Bass dated actress Danielle Fishel of TV`s Boy Meets World throughout 1999 and 2000. Fishel stated that she was heavily invested in the relationship, commenting that she was "so in love" with Bass. Bass ended the relationship after one year, and continued to exclusively date women until he was 22.
Her most visible relationship was with Lance Bass, who revealed that he was gay in 2006. Of Bass' sexuality, Fishel said, "It wasn’t a shock for me. I found out probably a year or two after we broke up. People magazine was not my first time knowing Lance was gay! He is an awesome guy, he was an awesome boyfriend and he is still a very good friend of mine."
