Tyler is said dating Rachele Brooke Smith, but this is still a gossip nothing official.
In the TV Series Teen Wolf, Tyler plays Derek and Dylan O’Brien is Stiles. Two characters who are written as straights. But interestigly enough the fans imagine a bromance between them and create a name for their potential romantic relationship which is STEREK. Fan drawings, websites, videos are now circulating on the net. Jeff Davis, the writer was surprised when he discovered at the end of Season 2 that the fan imagination goes beyond his own, but probably in the Season 3 he will think about it !
