How did Amy Schumer meet her boyfriend?

Despite the well circulated speculations that Amy Schumer met her boyfriend on the dating app Bumble, Schumer denied the claims and stated that she met Hanisch at a different dating app.

She reveals her first meeting with her boyfriend in her book The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.

 “In my main profile picture, I was wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap with no makeup. It was a selfie and I made a gross face, looking as though I were dying, because I was hiking, so I was. I also put up a picture of Sophia from ‘The Golden Girls,’ Claire Danes making her cry face on ‘Homeland,’ and one more normal photo where I was smiling and wearing a sweatshirt,” Schumer wrote. “Vanessa and I posted our profiles at the same time and scream-giggled like little girls.”

After browsing through the app and clicking the “like” button on a few profiles, she landed on the profile of Ben Hanisch, a furniture designer based on the North Side who would later be her boyfriend.

Though Amy has kept the app a secret, judging by her descriptions, she seems to be talking about the dating app Raya.
