On March 13, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid went ahead and shattered that illusion when they posted personal messages to fans, confirming that they have parted ways.
Malik called Hadid an incredible soul and explained that he was grateful for everyone that is respecting their decision.
He added, "I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this hard decision and our privacy at this time".
We'll keep you posted if the two decide to speak up about their relationship again.
"I'm forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons Z and I shared", the model's text-post continued. "I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have huge respect and love for".More news: Andrew Norwell to pass on Colts, sign with Jaguars

In fact, I'm willing to bet some serious money Hadid and Malik wrote these statements together and celebrated with a glass of champagne and a soft, warm hug.
The news may be as the biggest break up in social-media history, if you ask your teenagers. Sources close to the couple assure that the break up was mutual and there is no hard feelings or resentment between them.
"The reality is that they've grown apart, having been together for a long time. They have insane work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship", a source dished to the site.
He said: "When Life throws you lemons, catch em so they don't hit you in the f*****g face".
The former One Direction member started dating the American model shortly after his split with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.
