Selena Gomez's Relationship With Nick Jonas Was 'Puppy Love'

'It was very sweet. He’s lovely,' she said.

Now that Selena Gomez is single, whenever she hangs out with or steps out with a male friend, people instantly think they are dating.

She had to shut down the rumors when she was hanging out with Charlie Puth, and now she's talking about the time she was spotted out with her ex boyfriend, Nick Jonas. The "Good For You" singer and Nick dated back in 2008, but still have remained friends...and only friends.

“We were babies!” Selena told Capital FM. “We actually caught up the other day, and it’s really fun to be able to do that. That, to me, was like puppy love. It was very sweet. He’s lovely. I do have a love for him for sure.”

Nick and Selena were spotted at an after-party for the 2015 VMAs, where they were caught whispering to each other, and while many tried to figure out what they were talking about, Sel finally revealed what was said.

"We were actually talking about the event for a little bit because I didn't see him there, and I told him I liked his performance," she said to Clevver news. "Then, I said hi to Joe [Jonas], so we were talking. But we grew up together! You know, it's so nice to be able to see people and talk about life. I mean, I've seen him a couple times but evidentially that photo was crazy. But it was great to be able to reflect on your life. It's like high school in a way. I love them, they're the greatest, honestly."
