Interesting tidbits about their relationship
People have been quite curious about how the two met and after denying reports of Amy Schumer meeting her boyfriend Ben Hanisch on the dating app Bumble, Schumer revealed that she met him on a different dating app. She did not name the app but gave some hints that the private social network ‘aimed at creative people. It was thought that she might be talking about Raya. In her memoir, ‘The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo’, she recalled how signing up for the app with a cast member named Vanessa Bayer led her to a long relationship with Hanisch. “In my main profile picture, I was wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap with no makeup. It was a selfie and I made a gross face, looking as though I were dying, because I was hiking, so I was. I also put up a picture of Sophia from ‘The Golden Girls,’ Claire Danes making her cry face on ‘Homeland,’ and one more normal photo where I was smiling and wearing a sweatshirt,” Schumer wrote. “Vanessa and I posted our profiles at the same time and scream-giggled like little girls. “He was dancing with his grandmother in his profile picture at what looked like a wedding. His song was ‘LSD’ by ASAP Rocky, my favorite song on that album. He wasn’t an actor or photographer by trade like all the other guys — and he didn’t live in L.A. or New York,” Schumer wrote. “He was a Chicago guy. We sent each other very simple hellos and short, funny messages.” After that, they chatted on the phone for a few minutes and Hanisch was just as funny on the phone. Hanisch told her then that he had heard her name but had not seen her movie, ‘Trainwreck’. Schumer after that removed her profile and invited Hanisch to meet up for a drink at her place. “The night I first met Ben in person … it was raining. I’d just had acupuncture, so there was oil in my hair and there were deep red lines on my cheeks from being face down on the table, but I put on jeans instead of sweatpants and walked downstairs to meet him outside. I got out into the rain, and Ben was standing there, no umbrella or hood, with a soggy paper bag with a bottle of wine in it. We smiled at each other and in that moment, everything felt right,” she wrote. “I don’t know what will happen with Ben of course. Maybe we’ll grow old together, or maybe we’ll be apart before this book is on the shelves next to Godiva chocolates and gift cards. I would like to think that good things can happen for me in relationships with men …,” Schumer wrote.
