5 Things You Can Learn About Relationships from Taylor Swift
No one sings about relationships more than Taylor Swift. The girl’s got some serious feelings (and she’s not afraid to share them). No matter how old you are, there are a few things you can learn about relationships from America’s pop sweetheart:
5. Sometimes Harsh Is Necessary
When Swifty told her ex that they were never getting back together, like ever, she proved to ladies everywhere that sometimes putting a foot down is the only way to gain respect. Forget dragging out that breakup over several months — a good cut and run is the healthier way to move on from a bad relationship.
4. There Are Plenty Of Fish In The Sea
Never one to stay single for too long, Tay loves to explore the Hollywood boy scene; and while she might get some flack for the variety of relationships she’s been in, we can’t hate! Your 20s is a great time to play the field and find out what (or who) turns you on. No apologies necessary.
3. You Should Always Be Yourself
What’s the point in pretending to be something you’re not? Taylor seems to confidently rock who she is no matter who she’s dating and that’s definitely admirable! If you’re emotional then be emotional. Are you a little crazy? Be crazy! The mark of an awesome relationship is one where everyone gets to show up as his or her authentic self.
2. Creativity Can Help You Through A Breakup
So maybe you won’t end up writing the next hit pop song, but if there’s one thing to be learned about relationships from Taylor Swift it’s that creativity can help heal heart wounds. Whether you paint, write, sing or dance, art is great therapy in those tough times!
1. Keep Your Friends Close
You can’t go anywhere these days without seeing pictures of Taylor and her giant group of girlfriends — and that’s kind of awesome! Dating is always fun, but in the end it’s your friends that have really got your back. They’ll be there when your relationships are great and when they come to an end too, so make sure you remind them how much you care.
