Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the Canadian ice dancing pair people love, took gold in Pyeongchang on Tuesday. This might also be their last Olympics together, which has led people to speculate: are they gonna date now or what?
The two certainly seem to have feelings for each other. There’s the on-ice kissing, the way they look at each other, the steamy Moulin Rouge program that is somehow sexier than anything in Moulin Rouge.
And there is, of course, this moment.

If you are captivated by the sexual tension between them, it probably just means they’re doing their jobs correctly. Emotion is part of their strategy, and it pays off.
Of course, there’s always the possibility that these two ice lovers are actually attracted to each other. Honestly, there’s a good chance they are. (They did date in elementary school, after all.) They just care more about the two decades of work they’ve put in on the ice than risking it all on a relationship.
So, perhaps the two will finally get together after they retire. Perhaps they won’t. Perhaps all this analysis is a little weird.
But look at these gazes and see if you don’t get attached!
