Niall Horan's rumored girlfriend Ali McGinley seems to be smitten with the only Irish member of One Direction, but will she just end up with a broken heart if she's hoping for a real relationship?
After she was photographed having fun with Niall in Mullingar, a lot of Directioners probably got extremely upset. After all, Niall and Harry Styles were the only two single members of the band left with Zayn Malik dating Perrie Edwards; Liam Payne being loved up with Danielle Peazer; and Louis Tomlinson moving in with Eleanor Calder during the guys' vacation. Niall hasn't ever seemed quite as girl-crazy as the rest of the guys, but Ali McGinley is a very pretty girl who he can obviously cut loose and have a good time with.
In fact, the 17-year-old stunner had so much fun with Niall Horan that she hasn't been able to help gushing about him. According to MSN, here's what she said about the blonde babe:
''He genuinely may be one of the nicest men I've ever met. We're close.''
When asked on Twitter if she's actually dating Niall, Ali would only say that she and the singer are "happy campers, nothing less nothing more." This could mean that she and Niall haven't talked about their relationship status - they might have gotten a little romantic with one another, but perhaps Niall Horan hasn't officially asked her to be his girlfriend. A source revealed that Niall thinks that Ali McGinley is gorgeous, but his schedule would make it difficult for him to start dating her. Unfortunately Niall might have a little trouble trying to use this excuse - Ali could just point to the other three members of One Direction who have girlfriends.
So basically Niall and Ali need to decide if they like each other enough to try to make a relationship work just like Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have done (it's hard to count Zayn Malik here since he hasn't been seeing Perrie Edwards very long). Niall still has a little time off to get to know Ali better before making this decision, so Directioners shouldn't start freaking out about losing another of the guys just yet.
