Last week, Kailyn Lowry sparked dating rumors when she and her pal Dionisio Cephas had a flirty exchange on social media. “What are the chances I’ll actually see @ttcu1 today?” she wrote on Snapchat, accompanied by a pic of her rumored beau, to which he playfully responded, “Stop acting like I don’t live next door.”

However, in an exclusive statement to In Touch, the Teen Mom 2 personality, 25, reveals that she and Dionisio are strictly platonic. “He’s not my boyfriend,” Kail assures. “We’re just friends.” Still, Dionisio seems like quite the catch if the Pride Over Pity author ever catches feelings. Learn more about him below!

He is the living definition of #beardgoals.

If you like facial hair, you’ll definitely like Dionisio. He has a gorgeous, thick beard that would make any mountain man jealous. Also, his long dreadlocks are pretty awesome. In August, Dionisio showed off his impressive beard in a particularly sexy Instagram post, which he captioned with a man-in-a-turban emoji.

He is an aspiring T-shirt designer.

Dionisio is seemingly trying to make a name for himself in fashion. In June, he shared a photo of a T-shirt from a yet-to-be-released collection called “Haten Dead.” “If it was easy everybody would do it,” he wrote alongside an image of the garment.

He looks super-cute in glasses.

Hot nerd alert! Dionisio rocked a pair of spectacles back in March and, TBH, he looked good AF in them. He actually looked so adorable in them that, in the same photo, we somehow don’t mind the bandana he decided to wrap around his head à la Carrie Bradshaw circa Sex and the City 2.

He has some really hot friends.

Just days before Dionisio confirmed that he can really wear the hell out a par of glasses, he shared a pic of himself posing shirtless with several of his equally attractive buddies. So, if she isn’t interested in Mr. Cephas, might we suggest that Kailyn go for one of his fine-ass friends?
