Remember when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were dating? No? Understandable, because it was literally a million years ago and everyone has moved on. Everyone except Justin Bieber, that is, who's continuing to just do the most when it comes to winning back his first love. He's basically shipping his own relationship, which is  super meta if you think about it hard enough, which you definitely shouldn't.

Anyway, despite Selena making it pretty clear (opens in new tab) that, yes, it is too late to say sorry now, Justin appears to have followed her on Instagram—a platform he initially stopped following her on in November 2014.

Selena has yet to follow Justin back, but his feelings have been clear for some time. Back in January, the tree-climbing Canadian said this (opens in new tab) about his ride-or-die: "What is she trying to do to my heart right now? I'm just kidding. She loves me. I love her, too, always. I just want her to be happy. I love [Selena]."

Selena, if you're out there, please follow Justin Bieber back on Instagram, bless his poor heart.
