+Jo Ho But dont you ever know that there is some people in this world that actually like One Direction!? Its as simple as just to ignore them because how would you like it if you were doing something you like to do and someone just commented "eww" you wouldnt like it right? Alright then! Im just trying to make things go smoother so nobody would get hurt but i guess not.

If you are a true directioner, you like all of them 
 
I do. And when people ask who my favorite person is, I stare at them and say,"Are you kidding me? I love them all equally."
 
There alright. But I like music that wants to make u dance. Fast an upbeat tempo
 
You could dance to quite a few of their songs 
 
they are so weird and their hair stinks
