If you aren’t already familiar with Liza Koshy and David Dobrik, now’s a good time to get to know them. She has over 12 million subscribers on YouTube and David’s coming in at 5.4 million. This hilarious power duo is sure to be taking over the internet any day now. Here, we answer all your burning questions about their relationship. Spoiler: they are the cutest, and so is there story.
How did Liza Koshy and David Dobrik meet?
David and Liza were both huge stars on Vine. So, when Viners started hanging out in LA, it was only a matter of time before they ran into each other. David hung out with The Gabbie Show (Gabbie Hanna) a lot and she just happened to be friends with Liza. The two met, started making jokes together, and the rest is history. It was love at first pun.
How long have Liza Koshy and David Dobrik been dating?
David and Liza officially let everyone know that they’re dating on February 15, 2016. Liza posted a photo of the two of them lying in calendars to announce that they’re dating. Get it? If you look closely, the calendars have November 28th circled in red ink because that’s the day they became official. So cute!
Liza confirmed their relationship on Instagram by writing, "Only we would spend a pun of money on calendars to take a pic just to tell you that yes… we are dating."
Since David makes vlogs on YouTube, you can kind of see the progression of their relationship from strangers, to friends, to more than friends. In September 2015, Liza moved from her Texas to L.A. After that, they go from group hangouts and trips to Target with his roommate Alex Ernst to her becoming a permanent part of his vlog. For a long time, David only did his outros at Liza’s house. Now, he switches it up between friends, but Liza almost always makes an appearance.
These two YouTubers celebrated their first anniversary on November 28, 2016. Both of them posted insanely cute photos on Instagram, complete with perfectly sappy captions. Liza’s photo was taken five days after they met and David’s was after just four days!
In David's one-year anniversary message, he wrote: "This picture looks like we've been happily married for over 50 years and successfully raised 9 extremely intelligent children. When really I took this picture only four days after I first met Liza. Never have I ever gotten so comfortable being around a person as quickly as I did with her. I probably sound so repetitive talking about how lucky I am but like come on dude. Thank you, babe, for what's been the best year of my life and thank you for letting me be there to see you become so successful. HAPPY ONE YEAR BABY. I love you so much @lizakoshy."
Alongside a photo taken just one day later, Liza wrote on their anniversary, "Look how happy I look in this picture, taken only 5 days after meeting this cutie…now imagine how happy I am after dating him for 365 days. I doubt you can even imagine, because it's hard for me to even describe how happy this kid makes me."
Liza continued, "I've never grown so close and so comfortable with someone, and it wasn't hard since you're so comfy to snuggle with. And so fun to laugh with. And so proud to be with. And so easy to love. I love you so much, dude. With all my heart, stomach, liver, and left kidney. I'm selling the right one to buy myself a Tesla so you'll love me more. Excited for more anniversaries and more cheesy captions! I love you. Happy 1-year cutie ❤️." Awww!
When was David and Liza’s first kiss?
Four days after they met, David and Liza went to Kian Lawley and JC Caylen’s party. According to David, “Liza had a brilliant idea to take [him] up to the rooftop.” Once up there, he made the first move and they had their first kiss! But wait, it gets cuter!
Before they go back down, she picked up a bunch of gravel from the roof and saved it because she didn’t want to forget that moment. So, a few months later, Liza calls David panicking because the rock is missing! He just tells her that he lost it and has to calm her down by saying it’s probably somewhere in his room. Fast forward to Valentine’s Day. David got her a super sweet card and a ring. You know, the ring she is literally always wearing! In the video “IT’S TIME WE TELL YOU,” Liza explains that the ring is absolutely perfect for her. So, after giving her the ring, David says that he found the rock. Yay! He has Liza close her eyes, put her hands out, and wait for the rock. Except it’s not in the palm of her hands, it’s on her finger. He put the rock in a ring! Is anyone else screaming? Just me?
The couple also celebrated another type of first kiss. When David hit one million subscribers, they gave the fans what they’ve been asking for: a kiss on camera! Of course, the moment is full of jokes, but that just makes it more perfect.
Are Liza Koshy and David Dobrik married or engaged?
The pair hasn't made an official announcement of their engagement, which leads us to believe that, no, there's no marriage in the works. They're constantly making jokes about kids and moving in together, so it can be pretty misleading.
One big reason fans think David and Liza are getting married has to do with a serious issue. David was actually born in Slovakia, a country in Eastern Europe. His parents brought him the United States when he was just a kid and he never officially became a citizen. Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, David is allowed to work, drive, and basically be a normal citizen in America. He's even said that he paid $400,000 in taxes in 2016. But with DACA being repealed under this new administration, David might be headed back to a country he can't even remember. He also cannot leave the country without the possibility of being denied re-entry. It's a lot.
I paid $400,000 in taxes last year and all I got was a free trip back to Slovakia#DefendDACA

So, fans have been flooding his comments saying that he and Liza should just get married. Then David can apply for a green card and be safe from deportation. But obviously nothing is that simple, and it would take a lot for two 21-year-olds to just get married. For now, they're just boyfriend and girlfriend and clearly loving every second of it.
With their second anniversary coming up soon, there's no telling how Liza and David might celebrate. Maybe that proposal everyone's asking for? More likely, David will pull a huge prank and get millions of views. We just better get our hearts prepared because it's sure to be super cute.
