Taylor Swift Reveals She’s ‘Not Ready’ to Take This Next Step in Her Relationship, Despite ‘Happiness’ With Joe Alwyn

Taylor Swift definitely has it all. A booming music career, supportive friends and family, two of the most adorable cats, and even a loving boyfriend who she’s blissfully happy with.

Though she’s pretty content with life at the moment, many people have wondered when the singer’s finally going to settle down, especially now that she’s the big 3-0.

While she’s been asked this question multiple times in the past, Swift made a rare statement about taking that next big step in her brand new Netflix documentary, Miss Americana.

Swift admits that her life’s just too hectic at the moment

Many people might look forward to settling down with their significant others and having kids, but not Swift.

While the singer has shut down questions about marriage and children in the past, she recently opened up about why she has yet to settle down.

In a clip from her Netflix documentary, Swift explains that the next few years of her life are already planned out and becoming a mother and wife right now just wouldn’t be ideal.

“There’s part of me that feels like I’m 57 years old, but there’s part of me that’s definitely not ready to have kids and definitely not ready for all that grown-up stuff,” she said. “I kind of don’t really have the luxury of figuring stuff out, though, because my life is planned two years ahead of time. Literally, in two months, they’ll come at me with dates for the next tour.”

Although she’s not ready to settle down and start a family of her own, the “ME!” singer made it clear that she couldn’t be happier with Alwyn and likes where they are in their relationship.

“I felt alone, I felt really bitter,” she says in the documentary as she’s opening up about how she fell for her beau. “I felt sort of like a wounded animal lashing out. I figured I had to reset everything. I had to reconstruct an entire belief system for my own personal sanity. I also was falling in love with someone who had a wonderfully normal, balanced life.”

“Even though it was [a] really horrible [time], I was happy,” she gushed. “But I wasn’t happy in the way I was trained to be happy. It was happiness without anyone else’s input. We were just…happy.”

The singer’s rejected answering questions about marriage and kids

Though Swift prefers to keep details surrounding her personal life under wraps, that hasn’t stopped reporters and media outlets from asking her about when/if she’s planning to settle down.

In May 2019, the singer was quick to shut down the German RTL radio interviewer who asked her about taking that next big step with Alwyn seeing as though she would be turning 30 at the end of the year.

“I really doubt men get asked the same question when they turn 30,” she replied. “I’m not going to answer that question.”

Since she and Alwyn continue to keep their relationship private, there’s really no telling if they’ve even discussed taking this next step in their relationship?

Whether or not they’ve talked about settling down together, we can clearly see that the couple’s just living in the moment and enjoying their time together.

Maybe now that Swift’s set the record straight on this topic, people will finally stop asking her about having kids/ marrying Alwyn and rather about the future of her music career.
