The couple - who have been dating for six months - have been looking for a home to share on America`s East Coast, so that Blake can commute easily to the `Gossip Girl` set in New York and they have told friends that Connecticut, one hour from the city, is the perfect location.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: "They have been looking around different areas of Connecticut for a house. Ryan is practically living with her already. When he`s at her apartment, it feels like home."
A second source added: "Blake and Ryan would like to live, as much as they can, like a normal couple. They love getting out of the city and appreciate a slower pace."
Recently Blake, 24, and 35-year-old Ryan enjoyed a relaxed weekend in New Canaan, Connecticut where they "checked out a lot of home decor stores".
The couple have previously checked out a love nest in Manhattan, when they viewed a $4.5 million apartment located between the historic Flatiron building and the Empire State Building.
A witness said: "When they`d finished looking Blake left the building first. She was wearing knee-high boots with jeans a coat and a fedora hat. She got straight into a Town Car and Ryan left shortly afterwards and got into the same car. Blake`s little dog was waiting with the driver while they looked inside the building."
The pair initially met on the set of superhero movie `Green Lantern` when Ryan was still married to Scarlett Johansson but their romance blossomed late last year.
A source said: "They became good friends on the set [of `Green Lantern`]. Now they`re both single and trying it out."
