Are they or aren’t they? That’s the big question surrounding the quasi-maybe-kinda relationship between Demi Lovato and One Direction‘s Niall Horan. Demi and Niall were both pretty coy for a long time when it came to rumors of a romance between them. But then, when the X Factor premiered, we thought we finally got a straight answer when Demi denied the relationship on camera.

Well, now, we’re just not so sure. Demi recently said a few things that make it sound like she and Niall might be a (kind of) couple after all.

“He has a lot of great qualities,” she gushed when asked about the Irish hottie. “He is an amazing listener and makes me laugh a lot, two of the main qualities I look for.”

Okay, if that doesn’t sound confusing enough, get read for what Demi said next.

“He knows I have a little crush on him, and we enjoy having dinner when we get the chance. We speak and message all the time. I don’t want a relationship over Skype; we are both in a place where we feel zero pressure to rush. We share the philosophy that the right one is worth waiting for.”

Is it just us, or are the Nemi rumors officially back on? Tell us what you think about Demi’s Niall talk in the comments and on Twitter!
