Larry Stylinson: A Look Back on What Started the Fictional One Direction Bromance

Hey, it’s Larry Stylinson! Wait, you might be wondering who’s Larry Stylinson? There is a supposed fictional romance between One Direction’s Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. What started this famous romance between Styles and Tomlinson? Read on to learn more about this scoop.

Larry Stylinson is one of the most shipped couples in the entire world. According to Tumblr’s top 20 list of Most Reblogged Ships (ship being short for relationships), Larry Stylinson ranked third.


So what started this fictional romance between Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles?

According to Yahoo UK, Stylinson started when Liam Payne was asked about what they’re looking for in a friend. While Payne answered “Female, that’s a good trait,” Styles replied, “Not that important.”

And that’s how Larry Stylinson was born.

But Larry fans believe that this fictional couple started way back, even before One Direction came to be a group.

The outlet cited that Stylinson’s fans gathered evidence that date back in 2010, citing that both singers knew each other before the creation of their group on “X Factor.”

According to reports, Styles and Tomlinson first met in the loo and their first words were: “Hi” and “Oops.”

If you’re all familiar with Styles and Tomlinson’s tattoos, then you’ll know that Styles had the word “Hi” inked on his arm, and Tomlinson had “Oops” on his.

As if both tats weren’t enough, fans also seemed to have pieced together an important puzzle. Tomlinson had a compass, rope, and arrow tats. Styles, on the other hand, seemed to have the answer to Tomlinson’s inks: ship for the compass, an anchor for the rope, and a heart that will get pierced by the arrow.

Fans also couldn’t help but become suspicious when Tomlinson came running into Styles’ arms when Simon Cowell called them back on stage.


And when Tomlinson went public with his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder (who are currently rumored to have split. Read here), Tomlinson posted his love tweet for Styles: “Always in my heart @Harry_Styles. Yours sincerely, Louis.” The tweet has now received over a million retweets.

While some fans had their hearts broken when Styles went public with Taylor Swift, their hopes came up when they noticed that Tomlinson wasn’t a fan of Haylor.

During an interview, Tomlinson was asked if he was happy for Haylor now that they are dating. Tomlinson answered: “I’m happy that they are good friends.”
