So, now that he's gay, everyone wants to know who is he dating or what's the story behind his past relationship.
Before jumping on to his relationship history, let's first find out about Reid's struggles with plastic surgery.
Reid Ewing suffered to Body Dysmorphia and had addiction to plastic surgery since early age
Reid Ewing had portrayed the popular on-and-off boyfriend of Sarah Hyland in Modern Family, that had gained him quite a focus in the industry.
But he became a headline grabber when he confessed his addiction to plastic surgery and body dysmorphia on his blog in The Huffington Post.

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a mental disorder, the state in which a person feels like some aspect of one's body is flawed and wants measures to hide or fix it.
Ewing was completely obsessed with his looks and he even got his first surgery, receiving cheek implants at a very young age of 19.
He confessed that he thought if he had just one procedure, he would instantly look like Brad Pitt.
But the worst thing happened as the results of the implants were horrible. The lower half of his cheeks became hollow looking like a corpse and he had to isolate himself from friends and family which was really difficult for him.

On his blog, he wrote,
"I went back to the doctor several times in a frenzy, but he kept refusing to operate on me for another six months, saying I would eventually get used to the change. I couldn’t let anyone see me like this, so I stayed in complete isolation.
When I went out, people on the street would stare at me, and when I visited my parents they thought I had contracted some illness."
Again, the then 20-year old actor sought after another doctor to fix his face who gave him a cheek implant. This, too, like the first one, didn't turn out to be good.
He went under the knife, more 8 times and experimented with injectable fillers and fat transfers for quite a long time.
He also confessed that none of the doctors told him that he had the mental health disorder and he would rather visit a psychologist.
He could not bear all the pain in his face and the heavy medications he had to take, and all the isolation and depression, so back in 2012, he finally vowed to never get a cosmetic surgery ever again.
He also wrote that he wished he could go back and undo all the surgeries, in his blog. He got treated for his mental disease and took nearly six months to get out and accept himself the way he is, without obsessing his looks and face.
Reid Ewing is possibly single, no rumors of him dating anyone
Now that he's confessed he's gay, it's hard to speculate who he might be dating. Before he came out of the closet, his onscreen chemistry with Sarah Hyland was much loved by all the viewers.
However, there has not been any rumors of them dating as Sarah was already in a relationship with boyfriend, Dominic Sherwood.
After going through such difficult times of isolation and depression due to his mental illness, he's finally moved on with his life, accepting the way he is.
Perhaps, he now wants to enjoy his life the way it is, without getting involved with someone.
