Good job with this but I think there are some things you can do to improve with practice.

Be careful of harsh sounds like the 'r' and 'a' sounds in your singing. If you overemphasize the 'r's then the few letters afterword also get thrown off, and it sounds rough. To improve your 'r's I would suggest thinking of it as a soft 'r', like the way british/English people say the R sound. It will come off much cleaner.

In terms of your a sound, it sounds somewhat - sorry for the word I'm using - whiny. I would suggest thinking of 'a' as more of an 'ah' sound almost. The way you sing it, it gets pushed higher in your throat and almost becomes nasal. But if you let it be more of an 'ah' from your throat, it will come off much more powerful.

Also, the chorus could use some work. Although it should be energetic, energetic doesn't just mean louder. It sounds like the notes are a bit of a stretch for you and that you are almost yelling them to get them out. Try to lower the song a tone or two so it's more within your reach, or just soften your voice and listen to the difference. It should be powerful and excited but not so much yelling.

You have an attractive voice, just need technical work in the higher range/chorus area. But I would think your voice could get your girl if you stick to the lower range, it sounds good there.

You plan to win a girls heart by singing her a one direction song? Is she 13 years old? Anyways, it sounds decent-pretty good at some parts during the verse but when you get to the chorus I can hear you straining to hit the high notes and they sound flat to me. I would suggest singing through the chorus in a very light voice making sure not to strain and hit the notes on pitch (listen to your recording and if you can't tell you're flat then use a pitch app on your computer or iphone to check). Once you can do that flawlessly then I would try to slowly increase the volume. Good luck with the girl but really? One Direction... lol
