Is there teen love in the air for pop star Austin Mahone and Fifth Harmony's Camila Cabelo?

"Austin caught Camila's eye when they were both in New York for the MTV VMAs [in August]," a friend of the teens tells PEOPLE. "They met the day before at the Arthur Ashe Kids Day and have been in touch ever since."

Back in December the "What About Love" crooner Tweeted his support for the 16-year-old brunette beauty whose group finished third on season two of The X Factor, "Hey gorgeous! Good job tonight. I voted for you."

Just a few months later it appears the two might be an item.

Although they haven't spent time together recently – Mahone has been in Miami rehearsing for his headlining tour, which kicks off on Oct. 17, and Cabelo has been in L.A. finishing off Fifth Harmony's EP Better Together that's set for release on Oct. 22 – a source tells PEOPLE that they're in touch regularly.

"Austin thinks she is so cute and she feels the same," the source says. "They're staying in touch and are looking forward to hanging out together soon."

Mahone, 17, cryptically Tweeted the following message on Sunday night: "When I text you, it's because I miss you. When I don't text you, it's because I'm waiting for you to miss me!"

Their reunion probably can't come soon enough!
