Harry Styles, One Direction Singer, 'Wants To Settle Down' After Chart Success

Harry Styles from One Direction is looking to give up his partying and settle down, at the ripe old age of 18.

A whirlwind couple of years of chart success and a string of stunning ladies seems to have taken its toll on Harry, as he now wants to settle down with the right girl.

The One Direction singer has recently bought his first home and is looking for a lovely lady who can share it with him, according to his old school friend Will Sweeney.

Harry Styles is reported to be tired of his pop star lifestyle

Speaking to The Mirror, Will explained that Harry is a sensitive soul who really wants a stable relationship, rather than endless nights on the town.

Will says, "He's always going out mixing with celebrities and going to all these parties with different girls, but it's lonely and for him and not what he wants.

"That's just not the kind of guy he is. He's very sentimental and emotional and he always goes the extra mile of any girlfriend he has."

Most recently, Harry was snapped on nights out with Pixie Geldof, which saw the model getting the full wrath of devoted 1D fans on social network sites.

And Harry's apparent liking for older ladies is a new development, as Will added that while at school, Harry would always choose to date girls with "normal ages", rather than women 15 years his senior.
