The duo bonded over the fact quickly and became friends. Then, they fell for each other. The most hilarious people on YouTube once dated, and their vlogs were simply the best. However, they broke up owing to “distance” and busy schedules. The fans were very saddened by the fact since their vlogs were the funniest. (Catch one above)
Jason Nash’s Mother
Yes, you all heard it right. He was married to Jason Nash, fellow The Vlog Member squad’s mom. For a month! And they went to Hawaii for their “honeymoon.” This SIKE moment came to be when Jason Nash told him that he will never have an ex-wife because he won’t ever be married in the first place. This was in retaliation to David’s comment that Jason’s children liked their stepdad more than him.
Natalie Mariduena (rumour)
They have been together since they were children and hence are very close. But he very clearly admitted that they weren’t dating – yet, in an interview in 2020. However, he did admit to having a crush on her since they were very young. In April 2020, they even fostered a puppy together. He even wished her Happy Valentine’s Day. What is one to assume?!
Is he dating someone now, then?
Life is literally on fire for David Dobrik now. He has been fighting allegations right and left, had to step down from a very esteemed position, and all his “friends” are accusing him of one thing or the other. So, it is safe to say that even if he were dating someone, he would like to keep it down.

But the rumors of him dating are on the rise again. So we don’t know if David Dobrik is dating or not.
