Lauren Conrad is known for being on trend and it looks like her love life is no exception.  The Hills alum is rumored to be dating one of the stars of the hugely popular MTV show, Teen Wolf. Conrad, 25, was spotted with actor Colton Haynes, 23, at an L.A. hotspot last week.  While there was no official PDA, “They have been good friends for a long time,” a source tells People.  Conrad ended a three-year relationship with actor Kyle Howard, 33, in June.

How do you keep your brand new relationship out of the spotlight?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you’ve started dating someone new, sometimes you want to keep it under wraps until things get serious.  Cupid has some tips on how to make sure your new love affair stays out of the public eye:

1. Don’t tell: Keep mum about your new relationship and if a friend finds out, ask them to respect your privacy and keep it on the DL until you’re ready to tell other people.

2. Plan your dates: Think about where you two decide to hang out and make sure it’s not a place your family or friends go often.  At the beginning stages of your relationship, let your love grow in private if you want to stay out of the spotlight.

3. Ask your mate: Make sure you and your new boo are on the same page.  If you want to keep your relationship secret until it gets serious, check to see if your partner is okay with not telling.
