ryan and eva

Here’s some good news for all you Ryan Gosling lovers out there: your imaginary boyfriend and his real-life girlfriend, Eva Mendez, may be on the way to Splitsville. Maybe. Possibly. Probably not.

Global Grind reports that the couple “may be taking a break from their relationship,” which sounds very factual and reliable, if you ask me. An anonymous source has all the details– if by “details” you mean “some generic statements that could apply to most romantic relationships and have very little to do with Ryan and Eva specifically,” and if you keep in mind that “anonymous source” could very well mean “a bored pop culture reporter who’s just making shit up to fulfill their quota for the day.” Either way, the source states:

There was a realization before Thanksgiving that they took things way too fast and were rushing toward a marriage that neither of them particularly needed. They’ve decided to take a break to reevaluate their romance. Eva wanted to have his babies. The real question is how Eva is going to figure into Ryan’s plans.

Juicy! Exciting! Potentially fake!

If this were a celeb gossip tabloid, I'd comment on their NEGATIVE BODY LANGUAGE.

While I don’t know much about their relationship (I was only vaguely aware that they were going out at all, let alone considering a serious commitment), I do know that they probably deserve better than a handful of randos on the internet speculating about their personal lives. The thing that always irks me about these “anonymous sources” is that one of two upsetting things is happening: either someone’s totally making it up, as I already said, or someone close to the actors is betraying their trust for attention or money. Both options are pretty grim.

Still, if you’re a member of the Ryan Gosling Is The Love Of My Life club that seems to have a huge presence on Tumblr, maybe you’re one step closer to realizing your dream of getting cuddly with a former Mouseketeer?? I’ll consider that a win.
