Ian dated Melanie Moat from 2007. He met Melanie when he was visiting a friend in Sacramento. The two began dating shortly after and maintained a long-distance relationship for nearly five years.
Having decided to take their relationship to the next level, she moved in with Ian in 2012 and the pair were very popular among Smosh fans.
Unfortunately, the two decided to break up and Ian’s girlfriend of seven years made a public announcement regarding their mutual decision on 12 September 2014 through her Twitter account.
