Not every well-renowned personality feels the need to open up about their personal life publicly. Some prefer to be as low-key as they possibly can. Likewise, there are celebs who do not appear particularly fond of dating unless they meet an ideal woman.

Back in 2015, Lin humorously talked about his single status comparing his life to his teammate who was dating numerous women. He said:
"I don't have a girlfriend who can buy me a car for Christmas. Nick has a different car for every day of the week."
Earlier, as per one of Lin's college friends named Alek Blankenau, Jeremy had a devout girlfriend in his college days. He shared one of the stories where Jeremy forgot to make reservations for Valentine's Day so he cooked homemade chicken parm instead.
