Is Ben Lawson Single? See the 'Firefly Lane' Actor's Dating History!

Ben Lawson is the heartthrob on Netflix’s new series Firefly Lane and all the viewers are probably wondering about his current relationship status!

Well, we can confirm that the 40-year-old Aussie actor is single.

Ben wrote an article for the Sydney Morning Herald last month in which he opened up about his dating history and confirmed that he does not have a girlfriend right now.

In the article, Ben talked about meeting his first serious girlfriend Melissa while working at a restaurant in Brisbane.

“I’d been kicked out of the University of Southern Queensland; she was earning money prior to an article clerkship at a London law firm. Even though Melissa had a boyfriend, I fell completely in love with her,” Ben said. “When she left, we emailed for eight months. Eventually I said, ‘If I came over could I see or stay with you?’ She said yes, and I flew over. Immediately, I told her I loved her. I stayed for four months.”

Ben added, “I returned and was accepted into NIDA. We saw each other when she came back, but it was obvious it was over. Weirdly, I still email her on her birthday each year. She has a couple of little kids now. Melissa is great.”

Ben Lawson and Maile Mildrexler

Ben also opened up about his relationship with former girlfriend Maile Mildrexler.

“My last relationship was with Maile. She is from Hawaii, but we met in 2016 in Portland, Oregon, where I was shooting the TV show Grimm. When her landlord sold her place, she moved in with me in LA, but we broke up in 2019,” he said.

Ben continued, “Maile is one of the smartest and kindest people I know. We talk all the time. She’ll always be the ‘mother’ to my dog, Mochi. I’ve hung out with her and her new boyfriend.”

“When I first moved to LA, I found the dating scene horrible. My jokes died on dates – they didn’t get my humor. I don’t date that much. I’m not scared of commitment, I’m just happy by myself,” he said.
