As we wait (not so patiently) for the third season of Stranger Things Season 3 to premiere, we can't help but predict all the romances that might go down in the upcoming episodes. After all, star Finn Wolfhard has dubbed the season the "summer of love," and as we all know, the Hawkins gang is growing up. Mike and Eleven have been confirmed to be in a full-blown relationship in the third season, and Max and Lucas seem to be an item as well. Plus, we can't forget how much we're always shipping Hopper and Joyce.

Well, despite who we want our favorite characters to end up with in Stranger Things, let's look at who the actors behind them are dating in real life as we prepare for the new season on July 4.

Are Any of the Stranger Things Cast Dating?

This seems to be a common question. While many of the characters are dating each other in the series, only one real-life couple has come out of Stranger far.

Are Eleven and Mike Dating in Real Life?

First of all, no, Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) and Finn Wolfhard (Mike) are not dating in real life. While nothing has been confirmed, Millie Bobby Brown was most recently rumored to be dating Romeo Beckham, son of Victoria and David. The Sun reported in March 2019 that the pair had been flirting on social and were an item. Since then, however, the rumors have died down. Previously, Millie dated singer Jacob Sartorius on and off between 2017 and 2018.

Winona Ryder started dating fashion designer Scott Mackinlay Hahn back in 2011, but according to PopSugar, it doesn't seem marriage is in the cards for the couple, despite still being together. The actress told Net-a-Porter in 2016, "I'm a serial monogamist. I'd rather never have been married than been divorced a few times. Not that there's anything wrong with divorce, but I don't think I could do it if that was a possibility."
