What Does Joe Alwyn’s Family Think About Taylor Swift?

Taylor Swift is known for having one of the most drama-filled personal lives of any popular musician. Since she burst onto the scene in 2006, Swift’s tendency to write and sing songs that are directly inspired by her boyfriends has made her immensely popular with her legions of fans.

However, Swift currently keeps her love life off the radar and is happily in the longest-lasting relationship of her life. Swift’s boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, could possibly be her Mr. Right.

Whom did Swift date before Joe Alwyn?

Taylor Swift wore her heart on her sleeve from day one, and though her relationships did not always end cleanly, sometimes they resulted in hit songs. In 2007, Swift had a whirlwind romance with Joe Jonas, which ended when he broke things off via a brief phone call. Following the breakup with Jonas, Swift dated another teen idol, Twilight star Taylor Lautner. They only dated for a few months before their summer romance fizzled out, and Swift moved on to famous rocker John Mayer. It seems like Mayer might have dumped Swift in the end, because her hit song “Dear John” told the story of an older man who toys with the emotions of a younger woman.  

Swift’s other famous exes include actor Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor Kennedy. She also had a brief fling with “One Direction” star Harry Styles. In 2016, Swift started dating celebrity DJ Calvin Harris, a lanky redhead who seemed like Swift’s perfect match. Their relationship went down in flames, with the exes taking shots at each other on Twitter, even as Swift moved on to briefly date The Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston. For a little while, it seemed as though Taylor Swift might take a break from dating.

But then she met British actor Joe Alwyn sometime in late 2016 or early 2017, and sparks flew immediately. It is not clear exactly when or how they met, but it seems likely that the two first crossed paths while Swift was still dating Calvin Harris. 

Do Alwyn’s parents like Swift?

Unlike all of Swift’s previous relationships, her partnership with Alwyn, who maintains a steady career in British film and television, is kept strictly under the radar. The two have not even confirmed that they are a couple to any media outlet. Reportedly, Alwyn is the one who proposed that they not talk about their relationship and consistently refuses to comment on Swift when asked by reporters about their dating life. 

It seems as though Swift loves the newfound privacy, and it must be working – Swift and Alwyn have been together for well over two years now, Swift’s longest-lasting relationship by far. While eager fans want to know all the details of their union, Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are dead set on keeping things mum. They don’t frequent many parties or events together and usually arrive separately to red carpet events or premieres, to avoid being targeted by a barrage of questions. The private pair also make sure to keep their relationship off of social media, and haven’t shared any selfies or snaps of each other on any platform.

In spite of their under-the-radar romance, many seem to think that they are the ideal match. Reportedly, Alwyn’s parents love Swift, and Swift’s parents also adore Alwyn. Swift is known for being especially close to her family, especially her mother, so their input on any potential life partner would be very important to her. While recent reports seem to indicate that Swift and Alwyn could get engaged sometime soon, don’t expect either of them to announce it. It seems as though Swift’s days of documenting her love life through references in her songs is definitely over – at least for now.
