One Direction have set a dating age limit - and will apparently no longer date anyone over the age of 24. *hides passport/driving licence/birth certificate*

Apparently, the boys think that they should stick with girls their own age for now, and save dating older women for later in life.

One Direction set dating age limit... nooooooo

Louis, 20,  is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "We're young lads, and you can date older women when you're older.

"But when you're older, you can't really get away with dating 18 or 19 year olds."

He added: "We have been asked before, I think it was around the time of Harry's little fling. In particular, how old's to old? For me, probably 23 or 24."

NOOO, One Direction set dating age limit

DAMN. Although we would like to note that Louis did say 'for me' - Harry, Zayn, Liam and Niall may feel completely different! *crosses fingers*

Well, go on then, all you fresh-faced under 24-year-olds, what are you waiting for? Get out there.

In the meantime, we'll be waiting in the wings, watching the boys get older, biding our time. That's not creepy at all, is it?

Harry Styles has another new lady friend in the form of Sarah-Louise Colivet?
