While it's no big secret that Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson are romantically involved, this photo of the girls sharing an intimate kiss outside the Mercer Hotel in NYC earlier this week is the first pic that openly confirms that the duo are more than just BFFs. From holding hands and nuzzling cheeks to not-so-veiled love proclamations on their blogs, the inseparable duo have all but gone public as a couple. Whether or not they ever talk about it — and really why do they need to? — it's sweet to see Lindsay so happy with someone stable who she seems to really care about and be able to depend on. Aww.
