Harry Styles likes picking up ladies with Liam Payne because he has good chat up lines.

The curly-haired heartthrob and his One Direction bandmates have no shortage of female fans. But when it comes to sweet talking women, 20-year-old Liam has the edge.

"I once went out with Liam and he has some funny chat-up lines," Harry grinned to British magazine Very.

"He went up to a girl and said, 'Do you have a plaster because I hurt my knee when I feel for you?!'"

In the past, 20-year-old Harry has been linked to gorgeous stars including Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner. Sometimes it's frustrating for the singer to see his love life debated in the media.

"I'd say more than 90 per cent of the people I get linked with are my friends," he sighed. "At the moment, it appears that I have 7,000 girlfriends! It's ridiculous."

Harry added that when he is interested in someone, it can be tiring having to explain that all the rumours they've heard about his conquests aren't true. He also believes in love at first sight, but doesn't think it's happened to him yet.

It seems that any girl would be lucky to bag Harry, who claims he'd make a model boyfriend.

"I'm very loyal, very faithful and my mum tells me I'm a romantic," he said.

"When I have a girlfriend, I like having someone I can spoil."

Harry, Liam and their bandmates Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson are currently on their Where We Are Tour. The boys are lucky to have each other when on the road.

"We travel all the time, so if someone's having problems with a girl, they'll tell everyone what's going on," Harry explained.

"We all give our advice and talk about it. Relationships aren't easy."
