Just one day after 1D confirmed plans to take a break next year, a hashtag started on Twitter today ª#5monthswithoutzayn" as fans around the globe shared their thoughts on life post-Zayn. And, as you'd expect, there were plenty of funny / sad / interesting reactions.
Here's a few of our favourite:
1. The ones who don't hold a grudge and still love Zayn.
2. The cheerleaders for the rest of the fandom

3. The ones who are still upset
4. The ones who just want to see Zayn happy
i miss seeing zayn with the boys but at least he's is happy now and that's all that really matters tbh— s loves z (@invisibleziam) August 25, 2015
#5monthswithoutzayn yeah 5 months since he decided to stand up for himself and chose his happiness, may be the best decision he's ever made.— jasmine (@singniaz) August 25, 2015
5. The eternally optimistic ones
They said there's 99.9% that he might won't come back, but the 0.1% is the reason why I keep on going and hoping— Niall Horan (@explicitnouirry) August 25, 2015
