Honestly you guys calling Elounor "life partners" but have you seen the Briana and Louis timeline (all the clubbing and drunken paps shots are to die for!!) and the time the fans caught them making out! They were the real life partners, Briana thought they had a connection and everything!!!
Some people last in our lives for a little bit. Louis was supposed to meet Briana so that Freddie could exist. I don’t the relationship he has with her now, they seem amicable, but I believe that his relationship with Briana when they first met was not intended to be long lasting. They met while he was still dating Eleanor (i don’t think he cheated on her) and hooked up with her a month after Louis got out of a nearly four year relationship with Eleanor. I didn’t like that because it doesn’t seem healthy to me. You need to give yourself time after a break up, but b/c of the busy schedule of 1D and then Zayn left, I think Louis was “go go go!” to try and make himself feel better with what was happening? I can’t speak for Louis, I don’t know what he feels or felt. With Briana, it’s sad but sometimes we love people a lot more then they love us back. And it wouldn’t be fair for anyone to dwell on someone who doesn’t feel the same way back, ya know? Everyone deserves someone who should love them wholly, and if Louis can only do that for Eleanor and not Briana, Danielle, or anyone else, it’s best to try and find someone else to love you the way you should. I think that Louis treated these women right but it was hard for him to be fully invested in them because of what he had, and now has again, with Eleanor.
And with all due respect to Briana, but LOUIS was the one who called Eleanor his life partner first, not us. He always saw Eleanor that way. I know you must like Briana and wanted her and Louis to work out for the long haul but it just doesn’t work out that way sometimes. Here’s a bit of poetry regarding all this by Edna St. Vincent Mallay called “Figs from Thistles: First Fig” it’s about how things may be temporary but they still can be beautiful too :)
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!
