Who Did Noah Centineo Just ‘Fall In Lust’ With On Instagram? An HC Investigation

If you’re reading this, you most likely have a crush on the one and only Noah Centineo. Trust me, same. Everything from the smirk, the swoon-worthy one-liners, and the iconic hand in pocket spin has all of us falling in love with our internet boyfriend.The best part...he is totally single.  

But, it looks like Centineo has his eyes on a certain someone. Centineo caused quite the stir on Friday, after he tweeted about hoe he hates falling in lust with people on Instagram.  

“I genuinely detest when I fall in lust with someone on Instagram,” he tweeted. But who is this mystery person? 

Of course, Twitter users couldn’t help but feel the same way about Centineo. 

Some even claimed to be the unidentified indivudal.  

Others just really wanted to know who he was talking about. To spare you the trouble of combing through Noah’s Instagram history while your friends question your obsession with the YA heartthrob, I did it for you! I deep-dived into his Insta-likes and Twitter posts from the last few days to narrow down some potential suspects in no particular order. Here is what I found:

1. Selena Gomez

It’s no secret that Noah Centineo has nothing but “love” for Selena Gomez. In a September interview with Seventeen, Centineo opened up about his celebrity crush.

“Selena seems like one of the coolest people ever," he said. "And she’s an activist, as well. And clearly she loves love and is a loving person. I don’t know if it’s clear because I don’t know her, but it feels that way.”

When manager Nick Styne recently posted a throwback of him and Selena, Centineo couldn’t help but further profess his feelings for her.

“Bahhhhh she’s gorgeous,” he commented, along with a baffled emoji.

He also told Entertainment Tonight that his dream date with the “Back to You” singer would involve lots of yoga and some good conversation.

“[We could do] some yoga, go on a hike to the Wisdom Tree. You know, maybe go overseas, do somethings,” Centineo said.

As much as Centineo proclaims his love for Gomez, the actor revealed he has yet to slip into the singer’s DMs. “That’s all love, man. That’s not in the DMs, you know? I respect the woman,” he said. *Swoons.* He also added that he also thought Gomez is “absolutely” gorgeous. “It’s hard not to crush on her.”

Selena Gomez could possibly be the mystery individual, and a fan was even quick to point this out. The actress and singer has recently broken her social media silence, after a four month hiatus. 

For all we know, this could just be Centineo's way of finally making a move. #Gomentineo 

2. Lily Collins

It’s important to note that at the time Centineo posted that tweet, he only liked one post—Leonardo Dicaprio’s. The actor posted a side by side image of the Rondonia region of Brazil for the 10 year challenge, and Centineo liked it. But, it also seems like Centineo has a trend of not liking a ton of posts on Instagram and really only liking artsy photos, memes, and tagged images. 

Centineo, however, broke that trend and liked a photo from Lily Collins a couple hours prior to the tweet.

A few hours later, Lily Collins also liked a photo of Centineo and his friend. 

The two have previously hung out in Los Angeles, where they were photographed together at an EMMY’s party. Fans also spotted the pair enjoying a day out together before grabbing a quick pic with them. 

Coincidence or low-key the start of something new? 

3. Someone We Probably Don't Know 

Centineo’s stayed kind of quiet in regards to his own relationship status. According to JustJared Jr., he was previously in a relationship with model Angeline Appel, but it ended sometime after 2016. Since then, he’s been a free-agent and he's recently been unafraid to talk about his crushes on social media. Like this:

And also this:

The mystery individual could just be someone he happened to stumble upon on Instagram. It can happen. One minute, you're scrolling through Insta's explore page and then next, you "fall in lust." 

I still have so many questions such as why all the secreacy, Noah and who is the special someone you're pining after? For now, we will have to wait for confirmation of who this mystery person is from him.
