Zac Efron and Rumer Willis: Dating or just friends?

rumer-zac-gi.jpgZac Efron and Rumer Willis are friends, there's no doubt about it. The two have been spotted hanging out for months and months now, which clearly means they must be dating.

So, are they?

Unfortunately, as a celebrity, any time you hang out with someone of the opposite sex (or same, depending on your preference), you're automatically romantically linked to them. The truth is, we can't know for sure unless they want to tell us what's going on -- and clearly right now, they don't. (And they shouldn't be obligated to.)

However, we've compiled a list of some of the could-be couple's hangouts, beginning with a trip to Turks & Caicos islands in 2010. Efron reportedly joined Rumer for the Willis family vacation last New Year's Eve. There weren't too many public sightings of the pair until July, when they were both present as pal Ryan Rottman was arrested for DUI.

Later that month, In Touch reported that Efron and Willis were getting serious, with Zac even meeting Rumer's mom, Demi Moore. Recently, Efron and Willis were spotted clubbing at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood with friend Rottman, and in early December Perez Hilton reports that the two were spotted hanging out publicly once more.

That's quite a bit of evidence. Still, you know who else hangs out a lot? People who are just friends. Efron's been linked with "High School Musical" costar Ashley Tisdale since splitting from Vanessa Hudgens, so it's really anyone's guess.
