As a fan, one of the things we look out for are milestones in our favourite celebrities’ lives. One of those milestones is, undeniably, when they find a significant other. Some look forward to it, others are terrified of it. Either way, it’s big news.
Taiwanese artist Ouyang Nana (欧阳娜娜) caused quite a stir yesterday (7th December). In her Instagram photo dump, the artist included a few intimate-looking photos. Needless to say, fans lost their minds trying to figure out if Nana had started dating or not!
Nana must have been feeling inspirational yesterday. The 21-year-old made a post saying: “Always find time for things that make you happy to be alive.” She included several photos of things that made her happy, like her favourite books, her awesome phone case and a beautiful sunset.
However, there were some photos which made fans crazy instead of happy. In one photo, Nana was holding someone’s hand tightly. As it was only a photo of their hands, no one was sure who the other person was. However, the two must be pretty close based on how tightly they had their hands clasped.
In another photo, Nana is leaning against, what looks to be, a blonde haired boy as they pose for a selfie. She looks very comfortable with the person and is borderline affectionate. Netizens were quick to point out that they looked very close. “Is it love?” one asked while another suggested: “It could be an official (dating) announcement, right?”
To the disappointment of some (and relief for a few), a fan stepped forward to explain the photos. Apparently, Nana wasn’t just holding anybody’s hand. That hand belonged to her friend from the United States, nicknamed “Small (小巧)”. Also, if one looks closely at the photo, the shoes in the hand-holding photo match those in Small’s photo, which follows directly after.
As for Nana’s affectionate friend, it was clarified that they weren’t a guy at all. The individual was one of Nana’s close female friends. It just so happens that she dresses neutrally enough that she resembles a guy.
Well, if Nana does start dating, she’ll surely have her fans support. But for now, it’s nice to know that she’s cherishing the simple things in life, boyfriend or no boyfriend!
