According to E!Online.comthe celebrity news is that Brad Pitt is slowly dipping his toes into the celebrity dating pool. The 46-year old actor is adapting to being single and seeing his family. Pitt stays busy by meeting with his large group of guy friends, none of them in the business, riding his motorcycle, and having regular dinner and lunch meetings. Though Pitt doesn’t see his six kids as much as he wants, he has been filling his time with family, including going back to his Missouri and Oklahoma roots. As far as dating? This recently divorced celebrity says it’s complicated and not a priority.

This celebrity news shows us celebs aren’t immune to having to adjust. What are some ways to know you’re ready to get back into the dating scene when you have kids?

Cupid’s Advice:

Balance is key when you’re a single parent. You have to make sure you balance the demands of your career with the demands of your family. Maintaining a house, both the operations and finances, alone can be a challenge. Somewhere in there, of course, you need to be able to take care of yourself. Here’s Cupid’s dating advice to help you get ready for dating again:

1. Balance career: If you were the main bread-winner, maintaining the house and investing in your family was on the back burner because you had someone else helping you. When suddenly your support is gone, having the mental and physical energy to still invest in your career in addition to your new responsibilities can be daunting. Make sure your career is in a place where you can take some focus away and instead invest in yourself and a relationship.

2. Are your kids ready: With a large brood of kids like Brad Pitt, getting back into dating can be a lot harder. Each age range of childhood processes divorce differently, so each child will vary on their resistance to a parent returning to dating. As a parent, be ready for that resistance, but make sure you’re caring for your children, too.

3. Length of relationship: Depending on the length of your marriage, you may need more time to cope post-divorce. Shared affairs, such a mortgages and finances, can be hard to unravel and separate. Aside from that, the emotional aspect of becoming suddenly single can be a shock. As fun as dating can be again, if you’re looking for something more serious, consider giving yourself the adequate amount of time to heal and the appropriate length of courting before claiming a relationship is serious.

As a single parent, how have you decided when it was the right time to start dating again? Share your dating advice below!

New year, new Kim? Kind of! According to EOnline.com, Kim Kardashian has been very open with the changes she hopes to make in 2018 on her exclusive app. In the video, Kardashian states her main goal “is to be on my phone less and more in the moment.” She also hopes to up her fitness game and work out five to six days a week with her trainer. 2018 will certainly be a huge year for Kardashian and her husband Kanye West, as they will soon be welcoming another celebrity baby via surrogate, too!

This celebrity news shows us that even celebrities like Kim Kardashian plan to make big changes with the new year. How can you stick to your resolutions once you’ve committed to them?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s easy to make resolutions at the beginning of the year, but it’s not always easy sticking to them. In fact, most people ditch their big resolutions before January even ends. If you’re hoping to make sure your big changes stick, check out these tips straight from Cupid:

1. Re-frame the “resolution”: Resolutions rarely see life past January is because of the immense pressure to strictly abide to them. If there is even a small deterrent, most people give up because they aren’t perfecting their goal. Try re-framing and leave room for error. For example, if you want to lose weight, instead of saying “I will lose 20 pounds this year,” say “I want to change my eating habits and focus on my overall health.” The two coincide, and it’s more likely you’ll have more success!

2. Don’t be afraid to restart: Slip-ups are inevitable, so don’t beat yourself up over them! With 52 weeks and 365 days, you would be insane not to stray from your big resolution. When you do stray (notice: “when” and not “if”!) know that your next choice/decision is an opportunity to get back to your goal. It’s better to have a slow and steady progression, rather than no progress or even backtracking and giving up completely!

3. Have a support system: Lean on others for support. It’s not a sign of weakness, rather, it’s a sign of strength! When you tell others about your goals, they will want to help encourage you and help keep you accountable. Making others proud is always a very empowering motivator, so you should definitely consider this option!

By Karley Kemble

Though Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged, the celebrity couple is in no rush to walk down the aisle. According to UsMagazine.com, sources close to Cyrus and Hemsworth say that pair is happy with the way their relationship is, and “have zero plans of having an actual wedding.” In fact, the celebrity couple already “considers themselves married” because of how long they’ve been together! Cyrus and Hemsworth announced their reengagement in 2016, following a two-year break. Hopefully, we’ll see a celebrity wedding from them someday!

This celebrity couple isn’t going to be heading down the aisle anytime soon. What are some reasons to hold off on marriage?

Cupid’s Advice:

While you may feel pressured to plan your wedding right after you and your partner become engaged, it’s important to keep your wants and needs in mind. Long engagements are perfectly okay! Here are some reasons to consider pressing pause on your future walk down the aisle:

1. It saves money: Sometimes, it’s financially smart for you and your partner to have a long engagement to save money for your big day. No matter the size of the wedding, they can be quite costly. Invites, rental spaces, dresses – they all add up very quickly. Ease the financial burden and take your time!

2. It grows your relationship: When you prolong your engagement, you can truly get to know your partner better because it allows for time spent together in a different light. Though you aren’t rushing to get married, it’s eventually the endgame, so you’ll spend more time focusing on your future wedding – and ultimately your longer future together!

3. It prevents stress: Wedding planning is stressful and may seem impossible at times. Long engagements help prevent stress because it provides a more open and flexible timeline. Plus, you might even be able to score a few discounts if you book your venues far enough in advance!

Celebrity News: ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Lala Kent’s Married Boyfriend Is Identified

By Karley Kemble

From an abrupt reality show exit, to a mystery boyfriend, Lala Kent is causing quite the commotion these days. The reality star was mum about her boyfriend on the most recent season of Vanderpump Rules, but the latest celebrity news surrounding Kent has brought a name to the surface. EOnline reveals that Kent has indeed been dating television producer Randall Emmett for the last year and a half. Rumors surrounding the celebrity couple have been floating around for a few months, and the pair was seen kissing at a FabFitFun event in Beverly Hills earlier this month. The couple’s relationship has been a subject of criticism since Emmett is still legally married to his wife, though he has been in the process of receiving a divorce.

This celebrity news may not be appreciated by the married boyfriend in question. What are some ways to make sure your love interest is truly unattached?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s not fun to deal with others’ emotional baggage. Though your partner may claim to be unattached to their ex, there’s always a possibility they still could be. Cupid has some signs to look out for:

1. They’ve purged their social media: This may seem like a small detail, but it speaks volumes. One hand they’re just pictures, but it could also indicate that they have some unresolved feelings about their ex. Photos are nostalgic – so your partner might just be nostalgic about their past love.

2. They talk about them nonstop: People want to talk about topics they’re interested in, people they like, or things that are on their mind. If your partner brings up an ex a little more than what seems normal, it’s likely that they are still emotionally attached. Don’t overlook it or take it lightly

3. Your relationship feels forced: Your relationship should never feel forced or like a chore. You should always feel a natural connection and feel inclined to confide in your significant other. When you feel like your partner is forcing their feelings toward you, it is probably a sign to take a closer look at what’s really going on.

By Karley Kemble

Taylor Swift is infamous for being dramatic about her exes. If 2017 has shown us anything, it’s that Swift is tired of being defined by the media. From winning a defining court case as a victim of sexual assault, to releasing her sixth album, Swift’s past reputation is slowly, but surely being forgotten. In the latest celebrity news, one of Swift’s closest friend Todrick Hall has revealed some vulnerable details about her most recent celebrity ex, reports EOnline.com. According to Hall, Swift would “hunch over” at the mere mention of her ex’s name – so he edited a photo of her to look like Quasimodo and told her, “You cannot turn into Quasimodo for this guy. Every time you say his name, you hunch over.” Though her most recent relationship ended with a break-up, Hall said that his bestie is happier than ever with her current beau, Joe Alwyn.

In celebrity news, even Taylor Swift fell victim to an unhealthy relationship. What are some ways to know you’re in an unhealthy relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Unhealthy relationships are emotionally draining, and it’s best to end them before things worsen. If you think you might be in an unhealthy relationship, read these tips from Cupid:

1. They’re too attached: Sure, it’s normal to be a little clingy to your partner, but there is a line that must be drawn. Make sure you are aware of the differences between healthy attachment and emotional manipulation. Phrases like “I’ll die if you ever break up with me” should never be taken lightly. Emotional manipulation is never, ever okay.

2. They constantly blame you: If your partner finds a way to spin every argument or disagreement you have and makes you feel like the bad guy, that is a telling sign of an unhealthy relationship. You are entitled to your feelings and opinions, and your partner should never invalidate you for being too sensitive or for overreacting. Beware of this if it arises.

3. You’re changing for the wrong reasons: You and your partner should bring out the best in each other. Any changes you make in your life should always be because you want to – not because you think it’s what your partner would want for you. It’s cliché, but staying true to your core values is important, and you should never lose sight of that!

Have you or somebody close to you been in an unhealthy relationship? How did it end?

In the latest celebrity news, Jaime Foxx may have just turned 50, but he is not showing any signs of slowing down! According to People.com, Foxx and girlfriend Katie Holmes celebrated the big five-oh with some friends in their inner-circle. The celebrity couple was seen walking into his big bash at Paramount Pictures together! Sources who were at the party said the duo appeared to have a great time at the party and spent very little time apart from each other. Foxx and Holmes have kept their relationship quiet from the onset of the rumors – but have been seen out and about with each other since 2013.

This celebrity couple has stayed almost entirely out of the limelight. What are some ways to keep your relationship on the down-low?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, it’s better to keep your relationship between you and your partner. If you’re looking to keep your relationship quiet for the time being, read these tips straight from Cupid:

1. Keep it offline: In a world ruled by social media, it’s important to refrain from posting or sharing anything related to your personal relationship! While your personal life might not be as documented by the tabloids, people in your news feeds will definitely talk and share the news with those around them. If you don’t want others to know, keep it off the Internet until you’re ready.

2. Stay in on weekends: Weekends are the days when most people go out, so if you’re wanting to keep your relationship quiet, it’s better to stay in. If you and your partner want to do things together out in public, there always is a risk of seeing somebody you know. Have day dates (if you can) or go out during the weekday, when most people are at home!

3. Don’t talk: Loose lips sink ships! If you feel like your best friend or members of your family will spread the news of your new relationship to everyone in their general vicinity, don’t share it with them! It’s your relationship so if you’re not ready to talk about it – you don’t have to.

In celebrity news, Meghan Markle will officially be joining Prince Harry and the royal family for Christmas, according to UsMagazine.com. “You can expect to see The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day,” said a Kensington Palace spokesperson. Markle does not have family in the UK, but the Royals are practically her family now due to the celebrity couple’s engagement. They are currently planning their royal celebrity wedding!

Megan Markle is adapting to royal traditions. What are some ways to combine holiday traditions with your partner’s? Cupid has some advice!

Cupid’s Advice:

Adopting another person’s traditions can be hard, especially if you and your partner aren’t into the same things. It could be religious traditions that drive you nuts, or maybe your partner is a Scrooge, but transitioning from just your family’s holiday traditions to your S.O.’s is hard. Read Cupid’s advice to help you and your love have a stress-free holiday:

1. Be flexible: A consensus is ideal, but many times we have to compromise or make certain sacrifices. Plans can also be modified to accommodate both parties. Do what you can do, but remember to accept what you may not be able to change. Also, don’t forget to keep a positive mind!

2. Plan: Planning is essential. Planning is life (being a little dramatic, but for good reason). Start your planning ahead of time, and keep an open line of communication. Figure out what you both prefer and what you both are willing to compromise on.

3. Be patient and open-minded: It’s easier said than done, but during this integration process, you must be both patient and open-minded. Remember, that after all your planning and compromises, you will still have a magnificent holiday with the ones you love. Change does not equal a bad experience. Many times, change is good.
