Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may not be the only celebrity exes on the mend! In the latest celebrity news, The Weeknd and Bella Hadid have recently been in contact with one another, reports EOnline.com. The Weeknd was spotted leaving Hadid’s New York City apartment on Tuesday. While friends close to the former celebrity couple say the pair are not officially back together, they do admit there might just be some unresolved feelings – the rapper has “been very open about the fact that he still cares for her deeply.” The Weeknd and Hadid ended their relationship of a year and a half back in 2016.

In celebrity news, it seems lots of celebs are getting back with their exes! What are some benefits to getting back together with someone who you’ve dated before?

Cupid’s Advice:

Dating somebody you’ve dated before isn’t always a bad idea, contrary to what you may have heard. If you are thinking of getting back together with a former fling, here are some advantages to consider:

1. No awkward small-talk: Let’s face it – small talk is pointless, but a staple of any new relationship. (Do you actually care about the weather?) When you jump back into a relationship with somebody from the past, you’ve already gotten to know them and can skip the boring norms. You can move forward faster and get to the more serious stuff.

2. Sense of familiarity: To an extent, we all fear the unknown. Dating somebody you’ve dated before eliminates that fear. Your ex accepted you once before, so whether you realize it or not there’s comfort in knowing you were good enough for them in the past.

3.Time apart helped you grow: While you will be familiar with who they were when you dated them before, you could find yourself surprised at how they changed in your time apart. Perhaps you both did a lot of soul searching and have a whole new outlook on life to share with each other. Whatever the case, you won’t be bored with the same stories.
