How Long Did Jennette McCurdy and Paul Glaser Date?
While it’s unclear how long Jennette and Paul dated, she spoke publicly of their relationship years after the fact. Jennette started dating Paul when her late mother’s cancer returned, she told Vulture in November 2015.
“I put my feelings of love toward someone other than my mother, who had been the receiver of all that love up until that point,” she explained. “I knew she was leaving, and I was panicking, and I think there was just a part of myself that was ready to switch these feelings of love toward a new person.”
Then, when her mother continued to get sicker, they split.
“I needed to go through that loss on my own,” she said. “I felt that I would put too much of myself into another person, and become very attached. I thought, ‘Oh, if I share this loss with someone, and I share this part of myself with someone, and this reality with someone, then they become my reality.’ And that thought scared me.”

Paul, for his part, has never talked publicly about the past romance.
