Should You Spend All Your Free Time Together When You're First In Love Like Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Are Doing?

Justin and Selena are attached at the hip. Is this healthy?

These days, wherever Selena Gomez goes, Justin Bieber follows — and vice versa. It’s rare that you’ll see the two young lovebirds anywhere without the other. But is it healthy to be together non-stop, or will their relationship suffer from ‘too much too soon’ syndrome?

It’s true that the 17-year-old singer and his singer/actress girlfriend always seem to be in each other’s pockets. He hung out backstage while she promoted her new movie, Monte Carlo, on Fox & Friends in NYC June 29. They shopped at Armani Exchange in midtown Manhattan June 28 — and even repeatedly dropped the ‘l’ bomb several times in public. Prior to that, on June 23, the “Baby” singer attended his baby’s premiere, acting like a doting boyfriend. They have also attended the Billboard Music Awards and MTV Movie Awards together and have vacationed in both Hawaii and St. Lucia.

They have been together for eight months. Given the time frame, is this young couple spending too much time together to make it last?

Honestly, I don’t think so. The two kept their relationship casual at first, and as time has progressed, their love has evolved. It’s only natural to want to spend more time with someone as you get to know them better and fall for them harder. Justin and Selena’s romance is going at a normal, safe speed.

I will say this though: the two do seem to be spending so much time having a party of two, that their friendships may suffer as a result. The most important thing to remember when you’re all loved up is to maintain contact with your friends. You never know what’s going to happen in the long run, and you definitely don’t want to be left friendless and boy-friendless should your relationship end.
