Some of you have been contemplating the possibility that Louis & Harry have broken up. I wouldn’t be too worried.
1. ‘They aren’t all over each other like they were in the early days.’
That would be due to the fact that they are no longer in the 'honeymoon phase’ which happens to most couples. Take Barack & Michelle Obama, for instance; they have been married for a long time & have children together. They are not constantly over each other, does this make them less of a couple? This is most likely relatable to many parents who have been together for years. Again, it does not mean they have broken up. Also, it has been 4 years; they will have gained experience in restraining themselves on stage, in interviews, etc.
2. 'Eleanor is so close to Louis’ family, if she was a beard she wouldn’t be.’
This isn’t necessarily true. She may be covering up Louis’ actual relationship, but the family might actually view this as helping him keep Larry out of the public eye until they feel ready to tell the world. This may explain her involvement in Jay & Dan’s wedding, they view her as a close family friend. There is also the possibility, however slight, that all/some of the family don’t know about Louis & Harry. Coming out is a difficult step for anyone; if he is not ready to share this with his entire family, he wouldn’t dare share it with his fans. This would also be the time to mention that Harry appears to be just as, if not more close, to the family, so this point may not be the best one to abandon your belief in Larry over.
3. 'Louis wouldn’t let himself be miserable for so long.’
Simply put, if it were for the other boys, I’m sure he would do everything in his power to protect them. Also, if their management team is as vicious as we give them credit for, he may not have a choice. He’s not invincible.
4. 'They would have come out by now.’
This point, while ludicrous, seems to be a popular one. As it is 4am, I’m just going to bullet point reasons as to why this is not a valid reason to abandon ship:
a) They may not be ready. As stated above, coming out is such a difficult thing in today’s society.
b) Whilst equal rights are beginning to come into play, there is still such a long way to go & religion is still a huge part of modern life. They couldn’t risk losing those ticket & album sales.
c) We all saw the uproar caused by the Zouis video; it was trending on Twitter for days & is still mentioned in articles to this day. Imagine the media attention that would be caused by the 'front man’ and a committed boyfriend coming out as in a relationship. The band’s reputation would be ruined & they’d be portrayed in a negative light.
d) They are the biggest boyband in the world, and therefore, management’s biggest cash cow. If anything were to jeopardise this, it would have an effect on the boys, CEOs, secretaries, etc. in that company. There is no way they’d risk not being able to bring in a paycheck to everyone they employ.
5. 'Haylor & Hendall.’
I thought this was dead & buried, but apparently not. Haylor, without a doubt in my mind, was a publicity stunt. From the paps waiting at the side doors, the New Years Eve fiasco, to Union J flat out insinuating Taylor was a beard in an interview. I believe this speaks for itself. Hendall was possibly a larger stunt; Keeping Up With The Kardashians had failing ratings & Kris is well known for her publicity deals. Linking Kendall to Harry undoubtedly helped her modelling career in London, given his connections to Cara & co. She’s now promoting a new clothing line with Kylie, I believe. It is also worth mentioning that, during these two stunts, Louis was absolutely miserable (Haylor, in particular) which says a lot, interpret tha as you will. The bottom line is that if Louis didn’t care, he wouldn’t have looked so dead inside throughout the duration of these 'relationships.’ If you didn’t doubt Larry then, there’s no reason to doubt it now.
Okay, since it is Stupid O'Clock in the morning, I’m going to leave it here. I’ve probably forgotten something or some of this doesn’t make sense, but a girl’s gotta sleep. So go enjoy some tea & Larry videos while you await new matching tattoos.
it’s pretty fun how some directioners are saying “look at how haylor stare at each other, don’t tell me that they aren’t in love!!” LOL. seriously, have you ever seen how larry stares at each other? i don’t think so. because larry always look at each other better than haylor do and you’re saying that “they’re just bestfriends!!!” uh, what’s wrong with you?
and, i can’t stand how some directioners were saying “haylor is fake.” and now they are saying “anw they’re in love, they’re so cute together, most perfect couple ever” aha. just because of a “”kiss”“. again i ask you, what’s wrong?
Guys we need to calm down and just support Harry and Louis. They need us now more than ever, we all knew this haylor bullshit was going to happen and all we can do is show our love for the boyfriends. It will be okay!!!
