Ben had met Beanie at a mutual friend’s Bat Mitzvah around the mid-2000s, in Los Angeles, and the two struck up the kind of conversation out in the cocktail area that walled them off from the rest of the event.

This was before the time of cell phones, so they didn’t get to connect again until high school, when they reconvened on the first day of ninth grade, as students at Los Angeles’s prestigious Harvard-Westlake School. Talking about the memories of the meeting, Beanie said;
“Ben was wearing that shirt with a recycling symbol on it, I’ll never forget,”

“And light gray Urban Outfitters tight jeans,”
During their first joint interview, Platt and Feldstein almost seemed to function as a single person as one of them almost always has a body part placed atop the other.

They share quick asides, in shorthand, in the way siblings might but it's not so much that they finish each other’s sentences as it is they answer questions as one effervescent, high-octane unit.

Regardless of everything, we feel it's better to leave out any assumptions and give them their own pace and space to talk about their personal life whether it be of their friendship or about their love life. But we do hope that Ben will eventually give details about his relationship.

There's a lot of things known about Ben’s professional life, but very few details about his personal life are known by the world. He is not in the habit of sharing about his relationships, dating life, and that's why there are a lot of rumors flying around that he is gay.

Other than the gay rumors, he was also assumed to be in a relationship with Laura Dreyfuss as in his Instagram, he has a couple of pictures with her. Moreover, she also has a few pictures on her page together with Ben. And the captions for the photos sparked the fire that the two might be just more than friends.
About having any other girlfriend or even affairs, Platt has not been in the headlines for any as he has chosen to remain silent throughout the storm of these rumors. Where most believe that with his personality he might be dating a lot, but none of it gets to reach the media and many claiming he is gay.
Although he has shown great perseverance trying to calm the storm of speculations through silence, we do hope he opens up about it and lets the world know about his personal life, ending baseless and nonsensical allegations.
