1. They were first spotted together at a music festival. 

According to Teen Vogue, Tom Holland and Olivia Bolton were first spotted together in early July, when they attended the British Summer Time Hyde Park Festival in London. They were snapped holding hands and "engaging in PDA" while the music played. When the photos were published, it emerged that Bolton was a "lifelong friend" of the actor. 

"Tom and Olivia’s family have been friends for years but it took some time for Tom and Olivia to realize the connection between them,” adding that the pair have allegedly been dating for months. “All their friends and family think they make a lovely couple. He is totally smitten," reported the outlet.

2. Olivia Bolton's Instagram is private ... and Tom Holland follows her on it. 

One of the first things that a celebrity does, when he's dating a person — whether that person is famous or not — is follow her on all her social media pages. And that, according to Elle, is exactly what Tom Holland did. 

"Fans first found out that Holland and Bolton had been friends since childhood when they discovered a photo of them together as kids. Bolton, for her part, has made her Instagram private, and Holland follows her on it. It's a signal that while she and Holland were willing to make their romance public, she isn't interested in the kind of social media attention — and negative comments — being the non-famous girlfriend of a major celebrity can attract, especially when that major celebrity was someone everyone desperately wanted to believe was low-key dating his Spider-Man love interest Zendaya," reported the outlet.

According to Elle, Tom Holland recently said that he was single, but that he was a "relationship" person and that he enjoyed being in a relationship. 

"Holland and Zendaya are not dating. He’s not romantically involved with anyone at the moment but is “definitely a relationship person,” he says. “I’m not the fleeting type at all; it’s not my way of life.” But for now, he’s happy putting all his waking energy into his work," they reported.
