"I mean, honestly, I have not looked at social media for like three weeks. I just post the photos," Alan said.
"There's no reason for negativity in the world. I don't understand why there has to be negativity. It should just be positive, so I like to look at the positive."
And Alexis agreed, saying, "People are going to hate either way, so I might as well say my truth, say my feelings, and if they take it one way or the other, that's their perception on the situation, not mine."

When asked what makes Alan so special, Alexis reportedly squeezed the choreographer's jaw and told the magazine, "Have you not seen him? Look at this face!"
The couple appeared to share their first kiss on the November 5 episode of Dancing with the Stars, after Alan confessed he reciprocated Alexis' romantic feelings.
"I'm in a place where we worked so hard for this amazing journey together, and I'm afraid I will mess that up in some way," Alan told the social-media influencer in a background package that aired on the show.
"But I've never had an experience like this. It's so easy to just hang out with you and have fun and not worry about everything else. I do have feelings for you. And I really feel like I am falling for you."
