Looks like Eva Longoria wasn't Ready for Love, after all.
The former Desperate Housewives star, 38, has split with Honduran hunk Ernesto Arguello, 34, after dating for nearly four months, PEOPLE has confirmed.
"Eva is hard at work producing in Los Angeles, and Ernesto's work is based out of Honduras and Panama, which made their schedules difficult to coordinate," a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. "They remain very good friends and adore each other through it all."

Eva Longoria just confirmed her relationship with Miami entrepreneur and philanthropist Ernesto Arguello, and now a source close to the Honduran hunk says things between the couple are quite serious.
"It's very real – they're both in love, which is rare for him," the source tells PEOPLE of the couple who were together over the holiday in Austin, where they spent time with pals from Ready for Love. "They're always traveling together. His family likes her a lot ... they've never seen him so taken by someone."
The duo met last year when he was cast in the reality show Longoria, 38, produced. They shot down rumors that they were dating this spring, but Longoria admitted this week that their friendship eventually blossomed into something more – and the source says it could potentially be something permanent, despite their failed relationships in the past.

Three months ago, rumors swirled that actress Eva Longoria was dating Miami-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Ernesto Arguello. While it wasn't true at the time, it is indeed the case now, the actress tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"I think that's why our relationship is so special – we truly started as friends,” says Longoria, 38, who met Arguello, 34, last year when he was cast in Ready For Love, the reality dating show she produced. (Arguello's romance with his pick, former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey, ended in 2012.)
While the show aired this spring, buzz swept Hollywood that the two were an item. However, it wasn't until recently that their friendship turned romantic.
