However trivial it might be, I thought this would be a fun
thing to do, as in my view there tends to be a pattern with who Taylor Swift
dates. Think of it as a puzzle/guessing game.
I know some you will comment saying “I don’t care, she’s not
even country, I wish she’d stop dating everyone and writing about everyone she
dates and just go be pop.” These comments crop up every time I write about
Taylor Swift and go ahead if you’d also like to post them here because well,
free speech and all (I know comments are moderated but we publish all that
aren’t abusive or spam). But I thought it’d be good to enter into the spirit of
fun, and hopefully some of this will amuse you if nothing else.
I have asked on Twitter and also some of my friends, so I
cannot take credit for coming up with all of these predictions. Mass credit to
everyone I have had this conversation with. Here we go.
Michael J. Fox’s Son.
Prince Harry. I’m
alarmed by this suggestion but it was a suggestion all the same, and judging by
Taylor’s closeness to the Kennedy’s, she likes a bit of a famous, powerful
family… Prince Harry appears to have that down pretty well. However he
doesn’t really associate with the music world as far as I know and is often out
fighting as part of the British Army, so maybe not.
Taylor’s historically been friends with Justin, and now Selena Gomez appears to
be out the picture and Justin is of legal age, maybe Taylor will make her move.
Ed Sheeran. The
two were romantically linked in 2012 before Taylor became involved with Harry
Styles, so considering Ed is about to embark on the Red Tour with Taylor this
year, and has been quoted as saying he’s going to write his album while out on
the road, I’d say this is pretty likely. They’ll write songs together, record
songs together, spend time together, and Taylor has a history with musicians,
let’s face it. She dated Joe Jonas in 2008, Harry Styles in 2012 and John Mayer
in 2009, and even sang on John’s song ‘Half Of My Heart’. This seems like a given to me.
Anyone from The
Wanted. Seems a natural progression from One Direction.
Any other member of
One Direction. I quite amused by the idea that Taylor might just ‘do the
best friend’ as it were, so this is on the list.
Josh Hutcherson. The
Hunger Games are a massive movie enterprise which Taylor provided the
soundtrack for and, seeing as Liam Hemsworth is engaged to Miley Cyrus, I
thought Josh would be a good candidate. It’s been a while since Taylor dated an
actor, he’s cute-looking and 20 years old. He has also cited Jake Gyllenhaal as
an inspiration, and Taylor is friends with Jennifer Lawrence, his co-star in
THG. Fate, no? All joking aside, I genuinely think he could be a serious
candidate for her.
Hunter Hayes. I
know Taylor doesn’t really participate in the country scene anymore, but Hunter
isn’t overwhelmingly country, and seems like the kind of guy who would be
totally infatuated with her. Right age, right appearance, the dreaded musician.
Tick tick tick.
Suggested by my boyfriend. Cracked up.
Bradley Cooper. Okay,
so this was more a researched prediction. Apparently Taylor has asked Jennifer
Lawrence to introduce her to Bradley Cooper, who has ‘politely declined’, as he
is 38, 15 years Taylor’s senior. This would make some sense as Taylor might
feel after the failure of her past two relationships with guys in their teens,
she’d do well to date someone much older. I think perhaps 38 is stretching it a
bit though? In two years time Bradley will be 40. Taylor will be 25. Either way
it makes sense for Taylor logic.
Zac Efron. They
were rumored to be dating some time back, but that was later decided untrue. I
don’t know, I guess I just saw this working for some reason.
He’s the cute Brit who plays brooding musician Gunnar in ‘Nashville’. Dating
him would perhaps save her teetering-on-the-brink relationship with country
music, he’s both a musician in real life and an actor, he’s up-and-coming, he
looks similar to some of her ex-boyfriends, he’s British, etc… This is probably
unlikely as they don’t move in the same circles but hey, you never know.
This was suggested to me by a friend, Hugh has a new project in Les Miserables
to promote. Other than that, same logic as Bradley Cooper really, except Hugh
is 44 and 21 years Taylor’s senior, but love is love, right? He’s also married
but again, love is love right?
Adam Levine. This
was also suggested by a friend, and he seems to fit the age (33), looks (rugged
and slightly brooding artist) and occupation (musician) thing to a tee. He’s
also getting press through multiple seasons of The Voice so won’t necessarily
need Taylor’s publicity, but she might be keen to attach herself to another
enterprise. He’s dating a Victoria’s Secret model but I’m sure that won’t be a
Going Lesbian. Tina
Fey did say Taylor needed some ‘me time’ to learn about herself. Maybe she’s
done with guys, and her ‘me time’ spent ‘learning about herself’ will involve
people minus that so troublesome member that has been the bane of women’s lives
since the world began. Plus, there are plenty of hot single women around in
Hollywood, and it would definitely shake things up a bit. Just a thought.
