Jennifer Lopez is not quite ready to give her heart to someone else, despite others' desires.

According to E! News, a source says former Dancing with the Stars pro, Cheryl Burke, wants the "First Love" singer and her friend Maksim Chmerkovskiy to make it official already.

J.Lo and Burke apparently "have been talking a lot and [Lopez] thinks he is great, but she is being very careful," a source told E! "She does not want to get her kids involved in meeting another guy yet."

The 45-year-old mother of two and 34-year-old Chmerkovskiy were first linked in June after People reported that the pair were "friends and have been talking."

"This is so new," E! News' source said. "There has been a date here and there, but really they are good friends before anything else. Maks asks her for advice and she thinks he is super-talented and very hot. Obviously that is hard to ignore."

"They do text and communicate and she is open to dating in general right now," the source added. "She still believes true love exists and wants to find that someday."

The DWTS dancing pro was by Lopez's side helping her ring her 45th birthday last week and the two were reportedly very "affectionate" with each other.
