The singer and actress previously dated Hal Rosenfeld. Us Weekly broke the news in November 2018 that the pair were seeing each other but they split less than a year later.
The Sierra Burgess Is a Loser star prompted speculation about a breakup when she posted in June 2019 about “learning to be truly open.”
“Sometimes we walk away and sometimes we choose to allow love to expand into a place often unvisited,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “Integrated love is messy, and vulnerable, it demands us to see our partners as flawed (ie imperfect) and to allow them to see the same of us.”
Metz exclusively told Us in October that she was taking some time to focus on herself.
“Things change all the time and I’m just really sort of investing in myself in what I want to do, whether it’s producing or music,” she told Us. “Loving myself back, I think that’s … you gotta start there first.”
When asked about her dating life she told Us that “honesty and trust” is essential.
“Real honesty is real intimacy,” Metz said. “And that’s where I think that foundation is, so … I think if you can find someone that you can be honest with and who’s honest with you and you can trust, that’s the real intimacy and that’s what you want.”
