Where did Dylan and Kristen first met?
In a 2019 interview with Howard Stern, Kristen Stewart revealed that she met Dylan Meyer for the first time in a movie set several years ago. It wasn’t until years later when they met again at a mutual friend’s birthday party that sparks started flying.
According to Stewart, the day that they met again, it felt like all bets were off. Talking about their reunion, Stewart said:
“She rocked up at a friend’s birthday party and I was like ‘Where have you been, and how have I not known you?’ She’s been living in LA alongside my life somehow and not ever converging.”
Their Romance was Speculated to have Overlapped with Stewart’s prior Relationship
Meyer and Stewart were first rumored to be together after being spotted kissing on New York City Stoop in August 2019. However, not even a month ago, Stewart was photographed kissing her on-off girlfriend Stella Maxwell on a Yacht in Italy. Many speculated Meyer’s romance with Stewart was only a passing fling but an insider revealed that it was a real deal.
“Kristen is spending time with Dylan and very happy about it, she was seeing Stella for a little bit while it worked out, but now she has moved on with Dylan.” the insider told E! News. They added:
“Kristen isn’t holding back at all and loves being with her. They are moving quickly and always together.”

In the same 2019 interview with Howard Stern, Stewart went on to confirm her fast-paced romance with Dylan Meyer. During her appearance, she revealed the couple declared their love for one another after just two weeks of officially dating.
“The first time I told her I loved her, it was really late and we were in some shitty bar and her friends were there or whatever, and they walked out and I was like ‘Oh man, I’m so f***ing in love with you’ Done.”
Kristen also talked about the instant connection the two of them had and explained:
“We’re both from L.A. and we really love L.A. We’re both kind of like scumbags. We both felt like trolls as kids. We’re so similar but different. She’s a writer; She’s brilliant.”
Dylan Doesn’t Believe in Keeping Her Relationship Secret
Since Kristen Stewart does not use social media, they became Instagram official through Dylan’s in October 2019. She posted a black and white photo of a polaroid of the couple kissing with the caption ‘Find me under the covers hiding from the happiness police’.

Meyer and Kristen Finally Got Engaged in November, 2021
In July 2021, the couple sparked rumors of a secret wedding when both of them were photographed wearing rings in their left hand. However, it wasn’t until November 2021, that Kristen revealed that the couple was actually engaged to one another. During her promotions for her new movie ‘Spencer’, Stewart stopped by The Howard Stern Show and dropped the bomb that she was indeed getting married to her girlfriend Dylan Meyer.
“We are totally going to do it. I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted, you know, and she nailed it. It was really cute. She did very well.”
Stewart gushed about her proposal. “We’re marrying. It’s happening” she added excitingly.
She also explained why it was Dylan who proposed. She said:
“I blew my load on Howard Stern and then basically was like, ‘Now, it’s your turn. I kind of did it.’” “It’s not a given that I’d be the one. With two girls you never know who’s going to fulfill what gender roles thing.”
