Is rushing a relationship the surest way to kill it?
Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio have been nearly inseparable since May, when they’ve taken their newfound romance on an international tour de love. But can their relationship be sustained by constant vacations or are they just avoiding reality?
Since becoming inseparable after attending the Cannes Film Festival together just one month ago, Leo has romanced Blake in Monte Carlo, France, Portofino, Italy and now, the idyllic California resort town of Carmel; the two first were seen hanging out with friends back in November.
But is the Gossip Girl star just using Leo as a rebound romance after breaking up with longtime boyfriend Penn Badgley, or do she and Mr. DiCaprio actually have a genuine shot at love?
The demise of her real relationship with Penn certainly could be a factor in this latest love affair, but chances are that Blake is simply swept up in the romance of the gorgeous locations she’s traveling to. She’s being lulled into a false sense of reality in a sense.
She and Leonardo are moving way too fast for their romance to last, but perhaps that isn’t what either is looking for at the moment, especially after splitting from their longtime partners (he with Israeli model Bar Refaeli). Perhaps they’re OK with being one another’s rebounds, because at least they’re having a good time.
If you feel the need to rush a relationship with a guy you actually like, remember that you can’t hurry love — and if you try, you’re just going to find that your romance will be over before it even started.
