Another YouTube couple had decided to call it quits.
Breaking up in a relationship can be really hard. But, breaking up in front of millions of people is even harder. This is a problem that many YouTube couples, who publicize and monetize their relationships, have to deal with. Or even worse, it’s a threat that will haunt them as they continue on in their relationship.
Unfortunately, for YouTuber Mark E. Miller, he had to announce to the world that his long-term boyfriend Ethan Hethcote is no longer his boyfriend.
The two started dating back in 2013 and through Mark’s channel, they have had more than 680,000 people watch them and support their relationship.
As such, the two, in a fashion that’s much like when parents share with their children that a divorce is on the way, made a video about why they broke up.
“We’ve had a very fast, very fun, very exciting five years,” said Hethcote. “We started a company together, we made videos together, so it was like our professional live and persona lives got really intertwined.”
“I don’t mean to say that in a bad way, because it’s an awesome thing,” he added. “I’m so grateful for the experiences that we’ve had. We just need to re-evaluate how we’re doing individually, because everything was just so habitually together.”
The two then quoted a famous RuPaul saying:
“The moral of this story is the RuPaul saying: ‘If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?’” he added.
