Ashley just split from Joe Jonas and she’s already moving on! Is it too soon?

Ashley Greene doesn’t seem to have wasted any time in getting over ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas. Although the two literally just announced their split yesterday, she’s already been spotted out with Kings of Leon guitarist Jared Followill. Is she rushing into a new relationship way too fast?

Although Jashley has been done for at least a few weeks, the Twilight starlet isn’t letting any grass grow under her feet. Not only has she been spending copious amounts of time with the rocker, but he’s also met her dad! The three spent St. Patrick’s Day together in NYC, even stopping by Phebe’s Tavern & Grill for some bonding time; this follows a prior date night at trendy Meatpacking District nightclub Avenue.

If Joe and Ashley hadn’t been so loved up, PDA’ing in public and generally making a lot of noise about how awesome the other was, the split wouldn’t have been so shocking. Just mere weeks ago they were singing the others’ praises. But it seemed, until recently, that they were completely into one another. Ashley may be fooling herself that she’s ready to move on.

In fact, the 24-year-old brunette beauty seems to be picking a guy that’s just like Joe — only older, more of a serious musician and more of a straight-up rocker. Their reps claim the break was amicable, but for Ashley to so blatantly and quickly date another man implies that there may have been some very serious recent problems in her year-long relationship.

If you’re really in love with someone, or if you’ve been dating someone for an extended period of time, it’s impossible to switch your feelings off like a lightswitch. So is Ashley over Joe? Probably not. Is it a good idea for her to rebound with a ladies man (Jared has been linked to Miley Cyrus and Julianne Hough in the past)? Heck yes! There’s less of a chance that she’ll actually get serious a second time around after a painful breakup. (But Ash, FYI, not a smooth move introducing your new fling to your dad!)

So if you’ve gone through a very recent breakup, don’t get serious with another guy. Give yourself some time to heal and fully get over your ex. While you’re doing so, don’t be afraid to date — but do be aware that you’re vulnerable. You don’t want two guys to hurt you at the same time, do you? Exactly.
