Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten simply started out as dance partners, but now the Dancing With the Stars pair is a serious power couple. While they’re trying keeping their heads in the DWTS game in order to slay the competition, the two essentially confirmed their relationship when they legit gushed their feelings for one another and kissed on TV. However, some fans are questioning whether their love story is just for TV or if it’s the real deal. Turns out, they’re not even reading what people have to say about their relationship.

“Honestly, I haven’t looked at social media for like three weeks. I just post photos because I don’t want…there is no reason for negativity in the world. I don’t understand why there has to be negativity, things should just be positive and I just think I should look at the positive,” Alan said in an interview with Hollywood Life.

The two realize that they’re going to get haters no matter what, so there’s no point in paying attention to all that.

Alexis added, “People are going to hate either way, so I should just say my truth and say my feelings. If they take it one way or another that is their perception of the situation and not mine.”

This past week, Alexis dedicated her semi-finals performance to her bae. And yes, it was seriously the sweetest.

“I came on this show for my mom, and I dedicated this season to her, which was so powerful for me,” Alexis said to Alan on the show. “And you’ve been a huge part of my growth. I want to dedicate this to you.”

It’s been quite an emotional season for the pair. Not only have they unexpectedly fallen for each other on the show, but Alexis has opened up in a way she never has before about her late mother, Cynthia. Earlier this season, for the “Most Memorable Year” episode, Alexis chose 2014 – the year her mom passed away.

“On Mother’s Day, my dad came downstairs to my room and said, ‘Something’s wrong with mom.’ My mom had Stage 4 cancer and she wouldn’t live another week,” the 21-year-old social media star revealed on the show. “And it’s crazy because you never think that the strongest person in your family would be the most broken.”

There’s no doubt DWTS has made a huge impact in Alexis and Alan’s lives, and it’s not even over yet!
