Cupid's Pulse Article: Eva Mendes Gets Giggly Over Ryan Gosling on ‘Ellen’Cupid's Pulse Article: Eva Mendes Gets Giggly Over Ryan Gosling on ‘Ellen’

Actress Eva Mendes appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and she managed to keep her rumored relationship with heartthrob Ryan Gosling under wraps – sort of. The talk show host didn’t exactly assume that the couple was dating or that they’d ever even met, but she did get Mendes a gift to give to the Crazy Stupid Love actor in case she happened to run into him. Supposedly the two movie stars have something in common, and that’s their love for onesie pajamas. “Because he likes them so much, when you see him — if you see him, if you run into him — I’ve got a gift that I think both of you would have fun [with],” DeGeneres joked, according to People. “[This could] especially [work] as an icebreaker when you meet him for the first time.”

What are some ways to keep a new relationship a secret?

Cupid’s Advice:

You wouldn’t want to spoil a new relationship by letting word get out too quickly!  Cupid has some tips to keep things quiet until you’re ready to go public:

1. Location: If you’re going out on a date, don’t pick a hot spot where you know there’s the possibility of seeing friends or family. It will be fun to explore a new area and go to a restaurant that you’ve never been to before as a couple.

2. Rumor mill: The best way to prevent rumors is to withhold any kind of information that can get the mill churning. If you have friends or co-workers that you know are nosey-nellies, avoid talking about your new found crush in front of them.

3. Play it cool: When you start dating someone new it can be the only thing that’s on your mind, but if you want it kept a secret, you have to learn to be subtle. If people question you, reply with a friendly answer and nonchalant tone to make it seem like it’s not a big deal.
