Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez recently rekindled their relationship after a couple of years apart, and it sounds like the “Sorry” singer has really changed.

“He respected her wishes around Thanksgiving not to spend it with her family and he is respecting that she wants to slow things down to make sure everything is working out to her liking and he is giving her the space she requested.”

But, while the 23-year-old is allowing the former Disney star to figure things out, he does want to prove he’s an amazing boyfriend.

According to Hollywood Life, the “Bad Liar” songstress decided to get back together with the Biebs because of his new lifestyle.

“Justin loves how supportive Selena has been of his new healthy lifestyle,” a source revealed.

“He loves that she shows up to his hockey games and she inspires him whenever she is around. Selena brings out the best in Justin and he loves how secure she makes him feel.”

Jelena reconnected in October after the 25-year-old split from The Weeknd after about 10 months of dating.  

“Justin has been listening to Selena after work everyday as she shares about her challenges and the progress of her day,” the source continued.  

“Thanks to healthy communication, they are stronger than ever.”

However, though things seem to be good between the former Disney star and the 23-year-old, there are members of Selena’s family who do not approve of their rekindled romance.

In fact, the “What Do You Mean” hitmaker decided to not join her family for Thanksgiving.

“There is a good amount of Selena‘s family that don’t like Justin and are trying to figure everything out on their reconciliation,” a source previously said.

“Justin decided to not ruffle any feathers and had Selena visit her family without him because he can see her a lot more than they do and he also didn’t want to be the reason that people had a bad holiday.”

The Canada native and the actress began dating in 2010 and were on-and-off until 2015.

“He is trying to make the right decisions and get back into her family’s good graces and not showing up for Thanksgiving or taking her away to do their own thing was an important thing to do this year,” the source said.

“It’s all about baby steps with Justin this time around.”
