The two went public as a couple in August of In an interview with J Magazine, McCartan talked about their first date, saying, "I took her out to dinner, and we went to this place in Hollywood called Bourgeois Pig and got some cider. We sat in this really cute room and just drank some cider and talked," McCartan explained. So, we saw all the lights, the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Park Observatory, and it was so romantic.
We were up there until 3 in the morning, just talking and looking at the lights. Then I took her home and it was the most perfect, most romantic first date ever. While reminiscing with Fanlala she explained, "We went to this park because he's just like Romeo, and he was just like—I'm so grossed out by how cute he is—but he picked me up one day from my apartment. He had a car and he was a hot older boy. This was back before we were like really, really dating. We were just sort of seeing what happened.
He took me to this park underneath a tree at sunset. He brought this guitar and he was like, 'Do you wanna come write songs with me in the park? You're what movies are about! So, he like tricked me into it I don't remember this—because in my mind it was magic and sparkles—but I apparently turned away and squealed and turned bright red.
Apparently, when he tells the story, it sounds really cute. Advertising He Put a Ring on it! I can't believe I get to call you that. Thanks for saying yes. It was hard for her to put into words the emotional change, but it definitely sounded like a good thing.
Ryan also sat down with E! News not that long ago to talk about wedding planning, explaining that neither of them is in a rush to make it to the altar. The last thing we want to do is turn it into another thing on the to-do list, you know what I mean? That had always been part of his life plan, so it couldn't have been too surprising for Dove when he purposed.
From their time together on Disney Channel's 'Liv and Maddie,' to their band ' The Girl and the Dreamcatcher' that they started in , we all thought they were perfect together. Ryan took to Twitter to share his heartbreaking news, writing, "Dove has decided this relationship isn't what she wants. We still love each other very much. Please be sensitive, as this is painful.
Some speculated that it was because none of Dove's friends were fond of him, and believed he was using her for exposure. Advertising However, others were insistent that Dove broke off the engagement to date her 'Descendants 2' co-star, Thomas Doherty.
The two were photographed together last December, just months after ending her engagement with Ryan McCartan. Dove confirmed she was dating Thomas Doherty, but insisted on keeping the details private. She did say that the romance with the British actor progressed naturally and that the long distance isn't too bad since they're both busy. We must admit, the two are pretty cute together.
