“Pete is constantly texting, Googling and talking about Kim,” confides the source. “He is obsessed with her and desperately trying to transform a few fun days into a life together forever."
According to the insider, this behavior mimics Davidson's modus operandi with another famous face: “This feels like Ariana Grande part 2. He gets obsessed with girls and is already talking about marriage.” (The King of Staten Island star, 27, and "7 rings" singer, 28, embarked on a whirlwind romance, and were briefly engaged in 2018.)

The next night, the two hung out with a group of pals at Zero Bond in New York City while the reality star was in town for The Wall Street Journal's 2021 Innovator Awards.
Though many would assumed the possible flames have taken things to the next level, the source says that's not the case. “They haven’t even kissed yet,” adds a friend of Kardashian. “They certainly have not spent a night together. After dinner in Staten Island, Kim returned to her hotel in midtown and the next night it was a group date where they was lots of flirting but nothing more."
Playing coy was the right move, says the source: “The best advice for Pete is to cool his jets. Kim isn’t divorced from Kanye [West] yet. The last thing she needs in her life right now is another super intense guy."
"At first, all the attention was flattering," adds the source, "but now it’s just a turn-off.”
