It may be totally devastating to know that Liam, 19, has a girlfriend. But the way he feels about her will really melt your heart and make you like him even more.

17: What drew you to your girlfriend, Danielle?

Liam Payne: She's got really curly hair and beautiful eyes. I told Harry on The X Factor that I thought she was really hot, so Harry said into his mic, ''Liam thinks the girl with the curly hair is really hot!'' She and I had no choice but to talk - and it was really awkward! The next day when I saw her, I held the door open for her and she said, ''Thank you, I really like your jacket.'' That night, I gave her my jacket and got her BBM. And that was it.

17: Why be in a relationship when you have a million girls throwing themselves at you 24-7?

LP: I think it's just her. I found the person I really, really like. She understands everything. She's really cool. We hang out, we watch movies, she cooks me dinner. I bring her flowers. When you find that special person who puts up with you, then you've got to stick with her.

17: She's gotten some backlash on Twitter for keeping you off the market. How does that affect both of you?

LP: When someone says something bad about me, I don't let it bother me, but Danielle is quite insecure. When it gets to her, it gets to me. People who write mean things don't realize that she's a real person who has the same insecurities as they do.

17: You were bullied when you were younger. How did you get through it?

LP: I was bullied by a few people who were much older than me. So I went to camp to learn how to box. I was 12, and my coach was 24. It gave me confidence to know that if I could fight him, I could stand up to anyone.
