For about three years there wasn't any news of Rashida being romantically involved. But in 2009, she came forth with her relationship with presidential speechwriter Jon Favreau. They were together for a year.
After her relationship with Jon, there was a rumor that Rashida hooked up with Garrett Hedlund, an American actor known for his roles in the films Friday Night Lights in 2011.

However, the couple has not hit the news ever since they opened up about their relationship. And bearing Rashida's history with men, it cannot be said if the couple is still dating or have already walked in different ways.
Will She Ever Marry?
Rashida Jones, who played the role of Karen in The Office, has been romantically involved with many men but she has yet to settle with commitments with any one of them. Even though she has been engaged twice before, she has not yet exchanged the wedding vows.
Rashida spoke to Madamenoire in 2014 and discussed her unmarried status. She opened up about not being married and stated that it was once hard for her to digest. But now, she has come in terms with not having husband and children. She clearly stated her stance on getting married and said,
"I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids – it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.”
It turns out she no longer believes in the bonds of marriage. Rashida when asked if she is ever going to married, she replied saying wedding tags are not what makes a happy couple and a happy family. She said,
" Marriage doesn't really buy you anything. It just buys you a really big s--tty pageant of a wedding to make other people happy."
Well, it seems she is living a content life without the burden of married label weighing down on her.
