Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were referred to as Jelena during their heyday, and many fans of the adorable couple want to see them back together again.

Yes, Justin Bieber was a bad boy. And yes, Selena Gomez was recently spotted kissing and slow dancing with One Direction's Niall Horan. Still signs of a reconciliation between these two are beyond obvious.

It was back in 2011 when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez began making news as a couple. Things got rocky in 2013, and by 2014 they were done. In 2015, however, things between the two started heating up again, and although nothing has reached the "hot" point, they are much warmer than they've been in a very long time.

Entertainment Tonight reports that 2015 has been a very good--and productive--year for Justin and Selena.

The first indication of a reconciliation came in May at the Met Gala. The "Good For You" singer stunned in Vera Wang, and although the two didn't have a red carpet run-in, Justin was clearly a fan of Selena's look. As he was leaving the event, Justin shouted to the paparazzi, "Hey, Selena looked gorgeous at the Met Ball!"

A few weeks after the Met Gala, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were in a Snapchat video Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. of Hillsong Church posted. Justin and Selena have long practiced their strong Christian faith.

In June, Justin debuted his single, "Where R U Now." Fans noticed right way that in the music video for the catchy tune, an image that read, "Where R [U] Now, Selena?" appeared.

In September, Selena Gomez's name appeared in his "What Do You Mean?" video, in the form of graffiti.

In October, Selena appeared on the cover of Elle magazine, and within its pages she professed her eternal support for Justin Bieber.

"I'll forever support him and love him in a way that ... We grew up together," she said.

When asked if they'd ever get back together, she didn't rule it out.

"I don't know!" she said.

In last month's issue of Complex magazine, Justin talked about the intense relationship he and Selena Gomez shared.

"We were so in love. Nothing else mattered. We were all about each other," he said. "I moved in with my girlfriend when I was 18. Started my own life with her. It was a marriage kind of thing. Living with a girl, it was just too much at that age... When stuff would happen, I would lose my freakin' mind, and she would lose her mind, and we would fight so hard because we were so invested in each other."

Who can forget the time--just a few short weeks ago--when Justin serenaded Selena in the lounge of a Beverly Hills hotel?

So what's your take? Do these recent examples of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez coming together or supporting one another indicate a reconciliation is in the cards?

Or is this all simply pure conjecture?

What do you suppose the odds of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber getting back together might be?
