Last weekend, Justin Bieber posted a picture to Instagram and deleted it almost immediately after. The picture, you might ask, was one of the Biebs and Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez looking quite chummy. The couple officially broke off their on-again, off-again relationship about four months ago. However, rumors of their reunion began to fly when Selena flew to Norway last week to see the "Boyfriend" star perform. 

Is this reunion between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber even noteworthy? Based on a variety of reports, Gomez was never truly over Bieber from the beginning of their breakup. Hearing about these two is like hearing about that one couple from high school who could never make up their minds about each other. It could be real, it could be for attention, but one point prevails - it just gets old.

While many of the "Come and Get It" singer's friends and fans wonder why she would ever go back to Justin, a majority of people have lost interest in the couple, or never had any to begin with. When the news of the couple's Instagram picture hit the internet, reactions appeared to be indifferent. There simply is not much to say about the two getting back together. It's no surprise to anyone that she would return to his side; itt's only a matter of time before they decide to end things again, "for good." 

Bottom line: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's relationship wasn't significant or "magical" before, so it wouldn't be again. But hey, third time's a charm right? It isn't that people are annoyed with the couple's swinging relationship status. They're two young adults (acting like teenagers) who want to have fun, but it's time to find a new couple to report on. 

People want to see heart-melting couples get back together. If Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams decided to rekindle their relationship, that would be an entirely different story.
