Nick Jonas sure has a love for Brits.  People reports that Jonas, 18, is getting close with Les Miserables co-star Samantha Barks.  Barks, 20, was all giggles when asked about Jonas, commenting, “Nick is such a wonderful person…we definitely keep in contact.”  Jonas had nothing to say on the subject, politely telling reporters, “I keep that stuff to myself.”  The Jo-Bro has been playing the role of Marius since June, and, according to the Daily Mail,  has been romantically linked to another one of his co-stars, Lucie Jones.  Now, however, Jonas seems extremely happy with Barks.  When asked about his love for British women, Jonas merely replied, “They’re great — very kind…[and] very supportive.”What are important things to consider before entering the dating world?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you’re young and just starting to realize you’re attracted to the opposite sex, it can seem like nothing can go wrong.  Cupid has some things to consider before jumping into the dating pool:

1. Know the risks: A mistake many young people make when they first start dating is not knowing the risks.  There are too many stories of unwanted teenage pregnancies and rape that circulate these days, so it’s important to be cautious.

2. Separation: Young people often make the mistake of mixing their private and professional lives.  It’s important to keep your relationship separate from your career ambitions when you’re young.  If your relationship ends, your job should not be affected.

3. Peer pressure: Peer pressure is at its peak when you’re young.  Don’t date around just because everyone else is doing it.  Only play the field if you feel ready.
