A very talented actor, Jake is a good looking man who you would expect to have been married by now, or in the least be a serious relationship.

Even though he is not married, the actor has been dating actress and model, Analeigh Tipton. The actor has been dating the 29 years old woman since September 2014.

What is interesting about the couple is that before they began dating, Analeigh Tipton was dating Aaron McManus who went as far as engaging her in 2013. What is more is that the two of them had met 6 years before the engagement and it was since then that they began dating.

In a deleted Instagram post, she wrote: “If life was expected, love would be bound to an ideal unattainable to any of us. But thankfully, life and love is filled with unexpected beauty: I met this man six years ago, and today, he has asked me to spend the rest of our lives together–facing all of life’s surprises as one. Of course, I said yes :),”

One year later, she met fellow Manhattan Love Story actor McDorman, and the two fell for each other. Years down the line, the two are still together even though there is still no any public talk about marriage.
