It’s rumored they’ve been dating for nearly two years, but Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have never spoken about their relationship—that is, until now. In a new interview with Vogue UK, Alwyn opened up about his relationship with the mega-famous pop star, and he totally understands why people are so interested in hearing about their mysterious romance.
The couple has stepped out in public together only a handful of times since they reportedly began dating in October 2016, though Alwyn has been spotted at Swift’s Reputation tour shows a number of times. Fans have also speculated that many of the songs on Reputation are inspired by Alwyn, and the actor has (sort of) returned the favor, sending Swift a low-key nod on his now-public Instagram in May. Needless to say, Swifties are invested in this relationship, patiently waiting for some grand display of affection.
Unfortunately, it seems like a romantic red carpet stroll or joint interview probably won’t happen anytime soon, because even though Alwyn discussed his relationship with the magazine, he left things as secretive as ever.
What does it all mean!?
Of course, we completely understand why Swift and Alwyn prefer to keep their relationship out of the public eye as much as possible, and we fully respect their privacy. We can’t imagine the intense scrutiny that comes with dating (or being) one of the most famous humans on the planet, so we’re totally cool with the pair keeping things under wraps.
You do you, guys.
