How 10 of Your Favorite TikTok Couples First Met

Look, I’ll level with you. Dating is hard. Meeting new people — especially during a pandemic — is hard. How in the world are you supposed to find that ~special someone~? Maybe your friends make it look easy to ask someone out or you watch tons of rom-coms and look for tips, but things just don’t work out so well for you.

Instead, why don’t you see how some of your favorite TikTok couples met? From sliding into DMs, to meeting through friends, to just being in the right place at the right time, here’s how several influencer lovebirds first connected. Who knows, maybe it’ll inspire your next meet-cute?

The confusing couple shared in an interview with Young Hollywood back in September 2020 the first thoughts they had when they saw each other for the first time. Quinton said his first thought happened at Social Bash. He asked his friend, Mattia Polibio, “Damn, who is that?!”

Cynthia hilariously used to call Quinton “Crutch Guy” because her first thought was, “What happened to this man’s leg?” Quinton was on crutches when the duo first met.

Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis

Avani told Best Deals Ok during her digital cover story she and Anthony met on social media when they started following one another on Instagram a few years ago.

During a Q&A video on YouTube back in March 2020, Anthony revealed they met in person at Social Bash. Anthony said he tried to introduce himself to Avani, but said Avani doesn’t “acknowledge him, completely ignores [him], does not say a word, and just walks away.”

Avani then replied, “And that was on lies,” so it sounds like Anthony was just joking.

Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon

According to their (now ex) friend, Dayna Marie, she introduced them. Dayna was already friends with Alex before moving to Hawaii where she met Kouvr. After posting a pic on Snapchat of Kouvr sleeping, Alex said something like, “She’s cute, this is the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen.”

Dayna showed Kouvr Alex’s message and Kouvr asked for his Snapchat. They apparently started connecting right away, FaceTiming a lot. Kouvr allegedly had a boyfriend at the time, so that created drama for everyone.

Alex later addressed Dayna’s video and the allegations during a livestream.

The on-again/off-again couple shared in a February 2020 YouTube video that Josh saw Nessa on his For You page on TikTok and just DMed her because he “thought she was a hot TikTok girl.”

He’s lucky shooting his shot worked! That definitely isn’t always the case.

Like Andre and Gabby, this couple met at Playlist Live. “Brady was the really attractive male I saw at Playlist Live,” Larray said, going into detail about how the first time they met, both he and Brady were super-shy around each other.

After some confusing signals and dealing with the fact Brady was cuddling another person after telling Larray to come over, they later had their first kiss.

Andre Swilley and Gabby Morrison
