The fans believed and still believe that they make a perfect couple and should be together. All the hints they have been giving away, like moving in together and making videos with each other frequently, are a sign that they could be dating, but there is no confirmation from the two yet.

Fans Love Them To See Together

Dan and Phil have been sharing a home since around 2011, according to their Instagram posts. They spent many years together in Manchester which is identified as Phil’s apartment. Then they moved to London and shared an apartment.

They were dissatisfied with the current flat and moved to a new flat in London. They stayed there for over a year before moving to a jointly acquired real estate. “Boxboys are now officially gay homeowners,” they captioned the photo.


They have told their fans that they are just friends and that they understand each other; nothing beyond that is shared by the two of them. Fans always love to see them together onscreen and their videos always get millions of views and like. For now, their relationship seems platonic and there is no sexual tension given the fact that they lived together.
