You may have seen the trending hashtag #HaylorIsOver after yesterday’s shocking news that Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles had called it quits after one year of dating. It’s never fun to see things end, but even though they both seem like nice people, there were quite a few warning signs that this relationship wasn’t meant to be. Here are some reasons why Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles called it quits, as well as some tips on how to handle your own breakup situation.
1) They were never really together
It’s no secret that Olivia Wilde and her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles were never really together. They were more like friends with benefits but they both still liked each other and wanted to keep in contact. Fast forward to September of this year, when they went on a few dates and Olivia thought it was going somewhere. But then Harry stopped answering his phone and Olivia found out he was dating Kendall Jenner. Apparently Kendall is a better match for him. Whatever that means…
2) The age difference was too much
The age difference was too much. This might have been the most important reason for their breakup. Olivia is three years older than Harry, and though that doesn’t seem like a lot of difference, it is when you’re in your twenties. Their personalities didn’t mesh well together either. The two are very different people and there were clashes over what to do for fun on weekends or holidays–they really just didn’t share the same interests in life at all!
3) They’re both very busy
Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are one of Hollywood’s most high-profile couples, but they sadly called it quit after a year of dating.
Their busy schedules made it difficult to spend time together. They are both on different coasts.
Olivia has been focused on her new movie while Harry has been touring with his band.
Olivia is the serious one while Harry is more carefree and boyish. It was a little too soon for them to get engaged or have kids. They have different priorities in life which makes their relationship hard to maintain due to their busy schedules and lifestyle choices.
4) They’re at different stages in their careers
Olivia Wilde is a 32-year-old actress who has been in the spotlight for 16 years. She’s constantly working on new projects, which may be hard for a guy like Harry who isn’t as busy. Olivia also loves to travel, so she might not want to settle down with someone who is away all the time. Olivia and Harry seemed pretty into each other at Coachella, but they broke up soon after.
5) They’re both very private people
It’s no secret that Hollywood’s most private couple, Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde, broke up. But this is the first time we’ve been able to get any idea of what went wrong between them. The two were notoriously private about their relationship, which made it difficult for people to speculate about what led to their breakup. According to new reports from Us Weekly, there may be a number of reasons why they decided to call it quits on their four-year relationship:
They are both very busy people in the industry and work was getting in the way of their time together.
Olivia has started dating someone else who she got serious with pretty quickly after she and Harry broke up.
6) They have different lifestyles
The lifestyles of the two stars couldn’t have been any more different. Olivia Wilde has a very public life that includes constant blogging, social media and attending high profile events. Meanwhile, Harry Styles has stayed under the radar for most of his career and is someone who prefers to keep to himself when it comes to his personal life.
Another factor that contributed to their breakup may have been how they were never able to see eye-to-eye when it came to starting a family. Olivia revealed in an interview that she wanted children while Harry didn’t seem interested in having kids at all.
7) They have different friends
One of the reasons that has been speculated for their breakup is the fact that they have different friends. Olivia and Harry are both very active on social media, which means that they’re constantly in touch with people from all walks of life. They’re not shy about posting photos, videos and stories with their friends, so if they don’t share any mutual friends, then it’s likely that they grew apart over time. The problem with this is not just the lack of shared interests and experiences; it’s also the fact that those shared friends could be influencing them against one another in a less than positive way.
8) They’re just not compatible
They’re just not compatible. They are the two most beautiful people on the planet, but they just don’t seem like a match. They might be friends, but that’s about it. Olivia is too cool for Harry and he’s just not her type. When you think of Harry Styles, you think of handsome man who is sweet and down-to-earth. When you think of Olivia Wilde, you think of hot Hollywood star who has a lot of fun with her celebrity status and loves to party with celebrities.
Olivia wanted to focus more on work than family: Olivia wanted to focus more on work than family when she first met Harry. She felt that she was in a really good place in life where she was finally doing what she loved professionally and didn’t want to give up the opportunity because she found someone special at home.
