Liza Koshy and David Dobrik are the gold standard for what YouTube stars should be. They’ve both had huge followings since the early days of Vine, and have since exploded onto other social media platforms. The best part? These two are in a relationship together and if you’ve been following them, you know that they are one couple that gives everyone #relationshipgoals. They’re literally too cute not to adore and with both their social media channels steadily on the rise, they just keep getting more popular. Being one of YouTube’s most famous (and favorite) couples, people are always wondering about their status; are Liza Koshy and David Dobrik still dating? They are so busy sometimes it’s hard to tell! But we decided to check in and see where they’re at.
Are They Still Together?
Did Liza and David break up? Are Liza Koshy and David Dobrik still together? If you go through various reddits, forums, and other places that track celebrity relationship statuses, these questions come up fairly often, usually followed by comments asking: why did Liza and David break up? It then spawns numerous other commenters taking sides in the conflict that may or may not even be happening.
So, just to calm everyone down, as far as we can tell, Liza Koshy and David Dobrik are still very much a couple! In November 2017, Koshy posted a sketch of she and Dobrik in celebration of their anniversary. Dobrik did something similar.
But if you thought they may have broken up, we wouldn’t blame you. There are multiple things that might lead you to believe they aren’t together anymore.
Why You May Think They Broke Up
If you look at many other couples that are in the YouTube game, it’s really easy to know that they are dating, and rather easy to know when they break up. This is due to the fact that many of these couples work together, or are at least in partnership with one another.
They are in plenty of videos together, tons of Instagram pics, etc. Conversely, when that couple breaks up, you usually hear about it, often in the most dramatic of ways. They make videos telling the audience their side of the story of what happened, occasionally there is sniping at one another via Instagram or Twitter, and then they go their separate ways.
And that’s part of why you may think Koshy and Dobrik aren’t together anymore. While the two are very much a couple, they don’t actually work together that often, despite their many videos of them together. Liza, having won a slew of Internet awards last year, is seemingly moving up the latter in her comedic career. However, Dobrik has always seemed to be right there with her. Even when she picked up her win at the Streamy Awards 2017, David was there showering her with kisses and compliments. In fact, David himself took home a Streamy award of his own that night, and the two seemed as in love as they’ve always been! (Their comedic affection for one another is possibly what makes them so damn lovable!)
They took over the Interview of each other on their respective wins. The clip will have you believing these two are soul mates and if they ever break up, we may lose our faith in love.
They Are Both Working Hard
Koshy and Dobrik are incredibly busy with both their careers steadily on the rise. Dobrik just made a video with Jennifer Lopez to promote an upcoming TV concert event and it is gaining a ton of attention, while Liza is actually busy working on her brand new YouTube Red Comedy series, Liza on Demand (coming out this year). It’s a very different venture for both Dobrik and Lopez, as she and her team are trying to make inroads to other media to help promote her brand.
Meanwhile, Koshy has not only her YouTube channel to keep going, but she also has regular television gigs like her ongoing role on Freakish, and her work on MTV’s latest revival of TRL, and her new YouTube Red series is already generating a lot of buzz.
One issue that often pops up when rumors of the couple surface is Dobrik’s status in the United States and the possible repeal of DACA.
DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and was meant to give children that were born in another country but came to the United States at a young age, a foothold in the country. Dobrik was born in Slovakia and came to the United States when he was just three. With President Trump trying to repeal DACA, it puts Dobrik in a very tricky position.
Currently, Dobrik can’t travel outside of the United States for fear that he may not be let back in. There is also a chance that he may be deported. So, traveling has become and issue, which is an issue in itself as the couple’s lives sometimes demand them to do so. These fears have brought up the question of why Koshy and Dobrik don’t just get married. They are in love and it would solve Dobrik’s status problems, right?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t exactly work like that. Dobrik and Koshy are also young, and getting married is a pretty big step. We all know that many couples who get married when they were too young drift apart, so maybe these two are trying to avoid that mistake. The fact they haven’t gotten married often contributes to the rumors of their demise as a couple, anyway. As of right now, it doesn’t look like that’s the case because there’s been no confirmed reports of a split.
Trust us, if these two break up, we will be the first to report on it (and crying while we do).
