"No, I hadn’t [fallen in love before]. I’ve loved people from afar, but falling in love with someone and having feelings for someone but they don’t know... It’s different," she continued. "You’re so open about your personal life, but then you seem cautious about your romantic relationships."
But, here's the kicker!
"I mean, I love him [Shawn]. We have always connected; we have the best time together...
"People can say whatever they want to say. They can speculate, but at the same time, we are going to live our own lives, enjoy it, and fall for each other like nobody is watching. That is how I want to live. I never want to open the door for people to feel like they are involved. Like I said, I want it to be mine and [his]. That’s why I’m so tight-lipped about it: because I want to protect it."
The interview comes only a few days after Shawn expressed that he wouldn't comment on his relationship with Camila, to respect her.
While backstage post-concert in Connecticut, Mendes was asked by a fan if 'he's ever been in love before', to which he replied: “Honestly, I want to talk to you guys about this stuff because it’s not just me in the relationship, you know?

“There’s another person involved, and I can’t say things that I feel…. It’s not just me deciding, you know?”
