So here they are. 5 boys... 5 men... 5 perfect specimens of a living species.
To help you make your mind up, you take Buzzfeed's "Which Member of One Direction Should You Marry?" test.
You're like "OMG I GOT LOUIS!!" He may not have been your gut instinct's first choice but you feel blessed and overwhelmed that someone thinks you're worthy of marrying any member of this heavenly band.
You realise that you're basically this Koala bear and you feel excited about rubbing noses with Louis for the rest of your life.
But then you start to get intense feelings of jealousy towards this Koala bear...
And you now can't imagine your life without Liam Payne.
Yes... he's the one... just look at him. And just like Beyonce you can't help but scream "Surfboard" whenever you see this picture.
But then you see this picture and you're just like "OMG I could be that butterfly fluttering next to Harry's heart... I REALLY COULD"
Or that bobble in his hair...
You really feel there's a place for you at this table, amongst his showbiz pals... They'd embrace you, laugh at your jokes and coo over how cute you and Harry look together.
But you'd always be worrying about the stability, and decide you need a bit of commitment in your life... ENTER ZAYN!
This could totally be you pulling funny faces as Zayn's fiance (OMG just saying it makes you giddy).
You dream of being tattoo'd on his bicep.
Or adopting this adorable little kitten with him.
But realistically you have too much respect for Perrie because Little Mix are fierce and "Move" was your sassy song of 2013.
Which leaves you with Niall. 3 years ago you would NOT have been ok with this... But times have changed.
He'll always make you laugh...
You can swim in his eyes...
And he'll make a great dad.
So you think you've finally worked it out... And then you see a group shot and it's just like "Oh god... here we go again."
