The Taylor Swift-Joe Alwyn Relationship
When & Where Did They Meet?
Although the pair have kept the details of their relationship relatively hush-hush, it’s most likely that they met at the Met Gala in 2016. Swift was dating DJ Calvin Harris at the time.
When Did They Start Dating?
Neither Swift nor Alwyn have confirmed when they began going out, but they were spotted at a Kings of Leon concert with friends in October 2016, five months after meeting. In November, Taylor Swift attended the screening of Alwyn’s film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, although they were not seen together.
The couple were not reported to be dating in May 2017. Reports claimed that friends and family were long-aware of the romance, but the relationship was purposefully hidden from the media.
Which Taylor Swift Songs Are About Joe Alwyn?
While most people originally speculated that “Gorgeous” from Swift’s last album Reputation was about Harris or Hiddleston, it’s now clear that it was about Alwyn. The track “Dress” also allegedly referenced their first meeting.
On Taylor’s newest album Lover, there are plenty of tracks that seem to be about her new boyfriend. “London Boy” is a pretty obvious shoutout to Alwyn, who is British. The eponymous “Lover” is also almost certain to be about the actor, with soulful lyrics like “Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand? / With every guitar string scar on my hand / I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover” pointing to how serious their relationship is. It’s most likely that “False God”, “Paper Rings”, “Cornelia Street”, “Afterglow”, and the other love-focused songs are about Alwyn as well.
When Did They Move In Together?
Again, Swift and Alwyn are very private about their relationship, so they haven’t confirmed if they’ve moved in together or not. However, in “Lover”, Swift sings “This is our place, we make the rules”, which implies that they share a home. Plus, some sources have suggested that Swift has been shacking up with Joe in North London.
Are T-Swift & Alwyn Engaged?
Engagement rumours began swirling around in early 2019, especially with reports that Swift and Alwyn were just as in love as ever. The “Paper Rings” track also reveals that Swift is ready to tie the knot with Alwyn, with her singing, “I like shiny things but I’d marry you with paper rings”.
However, there’s been no news of a ring or engagement announcement as of yet. If a wedding is in the works, the couple and their closest friends are doing a great job of keeping it on the down-low.
How Is This Relationship Different From Swift’s Past Boyfriends?
The most noticeable difference between this relationship and Swift’s past lovers is that this seems to be her most serious – and also the least publicised. The two have kept most of the details of their relationship hidden from the public, and both have refused to shed more light on their relationship in interviews.
A Love Story For Taylor Swift
Swift has always worn her heart on her sleeve, but a string of bad high-profile relationships unfairly painted her as love-hungry or even crazy. Thankfully, it seems that she’s settled down with someone nice – and grown up a lot in the process. We wouldn’t be surprised if these two got married very, very soon!
