With no distinct "type" aside from white dudes (she dates 35-year-olds, high school students, international film stars, and unemployed college kids), it's difficult to read the madness. Harry's taste generally run to British entertainment hosts (TV or radio) in their 30s.
But as with any work of abstract art crafted by a wild and violent master, there are a couple lenses through which one can interpret Taylor Swift's romantic past. Is she a witch whose sleep two teenage sweethearts disturbed one night while driving up to Lovers Lane?
Of course, because it’s Taylor Swift we’re talking about, everyone is already predicting the end. From Zelda Fitzgerald to Angelina Jolie, men have always lusted after crazy women. Consider Jolie: Years ago, she explained some of her scars to a reporter. “If a woman dates three or four people in an eight-year period, she is a serial dater and it gives some 12-year-old the idea to call her a ‘slut’ on the internet? It just isn’t, and that’s a fact,” she told Taylor’s 11,000 square-foot, million secret beachfront getaway is possibly the coolest thing about Rhode Island, and it’s where she throws down every July 4 for a star-studded bash.
“You’re young, you’re crazy, you’re in bed and you’ve got knives,” she said.
After her break up with the 1D star, Swift took a pretty lengthy break from dating.
Of course, we’re talking about dating Taylor Swift. Swift graduated high school a full year before her classmates and didn’t feel the need to fall into the crowd. Among many, many other philanthropic efforts, she donated 0,000 to the V Foundation and ,000 to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia—and pledged million to build an education center in Nashville.
Her roster of ex-boyfriends is the pinnacle of entertainment-world cool—Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, Zac Efron, Jake Gyllenhaal—and yet none of them managed to hold onto her. “Why Taylor Swift S*cks at Relationships.” “9 Reasons You Wouldn’t Want to Date Taylor Swift.” She herself has even posed the question: “Why would anyone want to date me? (Men find self-deprecation a huge turn-on.) But we can answer her as semi-seriously as we can. She clearly lives her life on her own terms, and you will either bend to her will or land yourself on a train to Dumpville. But she’s clearly got a self-deprecating sense of humor, as well, and not every girl can say that.
And now, she’s reportedly dating British actor Joe Alwyn (). Or will this guy finally be the one to tame the wild and restless unicorn known as Tay-Tay? In fact, here are 15 reasons why every guy on planet earth finds her to be the smart, sexy, savvy, kind, ruthless, funny, perfectly prickly, and utterly hot girl of his dreams. At the end of the day, being a strong and utterly driven go-getter is sexy. Don’t forget: Back when everyone was gushing over “Hotline Bling,” Taylor ribbed her fellow pop star: “You used to call me on my elf phone.” At the end of the day, nothing is more attractive than a sense of humor. As such, we’d like to nominate Swift’s “Blank Space” video into the Crazy Girl Hall of Fame, and we love her all the more for it.
