Niall Horan and Demi Lovato seem to have been on the cusp of something happening for a long time now. In fact if this was soap opera they would have met, been married, then she would have died only to mysteriously come back to life on the day Nialler was due to wed his new love.

Niall Horan and Demi Lovato go on date

But this isn’t a soap opera unfortunately, and apparently the pair has only just gone on their first date.

According to UsMagazine.com the One Direction hotto and Demi went out for some dinner at a restaurant called Pink Taco in LA after the VMAs on Thursday night, and were alone. Well alone is in they were just a pair, not that they had separate tables and dined solo. Oooohhhh and eerrrrr.

Now we’ve been thinking about this; is food really the best thing for Niall to be exposed to on a date with a pretty girl? The Hozmeister needs to be on his charming, flirting A game and we’re not sure he can concentrate on his moves when there’s food around. We just hope he didn’t kick off and demand for some lemon and herb peri-peri for his tacos.
