There are so many new celebrity couples that gave us life this year: Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner, Tyler Posey & Bella Thorne, Ariana Grande & Mac Miller… Seriously, so many! And, it seems that the noobs aren’t the only ones who are inspiring confidence in love — on-again, off-again duos, like the classic pairing of Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth, are doing the same.
To be clear, we’re not referring to on-again, off-again pairs like Chloe Grace Moretz & Brooklyn Beckham or Kristen Stewart & Alicia Cargile, ’cause they’re not together at the moment. And we’re not talking about potential reunions, like Cara Delevingne & St. Vincent, either. No no, we’re talking about all the couplings that are currently set in the ‘on’ position (at the time of writing this, anyway). Here are six O-A, O-A couples that got back together in 2016:
Liam Hemsworth & Miley Cyrus
Proof of a rekindled relationship — platonic or other — was clear in November 2015, when the 24-year-old "We Can't Stop" singer reportedly helped the 26-year-old Hunger Games star adopt a dog. But a romantic relationship wasn't confirmed until 2016.
In January, multiple reports cited that Miam was together at Byron Bay Falls Music Festival in Australia, along with his brothers, Chris and Luke Hemsworth, and their wives, Elsa Pataky and Samantha. Triple-date status! They supposedly spent about half an hour in the packed VIP area, and were seen cuddling and kissing. While there's no photographic evidence of the canoodling, snapshots of their reunion hit the Internet, sending everyone into a frenzy. Thus, the beginning of Miam 3.0.

Emma Roberts & Evan Peters
The American Horror Story/Adult World co-stars/love interests got back together in September 2015 after a 3-month separation, following the demise of their 3-year relationship — their 1/2 a year engagement included.
Then, in May 2016, their second round of romance went kaput, without any reason given. She moved on with another man, named Christopher Hines, the following month.
BUT, the saga of E-Squared didn't end there. By September, Chris was gone, and the odd pair reunited. And, around Thanksgiving, word got out that they were engaged... again!

Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid
The first few days of June were ROUGH. First, Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris called it quits, then Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik, followed by Demi Lovato & Wilmer Valderrama. It was awful!
Fortunately, one of the pairs, Zigi, realized only days later that breaking up was not the right way to go.

Jamie Campbell Bower & Matilda Lowther
While we'd love to tell you that JCB got back with his other on-again, off-again girlfriend slash Mortal Instruments co-star, Lily Collins, he actually turned the switch back 'on' with model Matilda, whom he dated from March 2014 to early 2015.
The two were spotted together late February, and have since only posted loving notes for each other on their social media pages.

Kylie Jenner & Tyga
Every time you think Kyga's called it quits, it turns out to be wrong. No matter how many cryptic tweets or emotional Snapchats the teen posts, the pair always seems to work their issues out shortly after. But, in May, things looked promising.
According to TMZ, the youngest member of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians klan and her rapper boo decided to break up days before the Met Gala, which is why they attended the event separately.
It didn't last long, though. Nearly 2 months after the on-again, off-again couple called it quits, he posted a picture of Ky on his Instagram, along with the caption, "They always come back..." And they did, indeed, get back together.

Scott Disick & Kourtney Kardashian
After 9 years together, the parents of three reportedly gave up on their longterm relationship for good in July 2015.
That is, until now. On December 1, E! News reported that they're officially back on. In fact, "they've been back on for a few months."
While they don't live together, at the moment, the site added that "they are back together and giving their relationship a try again."
