I'll be honest. I am an adult woman in my mid-twenties who is madly in love with One Direction. I have shelled out hard-earned cash to stand next to crying teenagers at their concerts. I own One Direction bobble heads. I may or may not have wandered around London hoping I'd bump into Harry Styles. Some may question my seemingly juvenile obsession, but Honey Badger don't care, my love for 1D — and particularly, my favorite One Direction member, Niall — is unwavering. Even the recent announcement of a One Direction hiatus can't drag my devotion down (did you see what I did there?).
Although all One Direction members have their merits, I do like some better than others. Especially with regards to Zayn — he is dead last in my book. I'm still mad about the whole leaving One Direction and dying his hair green thing. As a form of protest, I will most likely wait a whole week before purchasing any solo Zayn music (#ZaynBrokeMyHeart). Thankfully, my favorite 1D Member Niall Horan has never let me down. Whether its his playing guitar like a bad-ass maestro or looking adorable at public appearances, Niall is an eternal ray of sunshine in my world. And in honor of his birthday on September 13, I will name 22 reasons why Niall is mine, yours, and everyone's favorite One Direction Member.
