Mahluna says that it was a long discussion and that both of them thought about it extensively. After all, according to her stories, she didn’t have the nicest experiences.

The streamer says that she was previously in a public relationship that went quite well. However, she quickly noticed that she was often reduced to just the relationship. The phenomenon is also known in the USA, where one of the most successful streamers, QTCinderella, has been fighting for years to not just be seen as “Ludwig’s girlfriend”.

Viewers were angry with her

What experiences has she had with viewers on this topic? After the relationship became public knowledge, Mahluna was single for a while, which was also known to her viewers. The streamer says that during this time between relationships, some strange situations occurred.

In one of her streams, she was asked whether she could imagine having a relationship with a viewer. At first, she refused, arguing that she didn’t even know the people.

One of those viewers then wrote her a private message on Instagram – a “three-page letter” according to her. In it, he apparently expressed his dissatisfaction with her saying such a thing and was apparently quite angry.

Mahluna adds that she almost felt compelled to make the relationship public so that such people would stop writing to her. “If you’re in a relationship, then some of these people create distance – which is a good thing,” adds the streamer.

“Many things will become easier,” explains Mahluna

How is your current relationship going? In the meantime, Lukas came into her life, as Mahluna explains. She describes how they had a wonderful dynamic between them from the beginning, which is why it would have been strange for her to hide it.

She further reports that it became difficult to keep their relationship a secret, especially because she often streamed at his house and many viewers recognized the background and asked about it.

So she decided to be transparent with people to avoid misunderstandings. She adds: “The fact that he is a content creator and I am a content creator and we produce a lot of content together makes a lot of things easier.”

“People always think they know better than you”

What are your negative experiences with public relations? Mahluna says that it really annoyed her when people wrote or spoke badly about her relationship. Henke adds: “Yes, exactly, because people always think they know better than you do.”

Mahluna further explains that she initially reacted angrily about it about three years ago. At that time, she still had a hard time dealing with negative comments as she had just started streaming and was still taking it very seriously.

But she quickly learned that these comments were unimportant and that they actually strengthened the relationship. She doesn’t regret this decision. However, she can completely understand if other people decide against it.
