If You've Ever Dated A Celeb Without Realizing They Were Famous, Tell Us Alllll About It

Recently, I rounded up some celebs whose spouses and partners had no idea they were famous, and it got me wondering just how many people out there have dated, flirted with, or even rejected a celeb without realizing who they were.

Like, for example, maybe you're like Danielle Jonas, who was on a family vacation in the Bahamas when both Joe and Kevin Jonas hit on her. She didn't know who the Jonas Brothers were!

Maybe you met them through work, like Shaun White. He met his now-girlfriend Nina Dobrev when they spoke at the same event, but he had no idea she was an actor until they went to dinner afterwards. He was confused when the staff wanted their picture with Elena from The Vampire Diaries, not an Olympic gold medalist!

Or maybe you can relate to Lily Allen, who matched with David Harbour on a dating app. In his picture, he was wearing his police uniform from Stranger Things, so she "thought he was just, like, a sexy policeman from a reality TV show."
