The relationship of Natalie Dyer and Charlie Heaton started when they played a character in the timeline of 1984 Hawkins. The show Stranger Things became the way for the characters Nancy Wheeler and Jonathan Byers, the pair of a formidable boyfriend-girlfriend duo to have a developed romance in real life.
There are rumors saying that their romance started in early September. But a little more than a year later, a confirmation was made for their romance through a simple act of public display of affection. Due to this course of action, they are often seen together and regularly on red carpets and Instagram showing their lovely photos in their cute poses. Also, on the later part of the season of Stranger Things, their relationship has progressed:

For Halloween in 2016, Dyer and Heaton dressed as the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz, respectively, with two pals.
More rumors were made just right after the two were seen to leave the Los Angeles International airport together after attending the 74th Golden Globe Awards since Stranger Things was nominated for the best television series drama.
Rumors have started to grow and the couple chose to deflect them. Dyer chose to give a general answer as to what they truly are.
Walking hand-in-hand are what Dyer and Heaton are caught doing down the street of New York City.

The 2017 Fashion Awards held in London is where the couple made their confirmation of their relationship by hitting the red carpet together. Heaton wore a beautiful satin canary yellow bomber jacket wguke Dyer chose a stunning burgundy dress with stars embossed on it that is made by Coach.
An Instagram post was made by Heaton greeting Dyer for her 21st birthday. They were also spotted on the festival grounds of the after party of Desert Nights in Palm Springs.
The couple attended the Emmy Awards together with Dyer wearing a stunning gold embroidered Dolce and Gabbana gown while Heaton looked dashing in a classic tuxedo.
In an interview, Dyer told the press what he loved the most about his boyfriend, “He’s alright I guess. He doesn’t mess up our scenes too much!” she joked. “No, he’s great. He’s talented, like everybody in the cast. They’re all super, just great to work with.”
Heaton opened up in a magazine cover story for V Man stating that it’s nice to have a partner like Dyers who’s going through the same obstacles as he is career-wise.

Heaton was asked of the nature of their relationship and he plainly said, “We didn't really know what the relationship was,” but according to the show’s co-creator Matt Duffer, the attraction between the two is uncanny.
After many months of being quiet, the couple attended the Dior Homme catwalk after-party together held in London. Rumors have grew since this is a rare public appearance after the couple decided to stay private about their relationship.
Dyer seems to think that people’s interest in their relationship is a bit strange and cliche. According to her, “We were colleagues first,” she explained. “It’s a standard, natural thing that would’ve happened either way. We work on the same show – naturally we would do interviews together and things like that. The weirdest thing about [our relationship] is other people’s perception and reaction to it. Everything else just feels very human.”
Even if the horror comes from the Upside-Down, it is true that you can find love in Hawkins, Indiana. After Stranger Things debuted in July 2016, Charlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer moved their romance from the screen to the real world. The chemistry is uncanny and the love between the two can be felt by their fans.
