I want people to know i’m happy, he’s happy and we’re in a loving relationship. It’s sad that people are so against it.’

    • Don’t get your hopes up. In no way do I want to overwrite the possibility of this ever happening, nor do I want to give you false hope. The chance of this happening is very small, so unless you make a lingering impression, you’ll just be another fan. I’m sorry but sometimes the truth is needed.

  14. what is louis’s favorite animal?

  15. Ino this is so mean<3 😦 😦
    This guy in my class said listening to ONE DIRECTION is disgusting. And all the girls in the class hated him for that. But still, love ya soo much gys!!! 😀 x 😀 x

    • It’s not mean, everyone has opinions. I respect him for speaking up and not being part of the crowd just because it’s popular to like One Direction.
