Sources tell HollywoodLife.com Demi and Wilmer aren’t rushing into anything too serious, but should Demi even be in a relationship so soon out of treatment?

Sources confirm to HollywoodLife.com Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama have been seeing one another since January, but because Demi, 18, only recently was released from treatment for “emotional issues,” they are taking things slowly.

“Demi’s super fragile right now,” one insider tells us. “Everyone around her is hesitant about her getting into a deep relationship with Wilmer right off the bat.”

That said, Demi and Wilmer, who’s more than 10 years her senior, are definitely an item. “They are totally seeing one another and spending a bunch of time together,” our source says.

On-lookers at the Sherman Oaks Galleria, where Demi and Wilmer went on a date over Presidents’ Day weekend, tell us the couple acted more like friends than lovers.

“They weren’t being romantic at all,” one eyewitness says. “There wasn’t any PDA or anything when they were together.”

Adds another on-looker, “But you could tell they were totally enjoying each other’s company. They were smiling and laughing. It seemed natural.”

Even if Demi and Wilmer are “taking things slowly,” it’s not smart for Demi to be falling for anyone right now, says Los Angeles-based psychotherapist Dr. Jenn Berman.

“Generally, what they say is that for the first year after dealing with compulsions or eating disorders it’s best not to date at all,” she says. “Because one of the biggest reasons someone returns to their addictive behavior is because of a breakup.”

If Demi really likes Wilmer, how in the world is she supposed to stop her heart from feeling something?

“It’s really hard. Ideally you don’t put yourself in any situations to meet people,” Dr. Jenn — who is also the host of “The Love and Sex Show with Dr. Jenn” on Sirius XM — tells us.

“I would tell Demi to make her recovery her number one priority. Whatever it is she needs to do, that needs to remain the priority over her relationship…because without that healing, she won’t have a relationship at all.”

Do YOU think Demi should start another relationship right now or are you nervous after what happened with Joe Jonas?

Its not true they are’nt dating wilmer denies it and a friend of his says she was with him a few days ago and he is still single. And Demi denies it through her reps.
Hollywouldlife is one of the sites that spread lies about celebritys you should not believe anything hollywood life say.
And anyways cant two celebritys just hang for a while just as friends :/
Stop being nosy people and Stop jumping to the wrong conclusions without any facts!

Sources…in other words Bull shitters that you guys are stupid enough to believe right? The question isn’t “do you think she should be in a relationship” the question is, is there any validity to this story at all? And the answer is no. Your sources are bsers with no real proof and you have conflicting stories like crazy.

““I would tell Demi to make her recovery her number one priority. Whatever it is she needs to do, that needs to remain the priority over her relationship…because without that healing, she won’t have a relationship at all.”

WHat a stupid statement to make. How do you know that Demi isn’t making this her number one priority? There is almost no credible proof that these two are an item. There is no confirmation of any sort and the “sources” that speak out to this site are spotty at best.

Do you guys have SOLID proof that they were even SEEN together as of recent? How do you know the “sources” that told you this aren’t the same sources that sold this lie to Perez Hilton? You guys are idiots.
