Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have reportedly been together since 2016. And unlike her previous relationships, Swift has kept her romance with Alwyn pretty secretive.
Swift, who’s known for writing songs about her ex-lovers, has dated Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhall, and Tom Hiddleston (to name a few). But those relationships don’t light a candle to what she’s got with Alwyn.
Swift and Alwyn seem to be serious. And we say that because of how secretive they are about their relationship!
No offense to Taylor, but has she ever been this hush-hush about a guy before?
“Keeping it private from the beginning really helped their relationship. They were able to get to know each other in peace. Their personalities are very compatible, and they’re respectful of each other’s careers,” the source shared.
Although we don’t know everything about their long-term relationship, we know enough. For example, fans are pretty sure the couple met at the 2016 Met Gala.
In her song, “Dress” Swift sings, “Flashback when you met me. Your buzz cut and my hair bleached.”
If you recall, Swift had that hair color during the Met Gala. And Alwyn had that haircut. Coincidence? We think not.
Interestingly enough, it was around this time that Swift and Calvin Harris broke up.
But it wasn’t until 2017 rumors of a romance between Swift and Alwyn started. The Sun reported, “Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship.”
Later that year, fans spotted Swift and Alwyn getting cozy in New York. A few months later, they reportedly moved in with each other after over a year of dating. BUT, the pair still didn’t speak about their relationship status.
Naturally, engagement rumors started spirling. According to a source at Us Weekly, “Taylor’s friends are all talking about a proposal and how she really wants to marry Joe. He’s her dream guy.”
The source continued, “Taylor really believes Joe is the one for her. She wants to get engaged to him. She just doesn’t feel as though she has to impress anyone at this point.”
In August 2019, Taylor released the song “Lover” which fans believe is about her love for Joe. Honestly, it probably is seeing as Swift has a habit of subtly singing about her boyfriends. Keep in mind, at this time, the couple still hadn’t been too vocal about their relationship.
But that changed in 2020 when Taylor’s new documentary came out. In the documentary, Swift references Joe a few times, saying she was drawn into his “wonderful, normal, balanced kind of life.”
And although Taylor is known for her extensive dating history, we have a feeling this boyfriend is going to last.
