The Bachelorette has finished another season with Jojo Fletcher finding her prince in Jordan Rodgers. Since then, everyone was wondering who the next Bachelor would be. Front runners for the position were Luke Pell and Chase McNary, both contestants on Jojo’s season. However, in recent celebrity news, we learned that the next to try his hand at love will be Bachelor veteran, Nick Viall. Viall told UsMagazine.com, “I’ve certainly had the practice. I’m definitely ready for it — I’m very excited.” Viall was the runner-up on both Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s season, and spent three months on Bachelor in Paradise hoping to find love. All of his attempts at love on this platform have left some fans feeling skeptical about his next foray on The Bachelor, but we’re hoping for the best!

This celebrity news is super controversial at the moment. What are some ways to overcome gossip related to your relationship?

3. Date night: Use this opportunity to remind each other why you are together. Take a night out of the week and leave your phones, computers and tablets at home. That way, one night a week, all of the background is unimportant because you remember all the things you fell for in this person.
