Katy Perry and John Mayer were spotted with friends at a nightclub on June 7. According to People, the two singers spent their Friday night together at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont along with around 15 other friends. It seems that Perry and Mayer are still on platonic terms, as the two sat apart all night. “I’m on the same journey as everyone else,” Mayer told Ellen Degeneres when he appeared on her show in March. “Coupling is a tricky thing.”

Cupid’s Advice:

“To date or not to date.” That is, indeed, the question that many people ask themselves about their exes, especially if they are on friendly terms with them. But how do you know if it’s the right choice? Cupid is here to help:

1. Are you better as a couple: Just because you and your ex are best friends does not mean that romance is the next logical step. Platonic compatibility and romantic compatibility are not the same thing. Before you make a move on your ex, think carefully about how you two would get along as lovers, again.

2. Are problems resolved: Think back to what caused the break up in the first place. Are those issues resolved? If not, then there is no reason to give this relationship another shot.

3. Do you have the right motives: Do you want to get back together just to be in a relationship, again? Remind yourself that it’s better to be single than to be miserable.
