Lea Michele’s dating history can be summed up in one word: scandalous. Her longtime boyfriend Cory Monteith tragically died of an overdose, which left her reeling. When she finally re-entered the dating world, she found herself in a long-term relationship with an ex-gigolo. But it looks like she has finally found a nice, normal guy in Robert Buckley.
The two were spotted on a date recently in Santa Monica. They cozied up to a bar together, and according to insiders, couldn’t keep their hands off each other. The most notable observation, though, was how much of a gentleman Buckley was. Onlookers all commented on his chivalry throughout the date.
Now, I’m not suggesting that a person can’t be both an addict and a gentleman. Friends of Monteith’s had nothing but glowing things to say about him and how nice he was. But I am saying that it’s probably good for Michele to find a partner who doesn’t have gigantic skeletons in his closet. She has been through enough for her 29 years. A man like Buckley who doesn’t demand the spotlight or have a sordid past will give her a chance to enjoy an easy relationship.
His past and current employment is also very easy to confirm. Buckley spent several years as one of the stars of One Tree Hill, The CW’s hit drama starring Sophia Bush, and is currently on the show iZombie. So definitely no sketchy professions in his past.
Fans have noticed the two liking each other’s Instagram posts lately and have suspected a relationship budding, but this recent date has confirmed their suspicions. Neither actor has confirmed what’s going on, but Instagram official is basically all we need at this point.
We’ll have to wait and see if this relationship takes off, but I’m rooting for them. Michele deserves something easy for now.
