One direction boy dating older women
The boys, as they’re lovingly referred to by Directioners, have – in the manner of young, attractive, famous and wealthy men since time immemorial – had a lot of girlfriends. Pay attention, there will be a short quiz afterwards. Here, a field guide to the many girlfriends of One Direction.“When you’re an ambitious woman, it’s very difficult — you either have to subsume what you wanna do for somebody else, or live with the struggle to fight your partner on top of business survival, and it’s a very unhealthy relationship,” says Nicole Wipp, a 45-year-old attorney and entrepreneur, who found a perfect match in her husband, Marcus Sutherland, a 33-year-old paramedic.“Dating somebody younger than myself, there’s an acceptance of ambitious women — it’s more normalized.” They met at the University of Hawaii in November 2002, when she was a law student and he was a sophomore undergraduate.So, six years ago, she started dating studs in their 20s and 30s — and she hasn’t looked back.“Younger guys tend to be more active, have less baggage,” says Soletti, an event planner who regularly hosts dating mixers.
Earlier this year the 18-year-old called it off with 32-year-old British TV host, Caroline Flack. Last year he was rumored to have had an affair with 32-year-old, married, DJ Lucy Horobin.
“You’re less likely to date a younger guy who’s been divorced, has children or has sexual performance issues.” In 2011, she met Juan Cabrera, now 34, at one of her mixers and soon fell in love. “Millennial men are career-focused and want to travel with successful women and conquer the world together,” says Soletti, who notes she’s seen an uptick in established women signing up specifically to meet younger bucks at her speed-dating events.
Such May-December couplings are no longer seen as relationship outliers — or indicative of deep-seated mommy issues.
“Everybody thought this was a little phase, that I was just having a crisis.” But friends and family came around to accepting the couple after they’d been dating for a year and it became clear that Sutherland had serious intentions.
In April 2010, they had an intimate beachside wedding in Hawaii, and they now have a 6-year-old son, Marek.
But Malik’s most visible relationship was with Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, to whom he was engaged from August 2013 to August 2015.
