Zoë Sugg and Alfie Deyes have cemented themselves as one of YouTube’s long lasting couples over the years.

The English natives met in 2012, three years after they each created their YouTube channels. As they each gained millions of followers, the duo (a.k.a. “Zalfie”) also sparked a romance and made their relationship status official in 2013.

“Alfie and I both have days when we feel the pressure on our relationship and want to punch each other in the head – who doesn’t?!,” Zoella shared in a February 2018 interview with Glamour UK. “But we know when to talk, and when to give each other space.”

She continued: “Alfie films every day which I took a bit of getting used to, but we have a routine where I might say, ‘I don’t fancy being in your video today,’ and he’ll just say ‘OK.’ But really, we don’t argue very much at all. We’re kind of boring in that sense.”

She went on to note that their relationship “is never competitive” in respects to their online followings. “I can talk to him about an issue and I don’t have to explain it because he understands immediately,” Sugg told the magazine. “The downfall is we talk about work a lot and we both work from home so we’re around each other a lot.”
