Remember all that speculation sparked off by the film The Social Network about an embittered Zuckerberg, who had been jilted by his girlfriend? Well, it's not true. The Facebook founder has in fact, been dating the same lady for the last many years.

How do we know?
Remember the man Pradeep Manukonda, who had been stalking Zuckerberg? Well, a restraining order has been served to Manukonda, preventing him from going within 300 yards of Zuckerberg and his sister Randi, who is also Facebook's marketing director. Also protected in the order is (ahem ahem) Priscilla Chan, Zuckerberg's longtime girlfriend, reported TMZ.

Priscilla Chan ZuckerbergChan and Zuckerberg have been dating since his days at Harvard. The two met at a party while waiting in line for the bathroom; Chan later told The New Yorker that she thought Zuckerberg was "this nerdy guy who was just a little bit out there."



That's not all. Zuckerberg had even offered Chan a job at Facebook with him. According to The Harvard Crimson, this was the conversation that followed.



"Hey Priscilla, do you want a job at the Facebook?" Zuckerberg asked a passing friend.



"I'd love a job at Facebook," Priscilla Chan '07 responded, offering him a Twizzler candy.

And the lady sure has her man under her thumb. Author and tech journalist Sarah Lacy has written that Chan has imposed strict rules on her relationship with Zuckerberg. One of the top rules: "One date per week, a minimum of a hundred minutes of alone time, not in his apartment, and definitely not at Facebook."

And yes, of course she is on Facebook.
