The Selling Sunset star, 40, opened up about her romance with the Australian musician, 27, in an interview with Vogue published Thursday, explaining to the outlet why the term "unlocked" is the perfect way to describe their relationship.
"It's when they have the key to your heart, but the walls are down and there are no rules or regulations, just love and support," said Stause. "Plus, it ties into real estate, which is actually quite cute!"
When asked what the Under Construction author loves about her relationship with G Flip – who identifies as nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns – Stause told the magazine, "I think my favorite part is just being around G."
Added the Netflix star: "It's such a mood-lifting experience; if you ever had the pleasure of being in the same room with them, you would quickly see what I mean. I love feeling that endless support of just wanting the other person to be fully who they are."

Though Stause mentioned that she and G Flip "want some different things" – the All My Children alum has spoken openly about wanting kids, while she says "that's not where" the Australian singer is in their life right now – the pair's relationship is something Stause will always cherish.
"It really is just a super-open, communicative situation where we don't want to block anything for either person, and we want to offer each other love and support no matter what form it takes," she said. "Without a doubt, we'll always be in each other's lives, so that feels good. I wouldn't have known that I'm open to so many things without them kind of opening my eyes."
Stause and G Flip first went public with their romance during the Selling Sunset season 5 reunion after moderator Tan France asked if she was seeing anyone special five months after splitting with costar and boss, Jason Oppenheim.
"I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that's very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They're nonbinary, so they go by they/them," Stause said. "And they are an extremely talented musician."

Revealing how they connected, she continued, "It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it's about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don't always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let's do that."
On the PEOPLE Every Day podcast in May, G Flip shared how they were introduced to Stause.
"We met last year at Halloween. We were both with our ex-partners then ... And then, we obviously separated from our partners, and we just started talking and stuff," G Flip told host Janine Rubenstein. "We just found a lot of similarities, even though people would think we are from, like, different corners of the world. We find ourselves so similar sometimes."
