relationship appears platonic, and they appear to be content with it.
