Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together. The couple laid to rest speculations about their dating status with a kiss at a hockey game recently.

However, days before confirming they have indeed reignited their romance, they were spotted hanging out in parks, grabbing lunches and attending church services together.

While the two lovebirds have been spending a lot of time together in the recent weeks, always being together is not possible. And, as the story goes, Gomez, 25, had to leave Bieber, 23, to attend the 2017 Fashion Awards on 4 December in London.

Staying apart can become tough for people who are newly in love or like Gomez and Bieber, who are once again dating after ending their 4-year romance in 2014.

Gomez is reportedly missing Bieber as she is oceans apart from her boyfriend. Although the couple is said to be always Facetime, Gomez is reportedly feeling the pain of not being with her boyfriend.

"Selena has been a bit bummed since her time out of the states and away from Justin. She misses him dearly and the time apart has helped her realize how important he is to her," a source told HollywoodLife.

The source added, "Selena felt the need to pull back a little but that has only made things more clear in her mind. Selena has a strong love and bond for Justin. She wanted alone time, got it, and it was what she needed. It has helped her learn about herself and how much Justin means to her. She genuinely misses him and can't wait to get back to him."

Speaking to Billboard magazine, Gomez recently admitted to getting back together with Bieber, saying, "I'm 25. I'm not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life." She appears on the latest cover of the music magazine and has been named the magazine's Woman of the Year.
