„There’s one common dream that most Directioners share, they just want the chance to meet and greet the One Direction boys. With millions of fans all over the globe, it can sometimes seem like you’ve got a better chance of winning the lottery than you do to shake hands with or to hug Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall, or Zayn.
So we’ve decided to write up a list of ways you could possibly meet the boys.
1. Win a Competition
If you’re lucky enough to find one, and then win it, this is your surefire way of meeting the lads. They’re not the most common competitions, but they do happen. One lucky Australian, Jacinta, was flown to the UK thanks to Hot30, where she got to meet them all and watch their concert.
Listen to radio shows like Nova, 2DayFM, SAFM, B105, Fox FM and 92.9 – they’re the ones most likely to be offering tickets. A competition like this will be fairly well advertised, so it’s best to check their websites regularly as well.
Magazines like Dolly and Girlfriend are also good places to check, once again both in the magazines and online. You can also check out the website Win Free Stuff to see if they have anything on their database.
2. Write to One Direction
Okay, okay, you’d have to be pretty lucky to score a meet and greet just by sending them a letter or email. The boys must get bucket loads of fan mail, and we’ll never know if they even get a chance to read it all. But desperate times call for desperate measures.
Send them a letter and let them know just how much you’d like to meet them. It won’t work for everyone, but stars definitely have visited fans before after receiving a letter that touched their heart. It could happen. The key is to be creative, but be truthful. Make your letter and your story stand out.
If that fails, write to Ellen. That lady has magic powers, maybe if you plead your case well enough you could end up meeting both One Direction and one of the best talk show hosts around.
3. Write for a Magazine or Newspaper
Given the fact that most Directioners are still in high school, this one could be a bit tricky. It’s not likely that you work at Dolly in your spare time. Even if you’re not a staff writer (props to you if you are), remember that plenty of mags use outside writers to cover specific topics.
Pick a magazine, newspaper, or TV show who are likely to interview 1D when they’re in the county and try and convince them why you should do the interview.
Here’s a tip, don’t send them a pitch that sounds anything like this:
„OMG I should ttly rite for u coz I luff 1D & I’m a Directioner for lyf”
Put a creative pitch together, and explain to them just why they should let a 14 year old interview one of the biggest bands in the world instead of their star reporter. Plenty of magazine stars have been hired thanks to their ability to show off their skills with flair, and convince someone that they have exactly what it takes.
If you can convince them it will make a great story, they just might run with it.
4. Start a Petition
There are plenty of times that One Direction have held signings, sure it may not be the chance for a long one on one chat, but it’s still a chance to meet them. Unfortunately Australia hasn’t been as lucky. So why not start a petition?
Whether it’s just creating a Facebook group, or using an actual petition website like The Petition Site. If your group starts to gain momentum, contact your local media, they seem to lap up petitions for celebrities. If you can get your petition supported by enough people it might be enough to convince One Direction to do a meet and greet in Australia.
One thing to keep in mind: If someone has already created a Facebook group, join theirs rather than making your own. Sure you might not get all the fame, but 1 group with 5000 members is a lot more impressive than 5 groups with 1000 members each.
5. Stalk in Style
If you’re lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, you could always ‘bump into’ the 1D boys. Why be a member of thousand deep screaming crowd, when you could be the girl who ‘accidentally’ crashes into Harry Styles?
If you’ve got the skills to find out where One Direction will be at anyone time, why not try and go for the accidental meet and greet?
The key is to not stand out as an overly enthusiastic Directioner. Screams and squeals while holding up an ‘I LOVE ZAYN’ sign won’t be particularly inconspicuous, and are more likely to get you shielded away by a minder. Act casually and you never know what could happen.
A word of warning: ‘accidentally’ cutting off a lock of anyone’s hair is a little bit creepy. You want a chance to meet them, not a chance to get locked up.
It can sometimes be a fine line between serious fan, and serious stalker, but there is no harm in having a dream or two. If you’ve got a combination of luck, talent, and creativity, there is every chance you could score the meet and greet you’ve always dreamed of. „
