The fact that this particular love story came when the singer absolutely didn’t expect it – while she was carrying some of her career’s worst headlines – makes it as close to a fairytale you’ll likely come across in real life.
She was ready for a shift when she first connected with the classically trained actor being tired of the public making sport out of her dating life. She went to great lengths to protect what was hers, employing all of the body guards, loyal friends, private jets, oversized hoodies at her disposal and secret apartments, sensing theirs could be a romance with some longevity.
The gamble has clearly paid off several years on. Ever so slightly lifting the veil on their romance means the 29-year-old was comfortable sharing with his Instagram followers a look at Benjamin Buttons, Swift’s kitten – proving they’re quarantining in the same spot currently.
Into a romance with her Lover, her words at some interviews were a rare insight.
She decided to treat their burgeoning romance with care as she would with digital files for an upcoming album (According to friend Ed Sheeran, he once received, hand delivered in a locked briefcase, a single track on an iPad).
An insider told E! News that it was the “You Need to Calm Down” singer’s goal to keep it a secret – adding that she “barely told any of her friends.”
Even if their methods seemed extreme at times, certainly, they were effective. An insider told E! News, that staying out of the spotlight and being low-key has really helped their relationship – it made things more sacred and special.
Swift can be confident in her choice, with more than three years of partnership under their belt. This level of security she found has only given her career a boon.- Advertisement -
In an article penned to pass along the wisdom she’d gained during her 30 years on earth, she shared with Elle that she remembers people asking her, “What are you gonna write about if you ever get happy?”, sharing that there is a common misconception that artists should be miserable to make good art – that suffering and art go hand and hand. She added that she feels grateful to have learned that wasn’t true – finding inspiration and happiness at the same time to her has been really cool.
