We told you that love is strange and confusing, didn’t we? See, they’ve been friends forever, there’s nothing romantic going on.
A mere two days after it seemed that Selena Gomez, half actress and half singer, was back together with Justin Bieber, singer and half man, there are new rumors that Gomez is, in fact, dating One Direction’s merry wee Irishman, Niall Horan.
And no, Niall doesn’t have Harry Styles’s casual weirdo appeal (here’s a photo of Styles’s most recent outfit).
Frankly, I’d be kind of excited if they were dating. Sure, he’s not as smolderingly handsome as former 1Der Zayn Malik, but Zayn is possibly spoken for, so he’s out of contention. I know they’re just hedging their bets and playing it safe on the whole Bieber thing, but still.
The other thing about his news, or non-news, is that it’s forced “[S]he's still very, very single,” womp-womps TMZ.
Wouldn’t that be a nice change of pace from Justin Bieber? I think you should consider this thing, even if you really are just friends at the moment.
Unencumbered, free, living your damn life as an individual.
Some of us (cough, cough) hope to not be single when we turn 33 in a matter of months. (Says the jerk who’s been speculating about a 23-year-old’s love life for three days.) Maybe Selena Gomez is dating Justin Bieber. We shouldn’t put that kind of pressure on someone so young. So cut it out with this “very single” business, guys. Or maybe she’s dating Niall Horan, chipper blondie from the fun band. Maybe Selena Gomez is dating someone else, some kid named Ryan or Tyler whom we’ve never heard of, whom she met on Tinder or a at house party in the Valley. Selena Gomez knows some guys, and sometimes goes to dinner or drinks with them, sometimes alone, sometimes with other people. Maybe Selena Gomez is dating neither of those people. Maybe Selena Gomez doesn’t need to love anyone but herself. And while it’s fun to speculate about which cute boy she is dating, it stops being fun when people start saying that a 23-year-old is “very, very single.” So, that’s it for today. Much like in the rest of life, when it comes to Selena Gomez’s romantic status, the only thing we do know for certain is that nothing is certain.
