Selena Gomez & Niall Horan: NO Direction ... Stuck in Friend Zone

Exclusive Details

Selena Gomez can't catch a break, or a date -- despite doing dinner with Niall Horan from One Direction ... she's still very, very single.

Our Selena sources say she and Niall have been friends for years ... never anything more. They saw each other at the AMAs after-party Sunday at The Nice Guy and decided to grab some grub at Nobu Monday night. 

Just friends ... kinda the same story we got after Justin Bieber serenaded Selena over the weekend. Would somebody just close the deal with this chick already?
