But they arent letting a little thing like public perceptions from stopping them from taking it to the next level or at least thinking about it.
The Star reports that Mayer and Simpson recently visited Rome together and were seen checking out diamond rings at the local Cartier shop.
In addition, Mayer has reportedly been singing Simpsons praises to his friends and telling them shes the one he wants to settle down with.
According to insiders, Mayer says Simpson makes him laugh and has all the right ingredients to be his soul mate.
One reason why Mayer may be so gung-ho to get serious: Friends say hes always planned to have a wife and a home before he was 30 and thats six months away.
A source close to Mayer says that if he does propose, it will be low-key and the couple will hold a traditional, intimate wedding when their schedules clear up.
