In another post, Patrick shared Comstock had looked out for her on the slopes and detailed some fun situations she encountered.
This is one of Patrick's many outdoor adventures with her new boyfriend. The two got together in 2021 and have often shared about their travels together.
She had previously opened up about the qualities she found attractive during an Instagram Q&A with her followers. She noted she wanted her future partner to love traveling on top of having several other traits.
Danica Patrick and Her New Boyfriend
Patrick and Comstock began dating in early 2021. However, it was only in April of the year that the pair went Instagram official.
The Pretty Intense podcaster took to Instagram on April 16, 2021, to post a picture of her getting a kiss on the cheek from her new boyfriend.
It was revealed in February 2021 that the two of them were part of a group that invested in Beam, a direct-to-consumer wellness brand. It was also through this group that the two were set up.
Two days after going Instagram official, Comstock was again spotted in a photo that Patrick shared from their trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The same month, Patrick gushed about her relationship with Comstock when talking to Extra TV.
"We both love to travel and we're both super open-minded," she said of their relationship. She further added that she and Comstock could talk for hours on end about any topic and that she loved it.
Danica Patrick's Past Relationships
Before Patrick got together with her new boyfriend, she dated football quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The two had first confirmed their relationship in January 2018. In May of the same year, she recalled the story of their first meeting while appearing on Jenny McCarthy's SiriusXM radio show.
"We met at the ESPYs in 2012. We both remember meeting each other, it was quick," Patrick shared before adding, "I got his email address, and I remember thinking to myself, 'Oh, not a phone number? Just an email address?'"
The pair quarantined together following the coronavirus outbreak but called it quits in July 2020.
Patrick was previously married to Paul Edward Hospenthal. The two tied the knot in 2005 and divorced in 2013, after eight years of marriage.
She later dated fellow NASCAR star Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for five years before calling it quits in 2017.
