Previously, Chrissy was in a committed relationship with Hal Rosenfeld for a couple of years. In November 2018, a source revealed exclusively to the Us Weekly that the duo was dating. The source stated,
“They’ve been dating for a few months now. He is such a sweet guy and everyone around Chrissy really likes him.”
They were seen holding hands during a night out at the W Hotel in Hollywood on 11th November 2019. In an interview with Access Live in October that year, Metz hinted at her new romance.
She told, “I’m socializing with a single person.”
In early October, Chrissy celebrated her 38th birthday in Palm Springs Rosenfeld. Her boyfriend Rosenfeld was also there. She shared the photo on Insta with the caption, “Reminiscing about one special birthday weekend with a few special people at such a special place.”
Further confirming her relationship with Hal, the actress stated in a video obtained by Us Weekly, “Maybe I’ve already found [what I’m looking for].” on 30th October.
How Chrissy and boyfriend Hal first met?
In July 2019, Chrissy Metz opened up on The Weekly Williams Show about how her relationship with Rosenfeld began. The couple first started chatting on Instagram after Hal messaged her a couple of times. She told Williams,
I get thankfully a lot of messages and I don’t always get to see them all. He had messaged a couple of times, very sweet but not obnoxious or weird. And then I was like, ‘Let me see if he’s cute. Oh, he’s cute! Okay, I guess I can respond.
The two subsequently hit it off.
The couple also attended several major occasions together
They were pretty open about their romance. The two walked the red carpet together for the first time at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, in Beverly Hills in Jan 2020. The following month, they were spotted cozying up at the beachside.
Back in November 2018, Chrissy Metz’s boyfriend posted a sweet photo with his girlfriend on the eve of Thanksgiving.

Several sources say that her boyfriend Rosenfeld reportedly popped the question. But they never confirmed the speculations.
Are the two still together? Chrissy’s emotional Instagram post hinted they may have split
No, they aren’t together. The couple’s romance ended after two years of a love affair in August 2020. Sources say Chrissy and her now ex-beau Hal separated on mutual understandings.
Even before their amicable split, the two remained ultra-secret about their relationship from the past year. Thie secretiveness had already sparked speculations regarding their break-up.
Their fans started believing more on their possible split, when Metz shared a lengthy emotional message centered on tough relationships in June 2019. Her post goes like this,
I’m learning. I’m learning to be truly open. To see another perspective. To love differently. To change. To evolve. To trudge. If nothing changes, nothing changes.
She concluded the post with,
If you’re deep into a relationship and feel disconnected, explore what parts of your partner you might be rejecting and where you might feel rejected, too. If you can bring that convo forward, or share this post and start a discussion about how to strengthen integrated love, I would love for you to do that. That’s all for now.
At the time, although the actress wasn’t directly addressing her relationship with Hal, it led fans to believe the two may have broken up. And now we know, they certainly have broken-up.

In August 2017, the actress revealed her experience filming romantic scenes with her now TV husband Chris Sullivan in front of her real-life boyfriend Stancil.
Chrissy told at Television Critics Association press tour,
There was the one—the Christmas episode where [Chris and I] did kiss 12 times and Josh was texting me and he was like, ‘Why does [the director] have you guys kiss 12 times?’ And I was like ‘I don’t think she’s having us kiss 12 times, she’s looking for different angles to get.’ And he’s like, ‘OK, I was just asking!’”
However, they couldn’t go as long as a couple. Metz told her relationship with Stancil was over during her appearance on The Wendy Willians Show on March 30, 2018. When the show host, Williams asked if they were still dating, Metz responded, “I’m dating myself currently.” She also revealed the two separated amicably and still were good friends.
