Cupid’s Advice:

Hayden and Brian’s brother are walking a thin line between just friends and celebrity couple. While your relationship may not be as public as Hayden and Zach’s, Cupid has some advice that will help keep gossip out of your relationship:

1. Build trust: Your relationship should be built on a solid foundation meaning that you and your partner trust each other. It’s easy to let gossip create tension in your relationship but if you truly trust your partner then the rumors and gossip will have no impact on your relationship.

People will always find something to gossip about so as long as it doesn’t change your life it’s best to just ignore it.
