Yvette Nicole Brown Never Speaks about Being Married – She Believes ‘Most Men Aren’t Looking for a Wife'
Yvette Nicole Brown has spoken candidly about navigating her dating life. The comedian has also shared her opinions on today's dating trends, all while keeping her relationship status a mystery.
Yvette Nicole Brown cemented her name as an accomplished comedian and actress. Fans may recognize the Hollywood star from roles in the beloved comedies "Community" and "The Odd Couple."
However, another aspect of Yvette Nicole Brown's life that has garnered interest is her love life. She has never married but has been honest about seeking and navigating romance. A few years back, the comedian hinted that she had a special someone in her life.
Yvette Nicole Brown on Flirting and past Loves
While chatting with Wendy Williams on the host's eponymous show in 2017, Brown confessed that she was "the worst" at picking up on someone flirting with her. She described herself as a "very polite person" and would often mistake flirting for politeness.
"I am the worst when it comes to telling if someone likes me; I have no idea, I have no way to tell," she admitted. At the time, she revealed she was single and available for romance. Brown added that she was "very accessible," a remark that earned giggles from the audience.
"Wait!" she asserted jokingly before clarifying that she was open to communicating with fans on social media and in public. When asked if she had been in love, she said it had only been with two men.
By then, both were married, and one even had kids. Brown had no hard feelings about either former flame. "Yeah, they're happy. They were good guys; it just didn't work out," she explained.
Yvette Nicole Brown on Dating in the Age of Social Media
In a mid-2020 interview, Brown briefly touched on her love life, sharing that quarantine had impacted it in good and bad ways. The actress said she expected a resurgence in how dating was done when she was younger.
In another chat with Rev Run, she described this older courting method: "If you liked someone, you talked to him for a while. And you were talking, and you got to know them before anything physical ever happened."
Unfortunately, she added, today's dating trends are dominated by "hookup culture." But Brown's preferences remained unchanged; she preferred getting to know someone before taking things further.
Speaking about marriage, Brown noted there was unnecessary societal pressure on older women who hadn't married. In the previously mentioned chat, Rev Run believed "the problem" was that most men weren't looking for wives on social media. And to that, Brown responded:
"The problem is most men aren't looking for a wife."
Yvette Nicole Brown's Alleged Mystery Man & Twitter Boyfriend
In December 2018, Brown shared a photo on Facebook depicting her shadow holding the hand of a male figure wearing a cap standing next to her. "Photographic proof that my boyfriend may actually be dating," she captioned.
It's unclear if the male figure in the photo was her boyfriend or if it was another of her jokes, as the actress has had a "Twitter boyfriend" for some time — her online lover "Captain America" star Chris Evans.
The pair have jokingly flirted continuously on social media, but things came to a hilarious head in 2021 when Lizzo drunkenly DMed Evans on Instagram and posted about it. "[...] Alexa play: 'The Boy is Mine' REAL loud at Lizzo's house," Brown humorously tweeted in response.
