One Direction get lonely on the road
One Direction prefer being on the tour bus to staying in hotel rooms because they get lonely
One Direction find touring lonely.
The group spend months away from their families and friends because of their busy touring schedule and particularly hate being alone in their hotel rooms.
Louis Tomlinson told Britain's OK! magazine: "The tour bus is a little escape, that little back lounge we sit in. Hotel rooms can often be lonely. It's just an easier way to deal with it all.
"I can't really do 'on my own' time, I have to have someone's attention."
Liam Payne added: "Being away from home is a huge downside of touring. You miss your family and friends."
And the 'Little Things' hitmakers - which also include Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles - find it particularly difficult because mobs of fans mean their movements are often restricted.
Niall said: "It can be quite frustrating being stuck in a hotel. I remember in Peru - I got up, went into Louis' room and said, 'Right, what we doing today?' and he goes, 'We should go shopping.'
"Then we looked out of the window. There were 10,000 people on the street outside our hotel."
