Lucy Hale and Colton Haynes have been denying rumors that they're secretly dating for years now. It's easy to see why fans would like to see the young stars become a couple; not only do they look great together, they also have flirty exchanges like this one on Twitter:

Pretty adorable, right?

In the past, Lucy has explained that even though she finds him "so beautiful," she's just friends with Colton, who she met on the set of The CW show Privileged.

"I don't meet a lot of genuine people in my life and he's a special kind of person, and I try to surround myself with people like that," she has said. "Although I would be very lucky to have him on my arm!"

Lucy also reveals in the new issue of Seventeen that she's a bit nervous about dating in general after her recent break-up with Chris Zylka.

"I was just telling [my best friend] the other day that I don't know what it's going to take for me to want to date someone again," she told the magazine. "It just seems so exhausting. When I like someone, I fall really hard and I invest everything. When it's gone, I'm like 'I'm never doing that again!'"
