Question on everyone's mind: Is Shawn Mendes perfect human, single? Answer: Unclear, so the time has come to investigate by going on an emotionally exhaustive and extremely attractive journey through his relationship history.
The bad news: your name is not on this list. BUT THERE'S HOPE. The good news: everything else happening here, starting, of course, with Shawn's most recent rumored fling: Camila Freakin' Cabello.
Shawn and Camila just released their new song "Señorita," and it's...to put it bluntly...incredibly hot. So hot that it's made everyone thirsty to the point of being parched, and people are quenching said thirst by assuming Shawn and Camila are dating. Like, can you blame them?
And sure, you might say THIS IS JUST ACTING, but may I present Exhibit B: the behind-the-scenes video. The sexual tension and chemistry are so intense I literally have to take a break to cool off, bye.
But if you need more convincing that things are ~happening~, there's the fact that Camila just broke up with her boyfriend of more than a year, Matthew Hussey. Just saying!
Shawn and Hailey have been tight-lipped about whether or not they were actually together, but let's be real: they were. Sadly, poor sweet Shawn was collateral damage in Hailey's relationship with Justin Bieber, by which I mean she was married to the Biebs within months of their split. It's fine, SHAWN IS FINE.
Anyway, Hailey and Shawn's "relationship" goes back to 2013, when Hailey sent Shawn a thirsty tweet asking him to date her. Turns out that works super well for some people! (Not me.)
Flash-forward to 2017 and they started flirting on Twitter. And I use the term "flirting" loosely, because basically what we have here is them both tweeting the same thing at the same time. Wow, move over, Shakespeare, this is romance!
In November, the pair were spotted getting handsy at Kylie Jenner's Halloween party (the place where all love stories begin), and in December, TMZ posted pics of them cuddling in Toronto, which some people (read: no one) say is the Paris of Canada:
Shawn and Hailey spent about a year denying they were dating, and then were all "f*ck it" and hit the 2018 Met Gala.
But they continued to deny they were dating, and eventually, Hailey was seen making out literally all over the world (nowhere was safe!) with Justin Bieber. The rest, as they say, is history.

Shawn and Chloë were *rumored* to be dating back in 2016—but to be honest, this was all just based on some tweets, so don't get too excited:
Chloë was in an on-and-off relationship with Brooklyn Beckham at the time, so chances are this was just some spontaneous social media flirting.
And finally, Andrea Russet
Again, not actually a couple—but Shawn wanted to be! In 2013, he tweeted THIS at her:
Flash-forward six years, and she was just all:
