Nick Jonas Is Not Dating Kendall Jenner, & Here Are 9 Social Media Hints That They Were On Two Different Paths, Anyway

You know what happens when we assume? We make a couple out of two celebrities who aren't even dating. According to E! Online, Nick Jonas and Kendall Jenner are not a couple. How do they know that? Well, because they talked to Jonas himself. So, yeah. It's really not happening. It was totally all in our heads. We're crazy. And, before you get all defensive wearing your "Nick and Kendall Forever" shirts, he didn't offer up a lame excuse, either, like most celebs tend to do when they're hiding a relationship they want to keep under wraps for the moment. His explanation just honestly makes sense.

He told E! Online,

We're not dating. Kendall is great and naturally with her being good friends with Gigi [Hadid] and with Joe [Jonas] and Gigi dating, there are times we'll be in the same place and we all hang out.

If you're sitting there, begrudgingly buying into his story that they aren't dating, but aren't really getting why, he's got an answer for you skeptics, too:

I'm trying to take the time to walk out this next phase of my life and be single the right way. I [also] like being able to work as hard as I want. I'm incredibly driven and with all the projects I have going on, they take up a lot of my time. I like to work hard and just be as focused on work as possible.

That sounds like a good reason if I've ever heard one. Especially because, when you take a step back and look at it, Jonas and Jenner are on two completely different paths at the moment. If their social media accounts are any indication, anyway. Here's the proof:

1. He Doesn't Have Much Downtime, And When He Does, He Spends It With His JoBro

Aw.

2. He's All About "Levels"

His Twitter is a shrine to it. As it should be. The song is good.

3. ...And His TV Show

So exciting!

4. ...And, His Other TV Show

Even more exciting.

5. He's Singing With Maroon 5

How does he find the time?! Is he in possession of a teleportation device?!

6. ...And Taylor Swift

Is he a concert good luck charm or something?

7. But Summer Definitely Does Offer Some Relaxation Time For Kendall

As it should. Girl is a hardworking model practically year 'round.

8. She's Also Family Oriented, And Spends A Good Amount Of Time With Her Own Fam

See?

9. Besides, There's One Man In Particular Taking Up Her Time

We all could use a Norman in our lives.

So, for now, it really does seem like the two are in different places. But, ya know, never say never...
