Turns out, it was just a friendly outing and not a date. But you can't blame fans for wanting to hook these two up, can you?
Demi and Niall finally met in person at the 2012 VMAs after becoming friends online, even going out for dinner together at Pink Taco in Century City after the awards show.
While sources tell E! News that Niall and Demi were on an "intimate date," we're not so sure it was all that serious.
Demi has brushed off the rumors several times over in a number of interviews, saying this summer, "No, I'm not [with him]. He's really sweet and he's one of my really good friends now. But I'm single at the moment. And I plan to be for a long time because I need to focus on my career and myself and my well-being before I think about getting in a relationship with anyone."
Meanwhile, Niall continues to name Demi as his celeb crush--check out One Direction in the clip below:
