I have a feeling that Demi & Joe still have feelings for each other, even though Joe is dating ashley. I dont know, its just a feeling :)
I wouldn’t be surprised if one day they got back together. They’ve been best friends for so long & they’ve kept their feelings for each other for so many years. How can it all just possibly end after 2 months :)

@Aimee Curran, do you ever do any research for your articles? Miley and Nick met a year and a half prior to the tour they did together in Fall 2007, and Miley has said several times that “it was love at first sight,” and that Nick told her when they first met that he wanted her to be his girlfriend. Soon after they met, Nick’s family moved into the same neighborhood as Miley and they spent time together almost every day after that. The tour was actually when they broke up, not when they got together. Miley has revealed this often since that time, for example, on an episode of The View and in her autobiography, “Miles to Go.”
