Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik seem to be such a perfect couple. They are both beautiful and in love, and it seems that all is right with their world. Still, Malik and Hadid do seem to have a different attitude and overall outlook on life.
Yes, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are different people, and that is OK. It is perfectly fine for couples to have different interests and different world views from each other. Many young couples miss that point entirely, and at least pretend to like all the same things and feel the same way about everything. The important thing, though, is to always be one’s self while being open to learning about the other person and their preferences.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik may not always see the same world, though. Even when standing side by side, Zayn Malik has a way of appearing to be more worried about the world around him than Gigi Hadid seems to be.
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are both wise, intelligent, practical, and creative young people. Zayn and Gigi share those characteristics as perhaps their greatest attributes.
Yet, Gigi Hadid is known primarily for her great wisdom and practical thinking, while Zayn Malik is compulsively creative, and his music reveals a darker more brooding side to his imagination.
Gigi Hadid has been wearing pink-lensed glasses since she was a kid, both literally and figuratively. Gigi’s view of the world seems beautiful as if looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. Gigi Hadid is a strong, confident woman and a great role model for young women and girls.

Zayn Malik’s book Zayn is a prime example of creative perfection from the well-designed layout to its well-worded content. Zayn Malik’s story reveals a shy, sensitive, intensely creative young man who struggles with anxieties and insecurities.
Gigi Hadid helps Zayn Malik with his anxiety. Gigi Hadid has set out on a number of strategies to ease Mr. Malik’s stress. Malik says it is helping.
Gigi Hadid is a practical woman, and that comes through in a recent interview featured in In Style. Miss Hadid was just talking about fashion, but her answer was revealing of her character. When asked about her preferences, Gigi Hadid says she prefers sneakers to sandals, shorts to skirts, and a one-piece swimsuit to a bikini though it kind of depends on what the activities are.
“I feel sportier in a one-piece, you know what I mean? Like, when I’m playing volleyball I want to wear a one-piece. But if you want to tan, you gotta wear a bikini.”
Zayn Malik’s girlfriend Gigi Hadid doesn’t want to be sidelined by her clothing. Miss Hadid is active and she’s also proactive. Any girl who has ever wanted to be part of an unplanned volleyball game or other athletic activity, but wears a bikini, sandals or a skirt, knows exactly what Gigi Hadid is talking about. Her fashion line for Tommy Hilfiger also reflects her preference for comfortable and sensible clothing over fads.
Gigi Hadid likes to be prepared for anything. She’s also a take the bull by the horns kind of girl that is ready to take action now rather than wait. During fashion week in Milan, Gigi Hadid showed her spunk, successfully defending herself against an attacker on the streets, according to the Inquisitr. The man was no match for Miss Hadid’s quick reflexes.
Zayn Malik has a completely different sounding strategy as he speaks to Clash about making his first album. The level of forethought and perfectionism he put into that album paid off in spades, but the process sounds agonizing.
“I feel like them nerves kinda fueled me in a positive way. I was always going to over-analyse my record anyway – I’m that kinda person. I wanted to be the person that was going to be the most negative and get in that frame of mind and be like, ‘If I’m going to hate me, what am I going to hate about me?’ and try and get rid of all that negative shit, so even the person that wants to hate me the most still has to like my record. [Laughs]”
Is Gigi Hadid’s shy and anxious beau really hated? If so, it didn’t hurt his album sales. Mr. Malik was blamed for the One Direction hiatus, but recently, Harry Styles has confessed that he had suggested the break months before Zayn Malik left One Direction. Harry said everyone in One Direction was exhausted.
Zayn Malik just got exhausted in a more dire way because of his eating disorder. It wasn’t Malik’s fault. For more on the One Direction hiatus, see this from the Inquisitr.
Zayn Malik is more cerebral and creative in his approach to life. Malik tends to give decisions a lot of thought if he has that luxury. Zayn told Clash he is much more positive about his next album. The love Malik got from fans who liked Mind of Mine boosted his confidence.
“Yeah, I definitely think the reaction to the first record has fueled a bit of confidence in the second one and helps just understanding what people wanted to hear and what people were enjoying. So yeah, it’s definitely made that easier, I guess, and just knowing where I fit in the market and where I want to sit vocally.”
Gigi Hadid is obviously a bright spot in Zayn Malik’s life. Malik seems to brighten whenever she is mentioned. Zayn Malik told Clash he didn’t feel that his fame was cramping his style in his relationship with Gigi Hadid.
“Not really, no. I enjoy chilling with my girlfriend, but just as anybody else I also enjoy work and I love what I do. My girlfriend is a part of my life and so is music, so it’s just finding that balance, just as everyone does, between work, your love life, and family life.”
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are reportedly spending a lot more time in New York and Los Angeles lately than in Britain, and they are spending most of their time together at least as much as possible while balancing two hectic careers according to Hollywood Life.
Gigi Hadi and Zayn Malik are living together now, but their engagement is a highly expected likelihood. Their eventual marriage is almost a certainty according to this article from the Inquisitr about people who place odds and bet on such things. The odds are 5/4 that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik will be the next celebrity couple to get engaged.
Will Gigi Hadid’s can-do attitude eventually clash with Zayn Malik’s more cautious approach? Of course, it could, but that too will likely work out. That is what marriage is. No two people are the same, and so it becomes a balance, just as Zayn Malik said about balancing his music career and his girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid cope with their difference in outlooks and that makes them stronger as a couple. Zayn reportedly doesn’t like the term power couple because he feels it infers a sort of mutual using. Still, together Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are a powerful couple, not because of their fame, but because of their continuing unity despite any differences.
Differences are normal and natural for Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik as much as any other couple. Pretending to be the same isn’t the answer. Becoming the same, rather than get to know each other naturally over the years is a very poor idea as well. Instead, it is important to be honest about who one really is.
Zayn Malik has learned to be honest about his anxiety rather than trying to pretend he’s not worried about the things that really bother him, and that is a good thing.
In time, Zayn Malik will adopt some of Gigi Hadid’s ideas and perhaps even some of her inborn positive outlook. Gigi, too, will learn Zayn’s way of thinking. Still, any couple will always have core differences in their thought processes and decision-making strategies as well as personal preferences. It is precisely those differences that protect strong couples, by relying on the strong instincts of two people, not just one. It can evolve into a sort of double checking, checks and balances sort of effect.
