Throughout the years that we’ve known Taylor Swift has gotten more and more private as time has went on. First we saw her hiding from paparazzi behind her purse. Taylor gave us a glimpse through the window into their relationship on her album “Lover”, which has several songs that are obviously inspired by Joe. Like “London Boy”, “Paper Rings”, or the titular track “Lover”. Neither of them are really known for speaking candidly about each other or their romantic relationship. This has definitely been Taylor’s most private relationship to date. In the past, she’s had super high profile romances with people like Calvin Harris, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tom Hiddleston. But Taylor and Joe have found success in their relationship by doing what they can to keep it as private, and personal as possible. That’s why over the three years that they’ve been together, we only have a handful of photos of Taylor and Joe together. Her and Joe started dating publicly in September 2016 after knowing each other for quite a long time.
Before that, she had dated Calvin Harris for a little over 1 year from 2015 to 2016. And that relationship was about as public as can be – plenty of photo ops, red carpets, and paparazzi pics that got the whole world talking. As we all know, that relationship ended in disaster, resulting in a photo of Taylor and Tom Hiddleston kissing on some rocks, a Twitter rant by Calvin Harris, and a lot of back and forth he said, she said. It wasn’t cute. But it seems like Taylor and Joe’s model of secrecy is working out for them. Joe did an interview earlier this week on November 6 with Entertainment Tonight to promote his new movie “Harriet”, which tells the true story of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery in pre-civil war America. But in the interview, Joe also talked about how he’s survived the past three years dating one of the most famous people in the world. And his advice seems pretty simple and straightforward. He said “I just don’t really engage with anything that I don’t want to engage with.”
