When it was rumored that Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black were dating, the Internet went to into a feeding frenzy. Which one of them will confirm? Are there any pictures of them together? Now that they're publicly together, they are enjoying some online flirting in the form of #ThrowbackThursdays pics and selfies.
It all started when Tom Daley posted a selfie on Instagram following Britain's National Television Awards. "Home from the #NTAs :) in bed now ready for training tomorrow!!!" the caption screamed. Oh Tom, so excitable.
The Instagram pic was a seemlingly standard Daley selfie that fans have become used to. But Dustin Lance Black (as well as a few observant followers) noticed that the selfie also featured an Easter egg: a selife of the new couple.
Of course, Black replied with a #ThrowbackThursday tweet of his own:

The link went to a Facebook post of a selfie of Black and Daley taken last summer. (Oh, so they have been dating for quite some time!)
While not the same image, it is strikingly similar to the one on Daley's iPhone case. We're not sure whether to find it all terribly cute or utterly exhuasting.
There you have it, online flirting by Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black.
