Sydney Sweeney Likely Won’t Address Those Engagement Rumors

Sydney Sweeney has been in the spotlight quite a bit in the past year. Thanks to her performances on wildly popular TV shows like The White Lotus and Euphoria, the actor has accrued quite a bit of fame. However, recently, she made headlines because of her personal life. After she was spotted wearing a diamond ring, fans began speculating that she was engaged to her boyfriend, Jonathan Davino.

How long has Sydney Sweeney been dating her boyfriend, Jonathan Davino?

Though Sweeney has yet to confirm her relationship with Davino, they have been reportedly dating since 2018. In October of the aforementioned year, they were photographed together at an event in Los Angeles. Since then, they’ve been spotted and photographed together a number of times. The pair were even captured kissing on a boat in Italy in 2021.

What does the ‘Euphoria’ actor’s rumored fiancé do for a living?

Unlike Sweeney, Davino is not in the entertainment industry at all. Instead, he is the heir to his family’s restaurant, Pompei, in Chicago. The Players Table producer has made mention of how much she loves the city of Chicago in past interviews. In a conversation with Elite Daily, she revealed that she could see herself settling down in The Windy City one day. “I have a place there,” she revealed. “It’s like my getaway place.”

Why Sweeney won’t date anyone in the entertainment industry

Though Sweeney remains tight-lipped about her relationship, it makes sense that Davino isn’t in the industry based on what the actor has shared about her preferences. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, she explained that she likes to keep her romantic relationships private.

“I don’t date people in the spotlight,” Sweeney shared. “I don’t date actors or musicians or anyone in entertainment because I can just be normal Syd that way and it’s easiest. I have a great support system. I have people who will battle for me and allow me to be on the pedestal and shine without making me feel like, ‘Oh no, I’m shining too bright and I need to step back.'”

Why Sweeney chooses to keep her romantic relationship quiet

In the aforementioned interview, Sweeney also revealed why she’s made the decision to keep her personal life completely private. She explained that she has to keep her real-life private from even her fans in order to be successful in the entertainment industry.

“I would love to share my normal life so that people can see that it’s not all glamour,” Sweeney explained. “But I can’t because one, I like my privacy, and two, social media is another platform for business. Sharing my life on it could go against the integrity of the business and brand I’m trying to create.”

What does ‘The White Lotus’ cast member look for in a romantic partner?

Given Sweeney’s penchant for keeping her love life private, she probably won’t be addressing the rumors that she’s engaged to her boyfriend. However, she did give fans a hint about what her relationship with Davino is like. When asked what she looks for in a romantic partner, The Handmaid’s Tale alum gave a clear answer.

“I look for a best friend,” Sweeney explained. “I need to be able to be with someone who I can literally hang out with 24/7 and never get sick of and we laugh every single day.”
