It hasn’t even been a year since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner separated, and the couple has already been the topic of more reconciliation rumors than One Direction.

Of course, it doesn’t help that Affleck and Garner still hang out all the time and may even be attending marriage counseling together.

First we heard that Jen was trying to win Ben back.

Now, the tabloids have turned the tables, and Ben is the one trying to save the marriage.

Whatever the case, it looks like these two are back on, and Star magazine reports that they’re making no effort to conceal their rekindled romance.

“Ben’s been inundating Jen with compliments and flowers, anything to win her over and win her back,” says one insider.

The source adds that the couple recently “sealed the deal" with a "romantic date night" in Santa Monica.

“It was all about them. There were no distractions, no calling, no texting. They ordered from the Secret Kitchen menu – there are no prices listed, but appetizers are about $100 each.”

There you have it, fellas. The way back into any girl’s heart is with ludicrously overpriced apps.

Apparently it worked on Jen:

“She seemed almost first-date giddy," says the source.

“They’ve vowed to have more date nights. That one was the epitome of romance, and it really opened Jen’s eyes to what they could have again. Slowly but surely, she’s seen a change in ben, who has realized he made a monumental mistake – and her heart has begun to melt.”

Wow. "The epitome of romance," eh? Sounds like Ben learned a thing or two from six months of pretending to be Bruce Wayne.

Now the the only question is: can the marriage survive Ben’s inevitable "doing battle with an evil clown" phase?
