It’s wedding bells for one of the most controversial couples in Hollywood: Jesse James and Kat Von D have announced their engagement.  James and now ex-wife Sandra Bullock split in June after news of his multiple affairs surfaced.  The motorcycle mogul, who began dating Kat Von D shortly after the divorce, professed his love for his fiancee to People.  “You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong.  This is one of those times.  2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend.  An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs.”

How do you know when someone is truly committed?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be tough to tell if the person you’re dating is planning on being in the relationship for the long haul.  Cupid has some ideas and how to tell if he’s truly committed:

1. There for you: When the going gets tough, and your partner stands by you in a time of crisis, it’s safe to say he’s not a flight risk.

2. All about PDA: If your mate isn’t afraid to sing your praises in front of anyone and everyone, it’s more than likely true love.

3. Don’t care what people think: When it comes to your relationship, sometimes there will be naysayers.  If your partner doesn’t seem to care about the critics, he’s there for the count.
