Fireworks are in the air! They may have only started dating a few months ago, but it's clear that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are enjoying their time as boyfriend and girlfriend — and may, in fact, be on the road to marriage. While there's no sparkler on her finger *just* yet, the "I Kissed a Girl" songstress and her actor boyfriend are definitely showing these tell-tale signs that they're headed to the altar.
1. They look good together at award shows (above).
When she's not wearing her blue wig and pasties, she's wearing a rose-pink satin column gown by Prada and flirting with her new beau. At this year's Golden Globes, "Katy stopped to say hi to Jonah, Gaby and Carrie," an observer shared with US Weekly, "and Orlando joined her by her side. At one point, while she was chatting with everyone, she put her arm around Orlando and adoringly put her hand on the back of his head. They left together shortly after." The two didn't leave each other's side — flirting throughout the night, and soon after, reports surfaced that they were an item.

2. They snuggle in public.
A PDA-loving teenage dream! It's obvious that the singer and actor duo weren't afraid of a little makeout sesh during an outdoor lunch on May 17 (head over to E! News to see the steamy photo). The two were nuzzling and kissing, all smiles — and Perry looked pretty happy to be there. Earlier this week, they were also seen kissing on a yacht in Cannes, France, an insider reported. "They are doing great. They've been holding hands, kissing, and laughing when with each other in public. They enjoyed some time on a yacht as well as hitting up some parties." Clearly the two are head-over-heels.
3. They shut down rumors like pros.
He kissed a girl, and she didn't like it — but it wasn't a deal breaker. When the news came out that Bloom and Selena Gomez were getting hot and heavy in Las Vegas, it seems that the 31-year-old singer was pretty unfazed. A source shared with HollywoodLife, "Orlando is not one to stir drama and he has and continues to have an incredibly soothing effect on Katy. He pretty much explained that nothing sexually happened between him and Selena,"a source shared (much to Justin Bieber's relief). The source also revealed that Perry believes it, and as their yacht-cuddling session shows, she's not kicking him to the curb for this any time soon.

4. Their exes approve of each other.
When your ex is is a guitar-playing singer who makes girls go crazy, it can be pretty intimidating. And when your ex is a Victoria's Secret model, it can be even more intimidating. Luckily for Katy Perry, Bloom's ex-wife and mother to his son, Miranda Kerr, is "happy" for her ex-husband, E! News reports. She describes Perry as "a really cool woman and talented singer," saying that Kerr has "not had an opportunity to spend time with Katy," but that "[Perry] seems to be really good with Flynn and that is important to her. She has no anger towards Orlando for dating Katy; Orlando and Kerr communicate well about their son's well-being." As for Russell Brand, he's been pretty mum on the subject of Perry's new main squeeze, and given John Mayer's extensive dating history, we can't imagine that he'd mind!

5. They go on lavish vacations together.
"Orlando and Katy are pretty tight and seem to be getting serious as more time is spent with each other," a source told E! News. "They travel really well together." Most recently, the lovebirds were seen locking lips on a yacht in Cannes, and before their French escapades, they were enjoying a tropical vacay in Hawaii — complete with a hiking date, according to E! News.

6. She loves his son.
When there are children in the picture, a relationship can go from 0-60 much more quickly, usually because a partner who doesn't want kids, won't commit to the relationship. Luckily for the British actor, that's not the case. A source tells E! News that "Katy thinks Flynn is precious. Her favorite quality about Orlando is how much he loves Flynn and what a great dad he is." Cue the 'awwwws!'
7. They both have marriage experience — so they won't mess it up this time.
Been there, done that. Both Perry and Bloom have been married before — Perry to Russell Brand and Bloom to Miranda Kerr — which will make them less likely to seal the deal unless they are super serious about it again.

8. They agree on politics.
While Bloom isn't with Selena Gomez, he is "With Her." The couple was spotted together at a Hillary Clinton rally in NYC. Bloom was there supporting Perry, who was performing during the event. She signed autographs and posed for pictures, rocking a vibrant shirt that read, "Hillary Clinton is a badass." An insider shared, "Katy and Orlando had a quick trip to New York City. Orlando came to support Katy and he is also a big Hillary Clinton fan," Us Weekly reports.
Since all signs seem to point to yes, we're hoping that the two will keep us in the loop on their plans to walk down the aisle, and he won't be the one that gets away. Fingers crossed it happens soon!
