Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long first got together during the summer of 2013
“The truth is that they actually split up around 2 months ago and never lived together,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They both tried very hard to make it work because they each wanted to eventually have a family but ultimately they weren’t compatible and decided to split up. They are still on good terms and friends.”
“I followed him on Instagram and I thought something he said was really funny,” she said. “It was a picture of a snail, and the caption said, ‘F—ing MOOOOOOOOVE.’ It made me laugh out loud so I texted him.”
Earlier this year, Seyfried posted a funny picture on Instagram to wish Long a happy 37th birthday, writing “Happy Birthday Hunk!”
The couple kept their romance low-key – from dog walking to reality-TV binge-watching, Seyfried previously said that she and Long were happy not doing much.
