We’re all pretty much on the same page that most of the songs on 1989 are about Harry Styles, right? Taylor Swift has admitted that her relationship with him – which ended back in January 2013 – was the last relationship she actually had, and ever since then she’s actually sworn off dating and plans to spend the rest of her life alone. Given that it’s nearly 2 years after the fact and she’s still feeling this way, there’s only one conclusion: he really fucked her up good and proper.
From Cosmopolitan UK:
Singing about the ‘daydream James Dean look’ in his eyes and how they will ‘never go out of style’, it couldn’t be more obviously (or sweetly) about One Direction’s Harry Styles. Not that she’ll be going back there… “I’ve learnt that just because someone is cute and wants to date you, that’s not a reason to sacrifice your independence and allow everyone to say whatever they want about you. I’m not doing that anymore.”
In fact she’s done with dating full stop for now, declaring: “It’d take someone really special for me to undergo the circumstances I have to go through to experience a date. I don’t know how I would ever have another person in my world trying to have a relationship with me, or a family. The best answer I can come up with now is ‘go at it alone. Life can be romantic without having a romance. I’m very attracted to how happy I am now.”
Well, obviously Taylor is still really young and it’s way too soon to say something so definite. However, I do think it’s incredibly difficult to have a successful relationship when you’re in the industry like she is. How could she? She’s constantly touring, being interviewed, having to meet fans, traveling around the world… it’s not really conducive to a loving and fulfilling relationship. Eventually, she’ll probably have to choose.
