Ben Barnes, who plays the role of General Kirigan in the upcoming series, is super talented, having both great acting and singing skills. He is also from the United Kingdom, which automatically makes him super swoon-worthy.
He’s super talented, super handsome, and super swoon-worthy, but is he also super single?
Who is Ben Barnes dating?
Go ahead and get your best first date outfit ready because it looks like the 39-year-old Brit is single and maybe even ready to mingle as he reflects on what he usually looks for in a budding relationship.
Barnes spoke about how his mother, who is a relationship therapist, taught him all about what love should be like and how falling in love should be a gradual process, stating:
[…] love is something that comes out of a mutual trust with your partner. Shared goals, humour, the excitement when your hands touch… Those are things you can’t tell at first glance. Maybe lust, but not love!
His patience for love definitely helps us understand why he’s waiting for that special someone.
Who has Ben Barnes dated?
According to Who Dated Who, Barnes has courted a few lucky ladies in his past.
His first public relationship was with UK actress Tasmin Egerton back in 2009, but it seems as though the relationship was short-lived as they broke it off in 2010.
After Egerton, Ben Barnes was romantically linked to The Kissing Booth actress Meganne Young, but it appears that the pair never became serious.
Recently, the Shadow and Bone actor was rumored to be in a relationship with American dancer Julianne Hough after a public sighting of the pair walking together. However, a source told reported that Barnes and Hough “have been friends for eight years” and that “there is nothing more to it”.
Though Ben Barnes may not be in a relationship, he is still making magic happen as he plays the role of General Kirigan, which you can see when the original series Shadow and Bone, premieres on Netflix.Next: Best Netflix shows coming in 2021
