After several years of trying to keep her dating life under wraps, Jennifer Aniston made the decision last week to go public with her new man, Justin Theroux. So, why the change of heart?

"Justin is ready to take their relationship public," a source told UsMagazine.com. "She doesn't want him to get frustrated with her usual covert way of doing things, so she's compromising and relaxing about the paparazzi."

After first going public at an MTV Movie Awards after party on Sunday, the couple was also spotted enjoying a three-hour dinner at the Tower Bar in L.A. And for the first time, they left in the same car. The last time they ate there, they arrived separately even though they were both coming from Aniston's house.
