Is Marissa Neitling in a Relationship of Any Kind?
Not much is known about Neitling's personal life as she rarely makes a public appearance or posts regularly across multiple social media platforms. She does have a previously known relationship with a man named Rob Archibald (not to be confused with the Scottish Basketball player who died in 2020). She posted multiple photos with her presumed boyfriend in 2017 as she traveled with him everywhere, with the most recent one, still in 2017, captioned, "We found each other!"
It would be unimaginable that the two are not still partners based on their time together.

Based on the few posts she's made with him, they seemed to have started dating well before she first introduced him in a fourth of July post in 2016. "I'm so happy to be exploring and adventuring this big, wide world together," she said in another post for his birthday on October 31, 2016. "I love you! ?❤️"
Whether she and her "hot dog-eating sidekick" are still together is a mystery on account of her lack of posts in recent years. However, there is concern over trouble due to the lack of his presence in the photos from her last holiday visit to her ancestral country of Greece which she had also made with him back in 2017. Fans are themselves asking why she hasn't posted since that visit in August 2021.
Additionally, she was also alleged to have dated her The Last Ship co-star Travis Van Winkle in 2016 as they attended its events together. Of course, they did appear as cozy as romantic partners as well. Winkle has been dating Jessica Kemejuk Blythe since 2016 though.
