Grab some heart-shaped chocolate and a dozen roses, it’s time to head out on a date with your YouTube Valentine.
Ever wonder which YouTuber you’d connect with the most if given the chance to go on a date with them? Well, wonder no more, as Evan Edinger has come up with a matchmaking quiz guaranteed to match you with the YouTuber of your dreams.
It might come as a surprise to find out that many of us here at TenEighty HQ didn’t have a Valentine’s date this year, so we decided to take Evan’s quiz and see who we’ll be spending a night on the town with. Overall, we’re pretty happy with who we got matched up with and we’re even happier none of us got stood up!
Daniel J. Layton
With a love of Janet Jackson, cooking and Harry Potter, who better a Valentine than Daniel J. Layton? Imagine all the treats he could bake for us… That is, if he doesn’t eat it all before we get to his place. But, hey, who can say no to a Jammy Dodger? Answer: No one, especially us. Hand it over, Dan, and let our romantic evening begin!
“Can’t wait to disappoint Daniel J. Layton with my lack of knowledge about Janet Jackson. [The] Jammy Dodger is a nice touch, though.” -Wistful in Wolverhampton
If you’ve never had someone bring a kissing booth on the first date, then you’ve obviously never had the pleasure of spending time with the one and only Elle Mills. While it might seem a bit forward, it’s definitely an icebreaker, which is what we need, considering we’re totes awkward when meeting someone for the first time.
“I got Elle Mills. I’m very pleased – she brought a kissing booth to our date.” -Love4Love
“I got Elle Mills. I’m ready to laugh!!!” -Plz date me
Oooh, a first date on a pier? How romantic of you, Ethan Nestor-Darling. And don’t worry, we don’t mind it being a bit foggy. It just gives us more time to ponder our eventual doom and how the foggy abyss is really a metaphor for how we have no idea how our lives will end up, if we even exist at all. What if we’re all a creation of someone’s imagination… O-oh, sorry, got a bit carried away there.
“I got Ethan [from] CrankGameplays and, oh my gosh, he’s such a cutie bean. I already lowkey had a crush on him, so it’s kinda ideal, hehe. Thanks, Evan.” -Lonely Ghost Boy
We’ve never seen someone so enthused to go on a date with us, Connie Glynn. Seriously, we’re feeling a bit overwhelmed. We’re glad to see you liked the roses we got you – we spent hours trying to pick out the perfect ones – and thanks for the lovely compliment. Hearing we’re a six out of 10 in bad lighting has totally made our day.
“I got Connie and I have never been so happy with my outcome. We’re quite alike and she’s precious!” –AlleyKat
We never thought we’d get the chance to date a real life movie director, yet here we are, going out with the one and only Tim Hautekiet. Not only is he considerate (he offered us water as soon as we got to his place), but he also has that sexy from everywhere, but from nowhere accent that’s to die for. Now, if only he’d stop talking all the time. We’d like to get a word or two in before the night’s over.
“I got TimH and, if I’m not mistaken, it was also the result I got last time. I guess some things never change.” -I Don’t Want To Die Alone
“I got TimH! I can’t wait to bond over our mutual love of Spider-Man and then probably hate each other for how we rank the films.” -StuckInAWebOfLove
“I got TimH! He lives on the other side of the world to me, but will be able to list off a whole heap of films I’ll need to watch. Perfect match.” -Lovesick in London
“I got TimH! Looking forward to discussing films and hopefully getting to chill on the set of his next project.” -Eager For Love
We were looking for a mess and we sure got one with Luke Cutforth. But don’t worry, Luke, we too are a mess, so we’re a perfect match! Not only is Luke a diamond in the rough (he made sure to tell us his hair and eye combination are quite rare), but he’s a pro at judging us for our life choices and has also made a feature film. (That still has to be released.) Luke, how much longer are you going to make us wait?!
“I got Luke Cutforth! I feel like he was a perfect result of my choices, and had such a fun little video at the end.” -Mad About You
“I got Luke. We’re both awkward, quirky and friendly individuals, except he has the better hair.” -AdSensational
“I had Luke on my first run through; couldn’t have been happier with it – one of the most humble, creative, hilarious and wonderfully ridiculous creators on the platform and IRL. I always fall for people who make me laugh, so with that, and our penchant for brightly coloured hair, we’d be the perfect match.” -BottleRedHead
“I got Luke! I relate so much to his relatable, self aware and deprecating sense of humour!! He also happens to be genuinely talented, which is a bonus!” -Undeniably Smitten
We had a premonition we’d get Lucy Moon as our Valentine and we’re glad our spidey senses were correct! With our shared love of beauty, music and fashion, we’re the perfect match. Also, we’re constantly stalking her social media and blog, so we know everything ab– We mean, from a first glance at her social media she seems like a pretty cool person who we’d love to get to know better. *Wipes sweat from brow*
“I got Lucy Moon and tbh her vid has me swooning. 10/10, would talk music and Banging Book Club books with her all day.” -Insomniac in Essex
“I got Lucy and she’s pretty awesome.” -Head Over Heels 4 U
Tom Burns sure knows the way to our hearts, by giving us a cat. (And a fluffy one at that!) He’s also a major Disney and baking buff, which has totally won us over. A guy who can bake us chocolate cake while obsessing over our fave movies? We think we’re in love.
“I got Tom Burns and I’m very excited to get to know our third wheel Valentine, Demon Lord Of Darkness.” -iLoveTilly3000
There’s nothing we hate more than dates that involve us being lugged from restaurant to movie theatre to wherever else romantic, so we’re glad Evan’s the type of guy who’s down for chilling and getting to know one another. Who knows? Maybe if he likes us enough he’ll take us on one of his travel adventures! We’ve always wanted to visit Bora Bora. *nudge nudge, wink wink*
“I got Evan! There is no better choice than the insanely talented, nice and creative guy [who] came up with this Valentine’s game.” -Enchanted Mystery
Only dodie would write us a song for our first date! Honestly, we don’t think we’ve experienced anything so romantic. And if she’s willing to do all that for our first date, imagine how she’ll be once we’re officially in a relationship together?! OMG, we’d seriously be so cute. This needs to happen. dodie, what can we do to make you fall endlessly in love with us?
“I got dodie and tbh I wouldn’t expect anything else. I‘d love a good sing-along with a date!!” -Willing to Love
“I got dodie, and finding out she too has never seen Friends gives me such hope.” -Would You Be So Kind
“I also got dodie and I’m super happy with that. A girl who embraces her flaws – especially through song – will always be the one for me.” -A Swooning Leo
“I got dodie! Tbh, I felt like I would anyway because I love her content and as a result chose the options that led to her!” -Let Me Love You
A cake decorated in the shape of a paint palette? Yes, please! Jamie Jo sure knows the way to our hearts, so much so that we’re absolutely smitten! Her Strawberry Shortcake-inspired outfit is total #goals and we’re glad she liked our attire – we spent so long picking it out! We’re also glad she decided to invite Lumière along. His candlelight really helped set the mood for a lovely evening.
“I got Jamie Jo and honestly my day has gotten a thousand times better. She had vegan cake in the kitchen – I was so excited – and she clearly put a lot of effort into the video and into complimenting the viewer, which was really sweet.” -Confirmed 100% Heterosexual
Will you be our Valentine?
It looks like we’re going to have a good Valentine’s Day after all! There’s no better Valentine than a YouTube Valentine, so we know this year’s date is going to be the best yet. Who knows, if we’re lucky maybe it’ll lead to something more down the road. *fingers-crossed*
