Shawn Mendes’s rise to fame in the music industry is pretty extraordinary. Just a few years after posting a cover of Justin Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me,” which made him an Internet sensation then, he is now at the top of his game earning multiple awards as millions of dollars for his hit songs and a recent hugely successful international tour.

With millions of fans worldwide supporting him, success is practically guaranteed for every song he brings to the market. Speaking about his mostly female teenage fanbase, most of them are probably dying to know if the Canadian heartthrob is still available or already off the market.

Well, the good news is that he does not appear to be dating anyone at the moment. But the bad news is that it looks like he won’t be dating anyone soon.

While Shawn Mendes is definitely one busy music artist, he does blame his hectic schedule for remaining single. Rather, it seems that he is rather picky, as well as patient, the type of man who’s not afraid to wait for the right one to come along.

“I’m not currently dating anyone, but it’s not because I don’t have time — I don’t know if I’d be dating anyone if I was home in Pickering, either,” the singer-model explained. “It hasn’t stumbled across me, and I’m not chasing it.”

Despite Mendes’ assurance of still being single, some fans still had their suspicions that he may have been linked to a few celebrities in the past.

Hailey Baldwin

Before Mendes rose to fame, Hailey Baldwin expressed her desire to date Mendes in a 2013 tweet. Talks about the two possibly dating became more intense when they were spotted together during the 2018 Met Gala. Of course Baldwin ended up marrying another Canadian pop star, Justin Bieber, which put a stop to these speculations.

Camilla Cabello

And then there’s Camila Cabello. Of course, the two have been very close friends since 2014, when they used to make YouTube covers. While both artists insist they’re just the closest of friends, some fans suspect that their friendship may not be entirely platonic.

One clue is in the lyrics of Shawn’s song “Why,” which might be a description of their relationship. “When people ask about us, now, we just brush it off/I don't know why we act like it means nothing at all/I wish that I could tell you that you're all that I want,” the song’s lyrics read.

Another clue might be Cabello’s super sweet tweet. “So proud of this amazing human !!!!!!” she captioned a post containing a few photos of her and Shawn. “Seems like yesterday we were just kids singing Ed Sheeran songs in the dressing room, now we’re kids trying not to throw up cause we’re at the Grammys!!!! I love you forever ❤.”

Of course, the “I love you forever” part did not escape eagle-eyed fans. But whether or not they’re into a romantic kind of relationship still remains to be seen. What’s certain for now is that whoever will eventually steal Mendes’ heart will be one hell of a lucky girl.
