Watching the gifs one can see that h/l go from v interactive/giddy to sedate and somewhat melancholic (especially dear Louis). Watching them I feel that Harry was the one who decided to finally move on. I remember leaving my first love ( for valid reasons) and it hurt like hell. Because I'm old I remember Gwen stefani dating her bandmate and then they had a breakup and they still stayed together as a band. Same with Fleetwood Mac and probably many other bands. Love is not always a fairytale :/
To think of how circumstances changed for them over those five years, how they’ve changed in response, how much we’ve seen and how much we haven’t…
25 Nov 2015 — as Harry said at a different moment in the interview above, “I think it’s better to, if [a relationship’s] not right, it’s probably best to say goodbye…if you’re not in it, if you’re not a hundred percent in it, I think for both parties it’s probably best to say goodbye.” And Louis agreed. Whatever’s between them at present, it’s nice to know they’re on the same page with that idea.
