“This is not a casual relationship,” the source adds. “They are taking it seriously and want it to be long-lasting.” Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are working towards taking their recently rekindled relationship to the next level.
“They will continue to travel back and forth between Los Angeles and Miami,” says the insider. “They are very happy together.”
Furthermore, Lopez and the two-time Academy Award winner, 48, are reportedly “slowly starting to talk about the future.”
The pair are prepared to make their cross-country situation work, with a source telling PEOPLE last week that Lopez and Affleck “are having fun and want to spend as much time together as possible.”
“They don’t want to hide anymore,” the insider explained. “They are both excited about their relationship. They want to make sure they do everything they can to make this work.”
A source says that the two had dinner with two others at Wolfgang Puck’s Merois on the rooftop of the Pendry hotel in West Hollywood, California, Monday night. “They looked very happy throughout the evening and Ben had his arm around J.Lo for most of the night,” the source adds. “They arrived together and left together.”
In the PDA-packed photos obtained by Page Six, Lopez can be seen cuddling close to Affleck, at one point wrapping their arms around each other as they made their way into their romantic dinner date.
