READ: More on Liam Payne and Sophia Smith\'s breakup
1. Selena Gomez: After a lengthy on-again-off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, the
singer seems to have finally put The Biebs in her past. "I\'ve dated people. I\'ve been on a few dates, which is really exciting...," the pop star said in the October issue of
magazine. "I like to meet people in organic settings. Hanging out with a group of people and meeting through mutual people."
2. Emma Watson: The 25-year-old actress split from Matt Janney in December 2014, and she has yet to be romantically linked to a new man. She called their breakup "horrendous" in a recent interview with
, but perhaps, nearly a year later, she\'s had time to move on? Added bonus: they\'re both English.
3. Kendall Jenner: She was romantically linked to Harry Styles back in 2013, but the supermodel insisted the two were simply "friends." At the same time, the

6. Olivia Culpo: The 23-year-old Miss USA\'s ex, Nick Jonas, certainly seems to be moving on, so why not couple up with another sexy high-profile singer?!
7. Ashley Benson: A source recently shot down the Nat Wolff dating rumors, and the 25-year-old
star has previously said that romance is tough to find in Hollywood. "Relationships are so hard in this business...The strangest thing that I\'ve read is that I\'ve dated all the male co-stars I\'ve had on
. None of it is true. It\'s disgusting," the actress said in May.
8. Bethany Mota: The YouTube beauty\'s star is on the rise, and she\'s a big fan of One Direction. In fact, she said Payne was her favorite member when she first fell in love with the band!
9. Perrie Edwards: Must we even explain this one? Sorry, Zayn Malik!
