Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson still aren't looking to live together full time, but that doesn't mean that they aren't close. Like, really close.
Khloe shared a colorful selfie of the two of them, featuring some serious PDA.
But the way that she captioned the photo is getting almost as much attention as the steamy photo itself. ...
The photo of Khloe and Tristan doesn't just show off major PDA -- Khloe also wrote an interesting caption.
Khloe wrote the Armenian phrase "Im ser," which almost looks like a typo but it's an anglicized Armenian phrase (she also wrote it in the original alphabet, which isn't something that you see every day).
The Kardashians are, of course, of Armenian descent.
Im ser means "all my love."
(It can also just mean "my love")
But she also wrote "all my love" in English out beside it, to make sure that all of her followers would know what she was saying.
That's sweet, and also probably intended to correct anyone who's wondered at the tensions between them.
And we'll talk about that more in a moment, because you need to see their selfie:
They! Looks! So! Cuddly!
Like we said, PDA.
Khloe giving the kiss is, like, sweet.
Then Tristan's goofy expression shows how relaxed and comfortable they are together.
(So long as he doesn't start doing it all of the time, right Miley?)
They also just both look hot, which is a plus.
The world can never have too many hot couples, right?
We don't know if the flare there in the photo is natural, or if they're using some sort of J.J. Abrams filter.
Also, kind of an aside, but if you squint, Tristan Thompson's tattoo just looks like chest hair.
He actually has some chest hair, as you can see, so that might be intentional.
You know, we'd like to see this relationship work out.
For one thing, Tristan Thompson might be the only person in Khloe's life honest and blunt enough to straight-up tell her that Rob Kardashian is a loser.
Not because Rob is overweight or because of whatever mental issues kept him in isolation for years before he started up with Blac Chyna.
But because of his behavior.
Rob Kardashian blasted Pilot Jones with threatening text messages that were both racist and homophobic back when rumors were circulating that Pilot might have been Blac Chyna's baby-daddy.
Then there was Rob's infamous revenge porn attack against Blac Chyna.
Which, just for the record, is not the way to handle a breakup.
It's also super illegal and just a generally awful thing to do.
All of that garbage behavior is what makes Rob a bad guy who doesn't need to be enabled.
Rob could work out and get some work done and come out nearly as hot as one of his siblings (well, maybe not at Kendall's level).
But despite the new packaging, he'd still be the same product: a loser.
If Tristan is speaking sensibly to Khloe on this issue and they're still together, he might be the only one who can give her good, honest advice instead of either being an echo chamber for her or being someone she'll ignore.
Like, Caitlyn Jenner says that Rob is an ass but we don't think that Khloe really listens to her so much these days.
Khloe can be problematic at times.
At her worst, she can come across as a controlling busybody.
But ... she's a person and maybe when she forms her own, new family ties, she'll mellow out.
Just look at what reuniting with Liam Hemsworth did for Miley's bad behavior, right?
Imagine if these two get engaged, and in a couple of years we start talking about "the new Khloe" and "the old Khloe" in terms of her behavior and how likable she proves to be.
That ... probably won't happen.
But let us dream.
