Cameron Diaz and Yankees’ third baseman Alex Rodriguez continue to play it coy when it comes to their relationship.  According to E! Online, the couple went out of their way to separately enter a teammate’s birthday bash at the 40/40 club in New York City, after arriving in the same vehicle.  A source told E!, “They were very, very strategic about not being near each other or talking to each other, but they were within each other’s eyesight the whole night.”

Is it smart to keep your relationship behind closed doors?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re not ready to jump on the PDA bandwagon just yet, here are Cupid’s tips for keeping things undercover:

1. The truth will be known: At first, the idea of a secret relationship may seem exciting, but chances are, others will find out.  Therefore, consider what will happen once it’s out there.  Also, when you remain in hiding, you close the door to true intimacy, and run the risk of ruining the relationship before it really has a chance to begin.

2. Is it for the right reasons? Make sure you know why you’re keeping your relationship a secret.  Are you worried about what other people will think?  All that matters is how you and your partner feel.  Also, be wary of those who ask to be in a secret relationship from the beginning.

3. Either do it or don’t: If as a couple you decide to keep things on the down low, either follow through all the way, or don’t do it at all.  If friends or family sense some chemistry between the two of you, it will just lead to questions, and make things uncomfortable.
