Seyfried: Relationship just feels right

Amanda Seyfried is glad she has her own identity “both inside and outside” her relationship with Justin Long.

The 29-year-old has been dating the Going the Distance actor since the summer of 2013. And in a new interview with US Vogue, the Mamma Mia star revealed she made the move on him via social media.

“I followed him on Instagram, and I thought something he said was really funny," she recalled. "It was a beautiful picture of a snail, and the caption said, 'F**king MOOOOOOOOVE.' It made me laugh out loud, so I texted him."

Amanda previously had a relationship with her Mamma Mia co-star Dominic Cooper, while Justin dated Drew Barrymore. However this time, the star knows things are heading in the right direction and that they have a good balance between being together and having time apart.

"I really do have my own identity, both inside and outside the relationship, if that makes any sense," she explained. "It just feels right. It's also really good to feel OK being alone."

Another factor in their relationship that works is the value they both put on family time. And Amanda has high hopes that she will have one of her own someday.

“Justin likes being at home with his parents. And I like that about him, I was in Allentown last weekend and didn't want to come back,” she said, before adding that she dreams of living in Stone Ridge, New York. “I want to have kids. And I want them to go to local schools, and there are some really good schools around here. I would like my life to be the same as it is now, but with a little less stress and a little less work."
