Just yesterday, we learned that Javi Marroquin is dating Lauren Comeau, a Maine native and South Carolina resident whom he reportedly met through a mutual friend.
It seems as though the relationship is in its early days, but it also seems that both parties are very, very into it.
Javi gushed about Lauren in a recent interview with Radar Online, and now she's following suit.
Lauren spoke to the site today, and while she appears to be just as giddy as Javi, she's also not in denial about the unique difficulties of their relationship.
Comeau seems to have no plans of leaving South Carolina, and with a young son and a cushy reality TV gig, we doubt Javi will be moving relocating outside of Delaware any time soon.
That means that in addition to the challenges of Javi being a reality star with an even more famous ex, Marroquin and Comeau are dealing with the difficulties presented by a long term relationship.
“Distance isn’t ever easy,” Comeau told Radar.
“But we have a lot planned and busy schedules in between so I think we’ll handle it well.”
Comeau also opened up about the unusual way in which she and Javi met.
It seems a mutual friend introduced them online and they communicated for several weeks before meeting in person at a recent wedding.
“We connected through a mutual friend in Delaware and finally got to meet at a recent wedding,” she said.
“We clicked instantly, and just really enjoyed each other’s company. I’m excited to see what happens.”
Javi seemed equally optimistic in his own interview:
“This one feels right,” he told Radar.
He recently posted a photo of himself with Comeau, along with the following caption:
“Sometimes I wish I can go back in life, not to change sh-t just to feel a couple things twice."
Both parties say they'd like to "take things slow," but we think their actions are speaking louder than their words.
Gushing to media outlets about your new relationship doesn't smack of "taking it slow" to us.
