After observing each of them individually and together for 1,5 years now (plus all the footage for 2 more years), I will say this very confident: Harry is dominant in the intimate relationship they have and Louis is a passive one.
The first thing is their personalities, individually: Harry is this “one man player” much more than Louis. Louis is a team leader, but he’s all about the “team play”, the needs of the others are in front of his own needs. Harry has a need to take care of people and he’s persistent about it: cooking, driving around, favours (business and personal) … Louis is more like democracy, agreements and voting, Harry’s more like, “eat your breakfast Lou”. You know what I mean?
Then you have a body language, Louis can have this joker, leader personality for us/public, his friends, but if you pay attention, sometimes you can see how he acts when he’s vulnerable. He’s extremely clingy, he tries to hide in Harry’s “shelter” and Harry’s shelter only, he needs Harry’s attention (physical and mental!), he looks extremely small and fragile in those moments… It’s heartbreaking to watch to be honest. He’s quiet, fidgety and his facial expression is wary/unsure… And Harry always take care of him, always. He’s persistent and dominant, very protective of Louis in that state. He takes care of him. We saw this dynamic I think twice? And it was the most real/raw moment of their relationship in front of the public eye. And this is them in private in my opinion. Harry is a care giver, Louis is a care taker. Mostly of course, it could also be the other way around, Louis will do everything to take care of Harry, but here’s the thing. This type of dynamic works for them perfectly, they want nothing more, nothing less. It’s natural for them.
And if I can touch the topic of their bedroom, I give you my word Harry is a dominant one. ;)
