Valentine's Day brings out the love in the most unexpected ways.

iCarly star Reed Alexander, who played Nevel Papperman on the Nickelodeon show, posted an adorable photo on Instagram with Stephanie Stadler. These two have been friends for awhile. But his caption is convincing fans that there is some serious chemistry between the two that goes beyond just innocent fun. Reed posted this picture with the caption, "Happy Valentine's Day ?."

Aww! While this is super cute, we're not exactly sure if these two are officially dating. They have been hanging out a lot recently and even took a trip to the Bahamas together! But, they always refer to each other as friends. It's super confusing. Not only did they take this trip to the Bahamas together, but they also rang in the New Year side by side.

There isn't any evidence of them kissing or even holding hands. It's quite possible, of course, that Reed could just be posting a photo on Valentine's Day with his best friend but according to our cultural norms – that is pretty unusual. Plus, a date AND a photo shoot in Central Park is pretty romantic. We don't know about you, but we'd probably only get this all together and make it really happen with someone we love.

The editors here at J-14 did a little bit of investigate research and searched around on Stephanie's Instagram account. As it turns out, she posts more photos of her and Reed than he does!

She posted this shot with the caption, "Surprise it's another picture with Reed."

Surprise it's another picture with Reed

Hmmm. While their bodies block the view of their hands, it kind of, sort of, maybe looks like they are clasping their fingers together. Maybe we'll get some real answers soon! Do you think they are dating or just really good friends? Our prediction is that they are dating but it may just not be super serious at the moment!
