She is single

By single, we mean she is yet unmarried. We do not mean she is in no relationship which could well be the reality on ground. We have no clue, but we do know that she once told a magazine that her best advice was to avoid being in a serious relationship in her mid-twenties.

Hannah was born in September 1990. She cannot with a straight face claim to be in her mid-twenties, so what’s going on? We have no clue. If anything changes, you will not be the first to know. We will be lucky to even find out. If we hear anything new about Hannah Gross’ romantic life, a sleepy editor will ask a lazy staff writer to update this post, the staff writer will hand over the assignment to a forgetful sub writer and the job will never be done. The story of us.
