An article by Distractify gave a more in-depth insight into Dimitri and Amber's relationship: 'He's not a superfan or anything; he's just a guy who happened to watch the show. She's just getting to know him. They've been spending time together at her place. He's a breath of fresh air.'
Even though Dimitri is not a huge fan of the show 'Teen Mom,' he did watch it a few times. When he saw Amber on the series, he thought she was pretty, which got him eager to reach out to her online.
