Lil Nas X is in love! And he's not afraid to let everyone know it! 

In a recent interview with Variety, the 22-year-old, Grammy-winning rapper-songwriter and Out cover star opened up about his personal life and gave a rare glimpse into his romantic life, talking about how after having a string of some bad, emotionally unavailable beaus, he has finally found someone special who he thinks is "the one."

"I’ve had some good boyfriends and some bad ones," the "Industry Baby" rapper told the trade publication. "A lot of them were emotionally unavailable or had a lot of insecurity and whatnot. But I’ve found someone special now."

He continued:

"I think this is the one. I can’t explain it — it’s just a feeling."

Though he didn't name his boyfriend, the internet sleuths of Stan Twitter have a theory that it could be none other than Colombian-born dancer Yai Ariza

After kissing X during the BET Awards in June and licking X's neck during his Saturday Night Live musical performance in May, there's been all sorts of buzz online that the two are a little bit more than just friends, and after X posted a sneaky pic on his Instagram Story where he was getting cozy and cuddly with an unidentified man that the stans surmised was Ariza himself, it's easy to see why many think the two are an item!  

We love love, and we're so glad to see someone as deserving as Lil Nas X getting to be his most authentic self with someone he absolutely adores! Congrats, X!
