Now that he's followed Selena Gomez on Twitter, there are (of course) new dating rumors. (Remember in 2013 when Zayn said he wanted to kiss Selena and Sel responded by saying she'd kiss Zayn?) There have also been plenty of fan reactions, from those who totally ship Zayn and Sel, to those who are for real freaking out.

I ship zayn and Selena, but I'm pretty sure I'll end up hating them (as a couple) if they ever became a couple 😅 I'm complicated af— PLEASE ZAYN (@Ziamperfections) August 11, 2015
Zayn followed Selena. I'm done.— ☡AYN (@highreszayn) August 11, 2015
Then, of course, there's speculation about why he would follow her. Is it to make Perrie jealous?
"Zayn and Kylie" "Zayn and Zendaya" "Zayn and Kendall" "Zayn and Selena" R u kidding me? Zayn broke up with Perrie like 2 seconds ago -.-— Aleisha Styles (@AleishaFincken) August 11, 2015
This roundabout reasoning suggests that since Justin Bieber had Perrie's band, Little Mix, help promote his new song, Zayn is getting back at his ex by following Justin's ex, Selena. It's honestly enough to make your head spin and your eyes roll back permanently.
zayn followed selena after perrie promoted justin's new single. i shouldn't be laughing this hard— Confessions (@honestfandom) August 10, 2015
