Even celebrities use dating apps! This Is Us star Chrissy Metz just revealed that she met her boyfriend Bradley Collins on the popular app, Bumble.
Metz shared the info Monday with Andy Cohen on his Sirius XM show, Radio Andy. Metz said that she deliberately didn’t put a lot of information on her profile “because I thought it sort of weeds out the people who want to maybe talk to me for any other reason than a genuine reason.”
And, Metz said, her job definitely weeded out some potential dates. “I do remember seeing a guy’s picture and he was an aspiring writer and he had a This Is Us coffee cup and I was like, ‘Oh, I can’t, I can’t. That would just be too weird,’” she remembered thinking. “And then I was like, ‘Oh, that’s sweet. But, like, I can’t.’”

Metz said she talked “to a couple people” and realized “Oh, we’re not clicking. We’re not vibing.” But, once she touched base with her now-boyfriend, they realized they had a lot in common. “Interestingly enough, Bradley and I have all the same friends—he knows all the same songwriters, he’s [been] in music publishing for 16 years,” she said.
The two realized that they’ve “been in the same rooms, but we had never met…I feel like it was meant to be, for sure,” Metz said. “Who knew I had to go on the old Bumble?” she joked, adding, “I have no shame.”

Metz went public with her boyfriend on Instagram in October. “Happy #nationalboyfriendday to my dreamboat!” she captioned a series of photos of the two of them. “Bradley, from the first moment I laid eyes on you I wanted and needed to know you. Now I feel so lucky to love you. You can #Collinsmesmitten for sure! Thank you for being the absolute wonder that you are, I love you.”
Collins also shared a photo of the couple on Instagram around the same time to celebrate Metz’s birthday. “From our first date in May, you’ve had me #Metzmerized with love, laughter and kindness,” he wrote. “You’re not the best thing that’s happened during quarantine; you’re the best that’s ever happened to me.
I love you.”

Metz previously dated composer Hal Rosenfeld, who showed up in several of her Instagram posts.
While reports this summer suggested that she and Rosenfeld only recently split, Metz went on her Instagram Story to say that they actually broke up nearly two years before that. “Can’t believe everything you read. #LateToTheParty,” she wrote at the time.
Metz and Collins seem pretty serious. They celebrated the holidays together and rang in the New Year at home, according to their Instagram posts.
