From the happy "Shake It Off" to the melodic "Delicate", it's impossible not to love at least a few Taylor Swift songs. Many of us are huge fans of the singer-songwriter and have been for a long time now. Whether she's singing country jams or going full pop star, we're always down to listen to her new singles and albums and we know that everything that she does is going to be both good and also very popular. She just knows how to get to the heart of dating and relationship issues, every time.
It goes without saying that when Taylor's got a new song out, people start immediately wondering who she has written about. Her dating life and her songs are one and the same, and fans are really smart and usually can figure out exactly who she's talking about.
Taylor Swift has been dating Joe Alwyn for a while now and while we know that they're a very cute couple, we don't know that much about them. Okay, we don't know very much at all. It's time to learn some things about T-swift's current love story. Here are 20 interesting things to know about Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn's relationship.
20 Private Life: Here's What Fans Should Know
Some celebrities seem to relish life in the spotlight and enjoy letting fans know everything that there is to know about them. Others are more private. We might not think that Taylor Swift is all that private because she has dated very high profile people in the past, from Harry Styles to Jake Gyllenhaal, but she and Joe Alywn are a different story.
According to Elite Daily, these two are keeping things as private as they can. It seems like they have been a couple since October 2016, which makes it almost two years that they've been in love (while staying away from the public eye).
19 Moving In (Or Not): They Might Not Have Their Own Place Yet
After a year or two, many couples move in together and it's just one of those relationship milestones that is both super exciting and also seems practical. According to Elle Decor, Taylor Swift has eight places of residence (yes, eight): a 10-bedroom penthouse in NYC's Tribeca area, a house and condo in Nashville, a Rhode Island place, a townhouse near her NYC place, and a West Village apartment, to name a few.
Has Joe moved into one of those... or has the couple moved in together? According to Us Weekly, Joe still lives with his mom and dad in his childhood home. So it seems like based on that fact, maybe they haven't taken the step to live together just yet.
18 (Secret) Love Story: No One Knew They Were Dating For A While
We've all had the experience of dating a new guy and wondering when is the right time to make our relationship public. Sure, we're not famous so it's not like we had to worry about paparazzi or the media, but we do always want to make sure that things are real and legit before letting our friends and family know the good news.
It must be tough to be famous and figure out when to go public... or maybe you figure that eventually, people will find out, and you don't want to make an official statement or announcement. According to Your Tango, Taylor and Joe were dating for many months before people realized that they were a couple.
17 First Meeting: The Met Gala 2016
The Met Gala is one of the most fabulous events of the year, so much so that it's the focus of this summer's movie Ocean's 8, and it seems like it was the event where Joe and Taylor first met each other. We wish that we could have attended and seen it happen, right? Okay, let's be honest, we wish that we could attend in general because it looks so epic.
As Umusic.ca reported, people think that maybe Taylor met both Tom Hiddleston and Joe Alwyn at the same Met Gala. That's some juicy news because, as us big-time Taylor Swift fans know, Taylor dated Tom Hiddleston before dating Joe Alywn.
16 Falling Fast: Joe And Taylor May Have Started Dating In October 2016
When we hear about a new celebrity romance, we have one thought on our minds: we need to know the relationship timeline. It's like when our best friend texts us and lets us know that she just met a cute new guy. We need every single detail that she could possibly tell us... and we're not going to be very patient about it.
As Your Tango reported, it seems like Taylor and Joe started their romance in October 2016. She and Tom Hiddleston were together until September 2016. Again, it's almost two years at this point, and things seem to be going well since they are still together.
15 Can You Keep A Secret: Hanging Out In London
We know that Joe Alwyn is British, so does that mean that Taylor has been in London a lot?
Yes, that seems to be the case. According to Us Weekly, they have hung out together a lot in London, and Taylor would wear a wig. That makes sense since not only is Taylor a super famous pop star but we also know that these two have been doing their best to keep their relationship private. It seems like that is something that is very important to them and that's also why we don't know that much about this new romance.
14 True Love And Happiness: It's Going Really Well
As Elite Daily says, people say that Taylor feels more joy in this relationship than anything before. The general feeling is that things between Taylor and Joe are going really well.
Long-time fans are probably jumping for joy about this because it's just so nice to see someone happy and in love. It's like when our best friend or sister has had a lot of relationships and a lot of breakups and all we want is for them to finally meet their soulmate and person. From the photos that we have seen of these two, they do seem really happy.
13 Meeting The Family: Check
After a couple has been together for a little while and things are going well, they start talking about meeting each other's families. It's definitely one of those milestones that is considered a big deal and it can be nerve-racking for sure but for Joe and Taylor, it has gone really well.
According to Elite Daily, Taylor has met Joe's family: "They've done many Sunday roasts together — in fact, it happens without fail if she's here over a weekend— and they seem very comfortable around her. His brothers all seem to be fans of them together as they've hung out with Taylor and Joe on several occasions."
12 Meeting The Friends: June 2016
We put a ton of emphasis on our family liking the person that we're dating. We want everyone to be nice to each other and maybe even have some things in common so they can have some real conversations. Meeting the friends is also a big deal.
According to Umusic.ca, Joe met Taylor's friends (or her "squad") and they liked him. It's an interesting fact since it makes us realize that even if someone is famous and has tons and tons of fans, they still want their new boyfriend to make a good impression on their friend group. (See, we have something in common with Taylor Swift. How cool.)
11 Summer Loving: They Went To Turks And Caicos This July
Everyone loves a beach vacation and it seems like every summer, everyone that we know is traveling to really amazing, warm and beautiful places. It's hard not to be envious of others who can escape to a tropical destination (or even just a nearby cottage by the lake).
If we're jealous of friends and family members who go on beach vacays, we're definitely going to be a bit jealous of the kinds of traveling that celebrities do. After all, their trips are always nothing short of fabulous. Joe and Taylor went on vacation this past July and they went to Turks and Caicos. The photos are so adorable.
10 Date Night: A London Night Was Captured
Fans got to see the couple on a date night in London at the end of August 2018, and this is a photo from that evening. Reports say that they had steak for dinner. Since they are so private, this was a big deal.
We love Taylor's green dress (and probably wish that we had it ourselves). We may wish that we knew more about this couple or that we saw more date nights since we can't help but want as much information as possible about a celebrity that we're a fan of. But with these two, this might be one of the only date nights that we're going to see photos of and hear about.
9 Say It With Jewelry: Taylor Wears A Special Necklace
When Reputation came out, many fans loved the song "Call It What You Want" and it was also one of the tunes that the singer performed on SNL on November 11th, 2017. She has a necklace that has the letter "J" and she wrote about it in this song. The lyrics are, "I want to wear his initial on a chain round my neck/Chain round my neck/Not because he owns me/But 'cause he really knows me."
Those are not only sweet lyrics but also something that Taylor made relevant once again when people started saying that she and Joe had called it quits. According to Elle magazine, she was photographed wearing that necklace, and many think it was to show that, nope, they haven't broken up.
8 Looking To The Future: The Same Private Story
As Elle magazine says, it seems like these two will keep things private and they really like having their love story out of the spotlight. It seems to have worked so far, and since it's been almost two years and they are going strong, that's really cool.
While we might be a bit frustrated when a celebrity that we love wants to keep things private because we want to know as many things about them as possible, we have to admire that they are keeping their relationship just to themselves, right? It's a pretty big deal in this day and age and if that is what makes them happy, then all the power to them.
7 Social Media Clues: They Posted The Same Photo
When a celebrity or a celebrity couple is private, fans get excited about clues, especially if the clues are posted on social media.
As Elite Daily reported, Taylor and Joe posted the same Instagram photo (or at least a really similar one) and that seems to have proven that, yup, these two are dating. Taylor posted a photo of her standing next to a huge cactus the day before she started her tour, and Joe posted a photo of him standing next to the exact same caucus. This was considered a big deal since they have been keeping things on the down low. And, as a bonus, the photos are really sweet and cute.
6 Seal Of Approval: Ed Sheeran Loves Joe
We know that Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are good friends, and it's hard not to be a little bit envious and wish that we could all hang out. They could do a duet for us and we would be so happy. We always love seeing that Ed has recorded on Taylor's latest album and we're fans of them both.
According to Umusic.ca, Ed is a fan of Joe, and we think that is just such great news. It's always good when a new partner gets the seal of approval from friends and family. It's so important that other people think that this is a good match.
5 Good Reputation: The Whole Album Might Be About Joe
When Taylor's latest album Reputation came out in November 2017, it was extremely exciting. Many of us love the album and still listen to it on a regular if not daily basis. Of course, as soon as Taylor releases a new single or album, people start wondering who she's writing about.
Thanks to Umusic.ca, we know this interesting fact: Reputation might be about Joe Alwyn. That does make sense: many, if not all, of the songs are actually happy and paint a picture of a really great relationship. The two seem so happy together and it's not an album of breakup songs, it's an album about falling in love.
4 It's All In The Music: This Song Says Everything
It seems like every time that Taylor does anything or writes any song or says anything, fans wonder if it has something to do with her latest relationship. A cover song that she recorded got fans talking as well.
As People magazine reported, Taylor Swift recorded a cover song and there was a fun fact in there. Taylor recorded a cover of the song "September" by Earth, Wind, and Fire and she changed the date of the lyrics"Do you remember / The 21st night of September?” to the "28th." Fans think that must be a night she went out with Joe because why would she have changed the date otherwise?
3 Forever: People Think This Is It For Taylor
Many people want nothing more than to see Taylor Swift happy and in love. She has had many relationships, most of them pretty high-profile, and fans are always wondering when she's going to find her soulmate and "The One." After all, the fact that she has had many relationships means that she has had many breakups, too, and she always writes about them.
Fans and critics say that she's acting the opposite of how she did before, including keeping this relationship as private as possible, according to the Cheat Sheet. Many think that this is totally it for Taylor and she and Joe are going to stay together. Awwww.
2 Big Dreams: Joe's Got His Own Cool Career Going On
Had we heard of Joe Alwyn before he became Taylor Swift's man? Maybe we had because it turns out that he's an actor and he's been doing really well for himself.
According to Your Tango, an anonymous source has said about Joe's acting ambition, “Joe is determined to make it as an actor in his own right, and not to be known just as Taylor Swift’s boyfriend."
Some of the British actor's credits include the 2016 movie Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, the 2017 movie The Sense of an Ending, and the upcoming Boy Erased. He's also in a 2018 movie called Mary Queen of Scots.
1 So Sweet: He's A Fan Of Hers
We all want to date someone who thinks that we're so talented and amazing and really believes in us. This is true of us regular people so we can only assume that it's also true for celebrities. When your career at such a high, massive level, you can't be with someone who doesn't think that you're always at the top of your game. And since T-Swift is only going to put out more amazing albums after another, it's especially crucial that she find someone who thinks that she's the best.
Thankfully, Joe is "supportive" of Taylor and her career, according to People magazine. That's so sweet and really awesome to hear.
