Meryl Davis, Maksim Chmerkovskiy Dating: Maks Calls Relationship With Meryl A ‘Showmance’?

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are still keeping their maybe-romance under wraps, but a new interview from Maks suggests that the two really might be dating. According to Page Six, Maks recently sat down with Social Life magazine to talk about life, love, and his want for children. The dancing pro admitted that he has gotten extremely close with many of his Dancing With The Stars partners — but he made one particular reference that has people talking:

“Do you know what a showmance is? When you spend three months very closely with someone. . . it is like a summer love. You have no choice but to get involved.”

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have been spotted out together since they won the Mirror Ball Trophy on DWTS. Despite onlookers claiming that the two were very cozy together, Maks and Meryl have chosen not to share details of their relationship (romantic or otherwise) with the public at this time.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the two took separate trips earlier this week, sending fans into a panic with dating speculation. However, Maks went to Mumbai for work and couldn’t have gone to Hawaii with Meryl, even if he had wanted to. If the two are dating, they are not going to be able to spend every waking moment together — that’s the nature of their lives.

Maks is known to be a bit of a playboy and has dated quite a few women in his day. The ballroom dancer says, however, that he is ready to settle down and wants to have (wait for it) children! Could Meryl be the one to have changed him?

He said:

“I raised so many children at [my dance studios], I am ready to create one of my own. I am really ready to create a family now. I need an outlet. I have so much I want to give, and I need someone to give it to.”

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be friends for a long time, if nothing more. The two share a bond that Maks has never shared with another celebrity on the show. He made magic with Meryl — and even though fans want that magic to last forever, Maks and Meryl have to figure out what is best for them. According to Hollywood Take, there is still hope that these two will end up together in the future.

Do you think Maks and Meryl have something more than a friendship?
