It seems that Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo just can’t decide what they want. They dated for several years and then broke up early in the summer. Then they were seen out once together just recently making out and clearly not caring who was in the room or who saw them doing what. Now, they’ve been seen everywhere together but are denying that they are together. According to reports, they are just ‘hanging out’ and ‘aren’t exclusive.’ Yep, they want to have their cake and eat it too. Meanwhile, I’m still shaking my head wondering why on earth we care about what Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are doing. From People,
“Some couples just can’t stay apart – just ask Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, who’ve been spotted rekindling their romance in three different cities in the last week.
The couple, who split in June after three years together, were spotted last weekend in Los Angeles making out in a booth at the bar Dime, completely unaware of anything in the world except each other.
Then, on Wednesday, the couple took it to the East Coast, where they hit a party at the bar McFadden’s with Entourage star Kevin Connolly. Lachey, 35, and Minnillo, 28, called it a night early and left at the unfashionable hour of 9 p.m.
Just the next day, the pair decided to spread the love to the Midwest, and were spotted together at Cincinnati’s new hot spot, The Righteous Room.
But don’t call them boyfriend-girlfriend just yet, a friend of the couple’s tells PEOPLE.
“Nick and Vanessa are not officially back together, but they’re hanging out,” the source says. “They’ll see what happens. Maybe a reconciliation will happen, but they’re not exclusive right now.”
So it sounds like one of them wants commitment and one doesn’t. One is on the marriage path and the other isn’t. So which one is it? Is Nick pushing to take things further or is it Vanessa? It doesn’t really matter. When you’ve been together for three years and then break up, there’s no going back to casual dating. Relationships are meant to go forward, not back. Whether they’re back together or just hanging out, it’s not going to last for very long.
