Taylor Swift Started Hanging Out With Her New Boyfriend About A Month After She Was Done With Tom Hiddleston
A whole month? That must be some kind of record for Taylor Swift. We’re slowly learning more (aka Taylor gave her publicist the go-ahead to release additional details) about Taylor Swift and her current piece of the moment, British actor Joe Alwyn. Last week we were introduced to the latest boy whose name Taylor has been writing inside her diary. Tay Tay and Joe Joe have been secretly dating for a few months, and she did the not-at-all-creepy thing of renting a house near his parent’s house in London. Now a source is telling People magazine when they got together.
Taylor and Joe were reportedly first spotted together after a Kings of Leon concert that Taylor attended with her squad last October. A month later, Taylor was seen going to Joe’s movie Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk with her mom and the Haim girls in Los Angeles. You might be thinking that’s just a case of Taylor going to see a movie with some friends. But considering not a whole lot of people saw Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, I’d say it was probably more of a “Supporting my man’s gig” situation.
The source goes on to say that all their initial hangouts weren’t done in front of a pack of paps like usual, because she’s “learned.”
“Taylor has been insanely private about her relationship with Joe. She wanted to get to know him without any chaos. She has learned from the past.”
Another source claims neither Joe nor Taylor are in it for the attention. Hahahahah – oh wait, I think the source was being serious.
“Joe’s a very normal, down-to-earth guy. He’s private and low-key. They’re on the same page on how to handle the attention.”
This new information also gives us a clue as to how much downtime Taylor had after she called it quits with her previous British boyfriend Tom Hiddleston. Taylor and Joe first started hanging out in October. Taylor and Tom wrapped up their cringe parade at the beginning of September. So, a little over a month. A month may not seem like very long to you or I, but that’s more than enough time for Taylor. She’s such a pro at relationship recovery. I bet she can break up, lip sync “He Wasn’t Man Enough For Me” with her cats, choose a new dude, and schedule the first ice cream stroll in under 10 minutes. The rest of the month was probably spent deciding whether she was going to get papped wearing a gold necklace engraved with Joey or a more-subtle J.
