Taylor Swift is known not only for her singing and songwriting, but she’s also gotten a reputation for dating cute boys and then channelling her feelings from the relationships and breakups into songs that will further her career and make millions of fans relate to her lyrics. But love is a universal emotion, we all go through infatuation, crushes, love and heartbreak, so it’s not exactly groundbreaking that people find it relatable. The fun thing her fans do is try to figure out which song is written about which of her relationships and what real-life events are being referenced in the songs. It’s only natural that it also makes everyone curious about who she’s dating at any given time and how that relationship is going.
However, knowing this Taylor has become a bit secretive about her private life and not as open to discussing it or even showing off her relationships to the public. For a while now fans have been curious about her current bae and theorising if Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are in fact together.
Joe Alwyn and Taylor Swift have been seen attending various events but they’ve been careful not to arrive or leave together. They’ve been dating for about three years now but they managed to keep their relationship very private and mostly out of the public eye. Apparently, Taylor ever wore disguises when going on dates with Joe just to stay out of sight and not be followed by the press.
The tabloids still speculated and reported about the couple dating secretly for months. Then other hints were dropped. Ed Sheeran talked about how Joe was a very friendly dude and how he and Taylor are keeping things on the down-low. Both Joe and Taylor posted pictures in the same spot, but not together, and Taylor praised the movie he was in a day before it’s official premiere. So all in all, there were definitely some slip-ups or perhaps just hints for those who were looking for them and paying attention.
Taylor even included photocopied bits of her journal in the deluxe version of her album lover that stated: “I’m essentially based in London, hiding out trying to protect us from the nasty world that just wants to ruin things.” Another included note said: “We have been together and no one has found out for 3 months now. I want it to stay that way because I don’t want anything about this to change.”
But what do we know about Taylor Swift boyfriend Joe Alwyn? We know that he’s an English actor. You probably know him best from movies like The Favourite, Long Halftime Walk and Harriet. They probably met at the Met Gala in 2016. Taylor was still in a relationship with someone else at the time, but fans think that she referenced their meeting in a song.
Since then many of Taylors fans have suspected that the songs “Gorgeous”, “Dress”, “Reputation” and “Lover” are about Joe and their relationship. And Alwyn himself has been asked about this, whether it’s true or not and how he feels about being the subject of his girlfriend’s songs. His answer was very polite and British, he said he doesn’t mind at all and that it’s very flattering.
We got a glimpse of Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn together at the Golden Globes 2020 where they even showed a rare moment of public displays of affection. That made us think that these two really are in it for the long run. We hope this ting with Taylor Swift dating Joe Alwyn continues because they both seem to be really happy together.
