Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are dating, or at least that's the impression I'm getting from their faces and tongues constantly being smashed together. And while some people are convinced their relationship is nothing more than an elaborate PR stunt to make "Señorita" the song of the summer, You! Cannot! Deny! that Shawn and Camila are hooking up. Truly, no town in Florida is safe, and scrolling Instagram is basically NSFW at this point...especially if you follow Shawn and Camila fan accounts, which I definitely do as an adult woman.
But come on, who can be blamed for shipping a celebrity relationship when it’s this insanely extra?
Exactly. If you, too, need more clarity on how these two went from just friends to nonstop PDA, here's a quick timeline of their relationship.

Apparently, the two are now "committed to working on a relationship." Wow!! "Shawn and Camila originally were just enjoying spending time together and having a summer fling," the source said. "Shawn and Camila have really fallen for one another." Ugh, be still my beating heart—it's all too much to bear!
P.S. We'll be updating this timeline because something tells me this is only the beginning.
