was phil ever in a relationship before he met dan?? i just realised that whenever he talks about crushes in his past or relationships in his past it's just about him having crushes when he was really young like 12
if he was, there’s absolutely zero evidence of it online. the one dramatic ~heartbreak~ he’s ever talked about was the girl whom he “started dating” via msn instant messenger and whom he asked for kissing lessons and then who cheated on him with ian who is now one of his closest friends (he talks about the incident a bunch of times: primarily in the video the breakup, but again in this vyou, briefly in this vidcon 2015 interview about his first kiss, and also briefly in his draw my life). the whole relationship lasted a week. safe to say it wasn’t that serious. there was also some involvement with charlieskies soon before he met dan, which had its own complexities, but never appeared to amount to anything actually serious. in summary, i firmly believe dan was his first and only official relationship,,,,,, which you know,, just opens up a lot of lovely and emotional trains of thought.
