There are boundaries for the Twitch streamer, especially when it comes to his personal life. As such, he refrained from telling anything about his girlfriend, Alexis, until they got engaged. Announcing to his fans that he proposed to Alexis, Tim disclosed that he has known her since high school. Based on what he related, they dated then but broke up because he was not mature enough to keep the relationship.
As fate would have it, they got back together during college, but it was a long-distance relationship that made it difficult for them to have a smooth relationship; so they broke up again. Sometime in 2015, it dawned on TimTheTatMan that Alexis is the woman he wants to be with for the rest of his life. He reached out to her, told her so, and she left her job to move in with him. Two months later, the gamer was ready to take the relationship to the next level, so he proposed; this was on the 20th of December 2015.
