Meryl and Maks reunited again this week just two weeks after the couple’s “Dancing With the Stars” win. The Meryl and Maks reunion happened in New York City, and Maks shared a picture of his special time with Meryl on Instagram accompanying it with the words, "All is right in the world again! Got my long awaited hug!” As reported by US Weekly on June 5, Maks doesn’t just talk about his feelings for Meryl, he “raves” about them.
During this week’s interview with US Weekly at the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards, Maks talked about his “romantic” feelings for Meryl and raved about his dance partner. “’I love her. I love her!’ he raved," wrote US Weekly.
For fans of Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the idea of a romance between the “Dancing With the Stars” couple seems perfect. After watching the two compete during season 18, how could they not be involved? The way Meryl looked into Maksim’s eyes, the sensual way they touched each other, there has to be chemistry between them.
What kind of chemistry, though, is a different question. After raving that he loved Meryl, Maks continues to say, “I love her as a person and for what she has allowed me to do with our choreography and how much she's embraced it...She's a brilliant person, and she's also very normal. I enjoyed my time with her. It was sad when the season was over."
After saying “I love her. I love her!” couldn’t he have just stopped talking? It seems somewhere out there is Meryl’s voice which appears to be saying, “I love him, I love him.”
As reported by the Stir, “We've been drooling over the two of them for weeks on end, and now that Maksim Chmerkovskiy has declared his love for Meryl Davis? Um, we can totally go ahead and start planning their hypothetical wedding in our minds.”
In the above video interview, Charlie White, who is the significant other man in Meryl’s life as her ice-dancing partner, provides an interesting insight into the “romantic” relationship of a couple that is in the spotlight. He explains that as long as the cameras are on a couple when competing (such as in ice dancing or “Dancing With the Stars”), the idea of romance and love is part of the performance. It was likely a big part of Meryl and Maks winning "DWTS" and taking home their trophy.
However, once the competition is over and the cameras are turned off, everything returns to real life and real feelings. But the transition between being in front of the camera to being behind the camera is not quite that easy. White has his girlfriend, and he describes that even for her it was a challenge to see her boyfriend and his ice-dancing partner Meryl in such intimate performances as could be seen during their ice-dancing competitions.
Maks added to Charlie’s comments during his US Weekly interview that, “[The rumors are] always circulating around us dancers. It's fine. That's the nature of what we do. We're always in close proximity to each other. In order to produce what Meryl and I produced, there had to have been so much chemistry, and we had it. And that's what leads people who are not used to that to speculate, which is great. I love that."
The Instagram photo of Meryl and Maks reuniting in New York City shows both of them as a perfect and happy couple making it hard to believe that they are not dating and romantically involved. Both are dressed in black, with Maks having his arms around her waist. It certainly looks like they are “having” a great time together as a couple. Quite interestingly, while Maks said in his interview “we had it [chemistry],” Meryl says in the above interview that “Maks and I have an amazing relationship … our chemistry, I think, definitely stems from, you know, our friendship and the time we spent together on and off the dance floor. We had an amazing time.” Two weeks after having won “Dancing With the Stars” -- it looks like they still do.
