Selena and Justin broke up on Halloween, however they have been seen together several times since. So, are they on or off? A break may be exactly what the doctor ordered.
Since Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s Oct. 31 break up, they have been seen going for a romantic dinner in NYC, and they were also seen at a Beverly Hills hotel together on Nov. 15, where they had a romantic lunch date. Surely the point of breaking up means that you won’t see each other any more? Right now, their relationship looks like it could become more on and off than Ross and Rachel‘s, so we can’t help but wonder: is this wise for them to be in contact? We got the expert opinion of two physiologists to weigh in on matter. Read on to see what they had to say.
Dr. Susan Abbott, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, says that these post-break up meetings could be a coping mechanism for Selena. “Selena may or may not see this, but she may be trying to let herself down gently. It can be a good survival tactic. Ripping off the Band-Aid can take off the skin – sometimes it’s better to peel.”
She said, “It is not uncommon to see people of this age acting out in this way.” Overall, a break would be a good option for them, as it seems that Justin’s wandering eye needs some exercise. Once he has sowed his wild oats, they could move on with their relationship.
Carole Lieberman, M.D., psychiatrist and author of Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets, says, “It would not be good if this breakup scared Selena enough to rush back and think that Justin will be able to be faithful forever.”
“He may well ignore the temptations to be with other women for awhile, but at some point he will wonder what he’s missing and give into other tantalizing options again. It is normal for guys of his age to want to experience being with more than one woman.”
“If Selena wants to be with him in the long run, and trusts Justin’s love for her, it may well be better to simply give him some time to sow his oats. Yes, this is taking a big risk, and neither one of them may be willing to do it, but if not, these cheating problems will inevitably rear their ugly head down the line.”
That should give Justin and Selena food for thought. Taking a break may be the best thing for them, so they can see if they are meant to be!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Justin and Selena cool things down for a while?
