I agree. They just seem SO dependant on each other and it just seems very unhealthy. i'm 16 and I've been dating my boyfriend for a year and we do different things WITHOUT each other and we still have a great relationship

I'm 21, a bit older than Rachel, and have been with my boyfriend almost as long as she has been with Chris. We go to the same school just like them but we do different things without each other. I feel like besides class, they are with each other 24/7. They've spent all of break together. They don't live separate lives and it's really unhealthy. Them living together isn't probably the best thing, even if Rachel says it is.

They spend all of their time watching TV, playing vide games, and doing things on the internet. They're in college. Don't they go to parties, do things at their school, or just have fun with friends? They're wasting the best years of their life watching hours upon hours of TV and doing nothing.

Exactly!! What would they do without each other? Nothing. . . . I would be completely heartbroken if me and my boyfriend broke up but at least i know that besides him, there are other things i can do, like volunteer, be with friends, etc.. And the worst thing of all is that they have this superior complex and think they're the best couple because they spend every waking minute together

They are far from being the best couple ever lol. I wish Rachel's "minions" would actually realize that their relationship is nothing to compliment and wish for, it's totally the opposite.

And maybe I just have totally different taste in guys, but I don't think Chris is as great looking as Rachel and and Tumblr followers make him out to be. And it's good that she finds him attractive, but I feel like she tries to throw it in our faces that she has such a "hot" boyfriend.

I kind of think that Rachel maybe helps support him with her YT money. He does have a job, I think at the dining hall, but I can't imagine he's really making all that much to afford rent, but maybe his parents are helping him out too.
The only time they're apart is when they're in class (they've taken a class together though) or he's at work. Even when they hang out with friends, they go together, never alone. They haven't spent more than a few hours apart since the summer.
I used to feel badly for him and thought Rachel was kinda bossing him around, but now that I've seen his Twitter, he seems like just as much of an asshole as she is.

Do you think Rachel has made him an asshole though? 2 years ago when Rachel first told Tumblr about him, she said he was very timid and shy. I feel like a guy like that wouldn't act like an asshole. I think all the time he has spent with her has made him like that.

I think the only time that they're alone is when Rachel had that "weekly lunch" thing with her friend but even then they were talking about him a lot. I'm not saying its a BAD relationship like I don't think they're abusive or crazy but they're dependent!

I really think they have no (real life) friends, just on tumblr. Kinda sad.

I think they are too dependent on each other.. BUT:

I dislike how some people here are saying they are "wasting" their college years because they don't spend their time at parties/out with friends and prefer to stay indoors watching TV or on Tumblr. This is a prime example of society's tendency to shun introverts. Now, I actually don't find Rachel to come across as very introverted, but Chris sort-of appears that way. I am an introvert. I can tell you right now that I will NOT be spending my college years attending any bloody parties, I hate them to death. I dislike being around too many people, and would spend most of my time with my closest friends - I usually only have about 4 or 5. Currently, 3 of those very close friends are all online, meaning I only hang around with 2 of them IRL. Then one of those 2 is someone I know from the internet that I meet up with now and again, so that means I hang around with 1 person (and occasionally, her group of friends) IRL on a regular basis.

That is not unhealthy. That is simply how I and many other perfectly healthy, introverted people work, and if that is how Rachel likes things to be then so be it. In all honesty, aside from introversion (which I don't think is what's causing it here), it's probably to do with the fact that she is just a downright unlikeable person. She has Chris wrapped around her little finger and he is one of the few people that knows her IRL that can fucking bare her. That's what I see.

Aside from the complaints about how they spend their time regarding socializing, I think there is a touch of unhealthiness surrounding the fact that they are IN EACH OTHER'S FACES ALL OF THE TIME. I can't help but think how awkward it would be if they ever broke up, with this whole shining the light on CHRACHEL thing and spending every last minute with him. It's almost as if a defining part of her personality and who she is is Chris himself. Which is unhealthy. I'm only 16 and I don't know a whole lot about relationships, but I really don't think having someone that ingrained into your sense of who you are is very healthy. I think if they ever broke up, she would have a seriously difficult time getting over it - and the fact that she's made Chrachel such a massive part of this whole internet-thing wouldn't help at all. There has to be some distance.

I'm not sure about the Chris turning into an asshole theory, haven't really thought about it. My first thought would be that people in relationships that span over a good few months tend to act like each other? That's what I've heard, anyway, that they tend to imitate each other. Like I said, I don't have much experience in that department so I'm only having a guess based on what I've heard. I could be spewing a large amount of bullshit here. :?

I don't know how much she actually hangs out with those girls...the only time I see them is when she vlogs and they meet for lunch.

Unfortunately for her fangirls she meets at meet ups don't really qualify as friends ;)

It's hilarious how they try to throw it in everyone's faces that they have such a "perfect relationship."
If I had their relationship I would commit.

1) Chris is not attractive. At least not conventionally. I would rather kiss a pig than him. It's great that Rachel finds him so attractive, obviously everyone has different tastes, but she should stop bragging 24/7 like she's dating Taylor Lautner or something. Not everyone wants your boyfriend Rach, calm down.

2) They are both assholes. I don't think Rachel "changed" Chris into one, IMO. I think they've both always been ass hole-ish and now, with more videos and Chris being a bigger part of Rachel's internet presence, it's easier to see. Rachel probably rubbed off on him a bit but I don't think a genuinely nice person would have put up with Rachel's constant negativity for so long.

3) Their relationship is not healthy. They NEVER do anything apart. Even married couples spend less time together than these two. They probably wipe each other's asses in the bathroom. It is not healthy to be so dependent on someone that you cannot function without them, which is how their relationship seems. If Rachel can't even visit her own family over the holiday without her boyfriend hanging onto her every second of the day then there's a problem.

4) They are wasting their college years big time. Not necessarily because they aren't going out and partying (like someone else mentioned not everyone enjoys doing that) but they're wasting all of the opportunities that come with being in college. They aren't involved in Greek life, clubs, internships, or the university at all it seems. They aren't even taking challenging courses and they certainly aren't going out and meeting new people. If they ever have kids they'll have a great time telling them about "that amazing Vampire Diaries episode" while everyone else has cool stories and maybe even job offers.

So to conclude, they are both social misfits wasting their time watching TV and eating their own horrible baked goods in a dysfunctional relationship that they are documenting for the internet to see. Boy, I am so jealous I could die.

She may have influenced him, but I think he was just shy when they first started dating so now that he's a little more outgoing and is a big part of her YT career, he's more open about showing the asshole part of his personality. Chris is definitely more introverted than Rachel, but there's a difference between just hanging out with a few friends and spending all your time alone in your apartment constantly watching new TV series. I'm not saying they have to party all the time, but they barely do anything apart from each other, they're together all the time.

i agree that this thread is pretty crazy. imo i think it's okay that rachel and chris are with each other...they live with each other so of course they'll be seeing each other A LOT. and i don't think it's really unhealthy that they spend a lot of time with each other. my good friend and her boyfriend have been with each other for like 9 months and already live with each other. i think it really depends on how well things are in the relationship.......but i do think it's weird that they ONLY hang with each other. they could go hang out with their friends together... who knows, maybe they do and we just don't see it?

I think them living with each other is the reason why they only hang out with each other. If they lived together and had different lives and hung out with different people from time to time, it would be okay. But they hang out in their apartment all day by themselves. I think if they lived by themselves or with other roommates besides one another, they'd have more options to do things separately and would maybe venture out in the world and meet other people.

I feel like they don't even associate with their other roommates. Do they not like them? I know one of them is a girl. If I were Rachel I'd want to be friends with her and have another girl around to relate to.

I don't think she changed him necessarily, I think that his own personality has been brought out more into the open as he got more comfortable with the youtube thing and is more apart of it now.

I don't think she changed him. I think he's always had a personality, but we never got to see it at first. He was shy when on camera and his personality probably only came out off camera. But as he got more comfortable when being filmed, his personality did come out and we could see his true colors. He's always been the way he is.

I get the impression that Rachel is a bit bossy and treats Chris like he's her bitch or something.

I haven't been keeping up with her videos really. In which ones does Chris act like an asshole? I've never seen him act that way, but as someone mentioned, he must be somewhat negative (or a fucking saint) to have put up with Rachel's whiney ass this long.

Has anyone noticed how much she flirts with that Rhyse guy from tumblr?? It's pretty sketchy considering he looks like an uglier version of Chris IMHO. I bet she's cheating on Chris with him.

i don't know about videos since i rarely watch chrachel cooks, but if you look at his twitter account, it's pretty evident that he's just as much of an asshole as she is, just a lot more introverted.

LOL rhyse lurks here and saw i said it was inappropriate to naked facetime with someone who wasn't her boyfriend, so rachel and her boyfriend made a few posts about it on twitter and tumblr. chris took it as people trying to find a flaw in their relationship.. :?
