YouTuber and his lover, Matthew Fawcus, are head over heels in love! Anyone with one and a half eyes closed might tell merely by scrolling through either of their Instagram sites. Many may be unaware that this LGBT relationship has continued strong for just a week shy of 9 years as of this writing. Cruikshank and his lover dated secretly for a few years before either made the relationship public. On that topic, Cruikshank was the one who made the news of his boyfriend public through a YouTube video. As if it wasn’t enough for viewers to fall in love with the two sweethearts, Cruikshank revealed his connection with Fawcus in an interview with Super Fame. The Nickelodeon actor also said they were living in Australia at the time (2015) and that he would be seeing his boyfriend’s family shortly.

Lucas Cruikshank met his boyfriend over Facebook.

Once upon a time, in 2012, Fawcus, an Australian resident, was in the United States. The two of them happened to be at the same club by chance. “Lucas was there underage,” Fawcus told the publication. Still, they stared at each other afar and ultimately added to Facebook. Yes, their relationship predates Instagram slide-ins – they’ve been together for a long time! The pair did, however, start their chats on Facebook. They haven’t decided whether Fawcus added Cruikshank on Facebook first or sent him a message. They agree on one thing: they met thanks to YouTuber Kingsley, who introduced them.

Firsts for Lucas Cruikshank and Matthew Fawcus

Cruikshank and his lover went out for the first time and grabbed some Pinkberry, and drove around listening to Demi Lovato and Paris Hilton. However, neither of them knows whether it will be their first date. “We didn’t know whether it was a date or not,” Lucas said. “We were both a little creepy about it.”

According to their list of firsts, their first kiss didn’t happen until their fourth date. It’s difficult to ascertain when the first date was without a documented first date. However, Fawcus had this to say: By the fourth date, I was thinking, [expletive] this is [expletive]. This is ridiculous, yet I’m going to kiss him. I then kissed him.

Lucas Cruikshank is coming out.

“I’m homosexual,” Cruikshank said, burst out laughing. “That’s strange saying it on camera.”

He went on to say that it had been an open knowledge among his friends and family and that he had never felt the need to declare his choice publicly. Soon after, he asked the Disney star, “How come you didn’t have to create a video declaring you’re gay?”
