Like for Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter, who despite still loving one another immensely, just can't be together because of complications and commitments in their busy lives.After dating for about two years, with the relationship apparently becoming 'on and off' towards the end, the beautiful couple decided to call it quits earlier this year, much to our dismay.A source told the Sun Online: "Ellie and Dougie were hanging out in the ceremony area after it had finished and most people had left."They continued: "Dougie was being very attentive and lent in to hug his ex and kiss her on the cheek before they headed towards the exit together.They walked separately but were very friendly and amicable with each other."This comes after both Ellie and Dougie have both spoken in the past about their continued friendship after their break-up. I need time off for my own head," she told the paper.We can't deal with our own heartbreak, never mind feeling emotionally attached to the pair still have a lot of love for each other, but it's too "hard" to maintain a relationship.God, I've got a lump in my throat just thinking about it."We love each other very much.
But now Dougie has spoken out to clarify the whole situation.
Ellie and the personal trainer were first romantically linked in November, after Bobby shared a sweet photo of the singer on social media.
But despite rumours of a romance, the Love Me Like You Do singer was reported to be single.
"They think the world of each other and are very loved-up.
Ellie's mum Tracey also really liked him, which is very important to her." The website reports that Ellie, 30, recently moved into a £6 million South London mansion.
