“They’re really entering the comfortable stage of their relationship,” a source close to Rodgers tells PEOPLE. “They’re really getting to know each other, and they really love the time they spend together. It’s a special time for them both, when everything’s new and fresh and interesting”
The couple hasn’t been shy about their budding relationship. Earlier this year, Patrick, 35, confirmed the relationship to the Associated Press, adding that the new couple had known each other for years after meeting at 2012 ESPY Awards. Last month, the couple showed some public affection when he kissed her before she competed in the final Daytona 500 race of her career.
“They’re really into each other,” says the insider. “They spend a lot of time together, and they just have so much in common. They’re both athletes, they both like to compete. So they have a lot to talk about. It’s different than a lot of his other relationships.”

“That was a relationship where they drifted apart because they just didn’t have a ton in common,” says the source. “That’s not an issue here. They have so much common ground; every day is a new discovery. They just have the same outlook and goals, and for right now, they’re very happy together.”
