As huge fans of Harry Styles, we’re still on a high from his SNL performances — and now we get to hear about his personal life! In an interview with Rolling Stone, Styles opened up about his relationship with Taylor Swift, and we are 100% all ears.

If you Swift/Styles fans will recall, the pair began dating in the fall of 2012, but called it quits by January. It’s also long-been rumored that the brief romance and subsequent breakup inspired several of Swift’s songs.

And now Styles is finally commenting on that rumor-inducing time (when he was just 18 years old), specifically about a much-photographed day date in Central Park when the new couple were first getting to know each other.

“When I see photos from that day [in Central Park],” he shares with Rolling Stone, “I think: Relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier. I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date.”
