After another month of this, boy and girl rarely see each other and hardly ever talk. Simply put, hanging out had become a habit too hard to break. I go to volleyball matches with my buddies and get sushi every Thursday night after Institute. Getting to know one another in a casual environment is a great chance to break the ice and become friends first. They hang out at birthday parties, movie nights, and pool parties. There’s lots of texting and chatting on the phone, but still no date. It was me.) Hang-out buddies clearly interested in one another.For many young single and even mid-single adults, the practice of dating has been replaced with the practice of hanging out. The guys like to be around the girls, and the girls like to chill with the guys. But as wonderful as hanging out can be, it can lead to some pitfalls.
Since then, the public Jelena moments have been rare (the two in church the same day; Gomez complimenting Bieber for his One Love Manchester performance during a June radio interview), but the ice has privately been thawing.
Gomez, who's dating The Weeknd now, and Bieber, who's maybe dating Paola Paulin, are apparently hanging again, TMZ reports.
