Don't call it a rebound. After being seen together in Miami and then spotted on what was clearly a date night in Los Angeles, a source close to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck says that the two are "slowly starting to talk about the future."

Page Six reports that the two enjoyed a meal together at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant inside the Pendry Hotel West Hollywood. The two dressed down for the occasion, with Lopez wearing a pink turtleneck and her hair in a messy topknot while Affleck kept things decidedly low-key in a leather jacket. Onlookers noted that the two held hands as they entered the restaurant and Lopez "nuzzled" her head against Affleck's chest as they had dinner.

People adds that friends think that the two could be moving towards something more serious, with a source noting that they're anything but "casual" and that they're taking things "seriously."

"They will continue to travel back and forth between Los Angeles and Miami," the source added. "They are very happy together. This is not a casual relationship. They are taking it seriously and want it to be long-lasting." (These are the keys to making a long-distance relationship work.)

The L.A. sighting comes after Lopez's coffee date with ex Marc Anthony at the W Hotel in Miami Beach and Affleck-adjacent workout at Anatomy Gym. Of course, Lopez die-hards are following the relationship closely, hoping that 2021 Bennifer works out a little differently than it did back in the '00s. Based on astrology and what people are seeing every time they head out together, things seem meant to be.

"They were holding hands, hugging, kissing. They weren't trying to hide the fact that they were together," a source told People after they were seen in Florida. "They are very much into each other and being together."
