By Whitney Johnson

And just like that, it’s over. Jennifer Lopez and Drake, who first sparked dating rumors in December when the rapper was spotted at her Las Vegas show (twice!), have called it quits. According to, the celebrity relationship was “never very serious.” Prior to their celebrity break-up, the pair collaborated together in the studio and were just “having fun.” As a source explained late last year, “They are spending a lot of time together and really enjoying each other, but right now, it’s about the music.” That’s not to say things didn’t get serious fast: The former celebrity couple spent New Year’s Eve together, and the pop star even introduced her rapper beau to her kids, Max and Emme. Reports of a celebrity break-up first appeared earlier this month.

Although we’re saddened by another celebrity break-up, it sounds like this celebrity relationship was never very serious. What are some signs that it’s time to call it quits with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

As soon as the fun stopped, this celebrity couple decided to go their separate ways. But for many pairs, knowing it’s time to end a relationship isn’t that easy. Here are three signs that it’s time to call it quits:

1. The annoyances are piling up: It’s normal to have a pet peeve or two, but if everything your partner does is bothersome to you, you shouldn’t ignore your feelings. It’s one thing to be annoyed by the way he chews his food; it’s another to be bothered by how he’s always late, the way he never fixes his hair, the way he throws his dirty clothes on the floor…

2. Your lives don’t mesh: You’re always busy with work and your girlfriends. He never wants to spend his free time with you. You can’t compromise about what movie to see or what to cook for dinner. You should want to be together. If life keeps getting in the way of that, it’s a clear sign that your relationship is over.

3. You can’t see a future together: You want your relationship to have staying power. If you start to feel like you’re only living in the now and have no chance at a future life together, it’s time to say good-bye. Don’t waste your time with the wrong guy; instead, go searching for Mr. Right!
