Selena is dating Justin Bieber…but still spends time with Nick Jonas. Is this a relationship faux pas?

Selena Gomez is walking on the wild side and treading on some dangerous territory these days. The 18-year-old starlet freely admits that she hangs out with ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas although she’s currently dating someone else – none other than pint-sized pop star Justin Bieber! Is this something YOU should try at home?

“I try to be a good person and a good friend to people,” the brunette beauty tells BOP magazine. “That’s something that’s very important to me. Nick is a very good friend. He’s a lovely guy, we’re good friends and I enjoy his company!’”

I don’t know how the Biebster feels about Selena’s close and personal relationship with her past, but, knowing how territorial guys can get, I can’t imagine he’s particularly happy about it. Should Selena try to be sparing his feelings and avoiding contact with Nick, or is she in the right?

Simply stated, if your new guy has an issue with you seeing an ex, you probably shouldn’t go out of your way to spend time with your former lover. Some contact is OK – a few casual text messages or an occasional phone call – but if you were in love with him and he makes your new BF feel insecure, then make contact minimal. He’s an ex for a reason, after all, and you don’t want to jeopardize a new relationship.

However, you should probably think about why you’re spending all this time with an ex, if you ARE doing so. I’m with Selena and prefer to be friends with exes (unless they cheated or treated you badly, of course) but if you’re spending as much time with your past guy as your are with your present one, then Houston, your relationship might have a problem. Just saying…
