Taylor Swift has been criticized for exposing her love life, and for showing all her heartbreak episodes caused by the breakups with her boyfriends. Although for many this has only been to attract attention, the truth is that those experiences have inspired her to compose a large number of songs that have become world hits.
In a compilation of her most famous songs, it was possible to create a list of seven songs dedicated to several ex-boyfriends of the American singer. These songs represent her personal experiences, and she made them with the intention of helping other people who are going through a similar situation, and also to show that no woman loses value due to the number of partners she has had since it has been strongly criticized thus.
Taylor was only 19 years old when she began a romantic relationship with Joe Jonas, at that time she was very excited to go out with this famous young member of The Jonas Brothers, but a brief call changed everything. Joe Jonas ended his relationship with Swift with a 25-second call, this fact marked her so much that she wrote the song “Forever and Always” released in 2008.
A year later, she began her relationship with Taylor Lautner, an actor from the Twilight saga. This relationship did not last much more than a few months and due to the breakup, the singer dedicated to him the song “Back To December”, released in 2010.
At the end of 2010, the singer formalized her relationship with actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and just three months later, they would end their relationship. Sources close to the singer have indicated that the actor looked down on her for the style of her music and stated that he did not have the best of attitudes towards her. For this reason, the singer dedicated two songs to her failed relationship with the actor: “All Too Well” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, both released in 2012.
It was in mid-2012 that the singer dated Connor Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy’s grandson. The breakup with him was on good terms and they preferred to remain as friends despite the fact that she was not liked by the boy’s family, since on one occasion they asked her to leave a private event of the Kennedy family. The singer wrote the song “Begin Again,” also released in 2012.
One of the relationships that most affected the singer was her brief fling with Harry Styles, she dedicated the song “I knew you were trouble” to him, and confessed that it was for him during his presentation at the 2013 BIT awards.
In February 2015, she began a relationship with Calvin Harris and ended it in May 2016. In 2019 she premiered the song “I Forgot that you existed” and it is assumed that she dedicated it to her ex, due to the attacks on her due to legal problems with the rights of the song “This is what you came for”, a song they wrote together.
