TDS Presents Taylor Swift's Love Calendar

Taylor Swift seems to have settled into domestic bliss with Brit actor Joe Alwyn, but she definitely had her share of flings in the run-up. On her 30th birthday, let's look back on those she loved and tossed.

July - October 2008

Taylor Swift dated Joe Jonas, who infamously broke up with her over a 27-second phone call. That’s a pretty short conversation, but it was long enough to give Tay material for "Last Kiss," "Forever and Always," and "Holy Ground."

August - December 2009

Taylor and Taylor Lautner hooked up after meeting on the set of the romantic comedyValentine's Day. Lautner is speculated to have inspired Swift's song "Back to December,” but wouldn’t “Back to August” be nicer?

December 2009 - February 2010

Tay had a brief romance with John Mayer, who's 13 years her senior. The guitar-slinger was pretty clearly the inspiration for the scathingSpeak Nowsong "Dear John."

July - October 2012

To get over the old dude, Tay turned cougar and began dating 18-year-old Conor Kennedy, who’s part of the iconic political dynasty. If you listen closely, you can hear memories of Conor in the lyrics to "Begin Again."

December 2012 - January 2013

Taylor went international for the first time with One Direction's Harry Styles. That didn't work out well. In fact, when opening the 2013Grammy Awardswith "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," she took a jab at Styles by using a fake British accent during the spoken portion of the song.

May - September 2016

Taylor set her sights onAvengersstar Tom Hiddleston at the annual Met Gala, and Taylor got what she wanted -- then tossed it aside. Tom’s the topic of her Reputation track “Getaway Car.”

September 2016 - Present

We're not sure exactly when Taylor started dating Joe Alwyn, but there's a hint in her cover of Earth, Wind and Fire's "September -- in which she changes the lyric from "the 21st day of September" to "the 28th day of September." So let's go with that -- and note that Joe's been the recipient of the nicest song she's written about a boy, the title track toLover.
