Here’s Why Sarah Hyland’s Ex Needs to Pay Attention to Her New Relationship

By  | 

Last summer, the world was rocked by the news of Sarah Hyland‘s split from longtime boyfriend Matt Prokop. They seemed so cute together when they were out in public, but no one knew what went on behind closed doors. A month after the couple called it quits, word got out that the Modern Family actress was abused by her Geek Charming co-star for the majority of their 5-year relationship. She was even granted a permanent restraining order against her former love.

But the torture appears to be all in the past for the 24-year-old star as she’s been dating her 25-year-old Vampire Academy co-star, Dom Sherwood, for roughly four months now, and their romance is nothing short of endearing. A month after they went public, the couple got matching tattoos (not that we’d recommend that, but it’s still worth noting). Then, more recently, after spending some time apart since he was cast as the male lead in the Mortal Instruments TV show, Shadowhunters, they’ve proven that their love can go the distance — literally.

This week, Sarah appeared on the Toronto TV set of the upcoming ABC Family show, and Dom could not help but contain his surprise and elation, and took off running to embrace her:

Soon after, he Instagrammed about their adorable reunion:

One day later, Sarah’s ex just so happened to tweet about a lost relationship:

It wasn’t exactly a sentimental statement, but the regret is there nonetheless. Maybe he should start paying attention to Sarah’s new relationship; he clearly needs some pointers.
