By Jessica DeRubbo

It’s official: Peter Facinelli has moved on from ex-wife Jennie Garth. The actor and his Nurse Jackie co-star Jaimie Alexander have stepped out as a new couple, according to People. The pair recently attended the Tommy Hilfiger and GQ “Men of New York” event in NYC, and Alexander gushed about her new beau. “We’ve been friends forever and had a lot of mutual friends and we reconnected in the middle of the year,” said the actress. “It was one of those things where I’d been single for a very long time and he was going through a lot. We sort of bonded.” That said, Alexander isn’t going into the relationship without reservations. “It’s very new to me and it’s scary,” she said.  “But it’s also something we don’t want to give up on because I know how it makes me feel in my heart, … It makes me feel really good.”

How do you know if your relationship is worth fighting for?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Despite obstacles, some relationships are worth putting in the time and effort to make them worth. That said, some are just the opposite and simply aren’t worth it. Cupid has some advice:

1. Your feelings: The best thing you can do is to trust your instincts and feelings. If whenever you’re with your partner you get that feeling of love in your heart, then it’s probably worth it to plow through obstacles to make your relationship work.

2. You’re on the same page: Just because you know you love your partner and want to be with him or her, that doesn’t mean your mate is on the same page. It’s important to sit down and have a very frank conversation about where each of you are in the relationship to make sure you want the same things at the same time.

3. You have enough in common: If you have very little in common with your partner, it’s probably not worth fighting for your relationship because neither one of you will be happy. In order to sustain a relationship long-term, your interests must align at least somewhat.
