Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys can hardly stream on Twitch, or post on Twitter, without a fan pestering her about her relationship status. While she’s been forward about keeping it private, she did let everyone know on Twitter if she’s taken or not.

Pokimane might live in the public eye, but her private life is a pretty big secret. The streamer has gone to great lengths to keep her stream separate from her personal life.

However, this hasn’t stopped some fans from obsessing over her relationship status. While she’s been in hot water before ‘baiting’ an “army of simps,” Pokimane just simply isn’t in the dating scene right now, and she confirmed that on Twitter on March 9.

“Single btw,” Pokimane said, straight to the point.

She elaborated further on, claiming she’s “not looking, [but] just tired of seeing the same question and assumption over and over.”

Pokimane’s two word tweet has gone viral though, not just for herself, but others. Her original tweet has nearly 150,000 likes in four hours, and others have jumped on the “single btw” trend.

Everyone from Peter Park and LuLuLuvely, to LilyPichu, and TommyInnit has replied to Pokimane’s tweet, or made their own sharing their relationship status.

Pokimane reacts to viral ‘single btw’ meme takeoff

A day after Pokimane’s tweet took off, the streamer uploaded a video explaining her reasons for sharing her viral post, which bordered between reacting to older drama and hoping to create a positive meme to share what’s going on in her love life.

“I think it’s kind of cute, because people want to share when they’re seeing someone, or when they’re not seeing someone,” she began. “I think there needs to be a relationship status day, where people can just flex that they’re in a relationship or say that they’re single and looking.”

“You guys know there was that whole thing that happened where people tried so hard to expose me for potentially seeing someone, and I feel like that just like complicated my life to a point where people had a lot of assumptions for a really long time, and it just became a reoccurring question or assumption I would get.”

Pokimane’s past comments on her dating life

Pokimane has been open in the past about keeping her dating life private. She believes keeping her work life and personal life separated is key.

“I personally made the decision seven years ago when I got into streaming that I don’t want my personal life to be part of my content,” she told fans back in August 2020. “That’s what I’m going to stick by until I, or whoever I’m dating, at whatever time, decides otherwise.”

“For me, this also creates a healthier divide between my work life and my personal life ⁠— which is an area where the lines are already pretty blurred.”

Pokimane has openly talked about keeping her private life, private.

The latest development, or lack thereof, has silenced any rumors circulating about the streamer’s love life.

However, you know that when she goes live on Twitch again tomorrow, the fans are going to be pestering her yet again ⁠— it’s just inescapable for Pokimane.
