Katy Perry and John Mayer really are dating, you guys! The couple were spotted out with Mayer's father, Richard, in N.Y.C. Wednesday night (Dec. 12), as they  headed to dinner and the newest show on Broadway, 'A Christmas Story.' Yes, there's a broadway version of one of our favorite holiday movies, but we digress.

The trio dined at Sardi's restaurant, and while we're sure they enjoyed a quality meal, the same could not be said of Perry's outfit. It looks like the singer was taking the "ugly Christmas sweater" thing a bit too seriously.

They eventually made their way to the red carpet festivities for the Broadway musical, where both Perry and Mayer posed with the show's composers, the cast of the musical, and Santa Claus! Well, at least Perry chose to give good ol' St. Nick a photo op.

Now is it us, or are these two on the fast track to "serious relationship" territory as of late? The on-again, off-again couple were most recently "off," because according to sources, Mayer just couldn't commit.

"He kept luring Katy back with promises that was going to change, but then he didn’t," said a source originally to Star magazine via HollywoodLife.com. "Katy was pretty crazy about him, so she kept giving him another chance. John liked Katy, so he wanted to keep her in his life, but it just wasn’t up to Katy’s standards.”

Despite these rumors, they appeared awfully jolly on their night out with Papa Mayer... but could that just be the Christmas spirit warming their hearts? Either way, we think they're a cute couple and are crossing our fingers, especially for Katy.

Heck, they even found time to jam with a Johnny Cash cover band at a wedding all the way in Montana recently! Mayer owns property in the state, so it's not totally out of his way, and bringing Perry along to his new home sure points in a positive direction, right?

So maybe this relationship is truly back "on again," and hopefully for good this time!
