Who Is Taylor Swift Dating and Are They Getting Engaged Soon?

Taylor Swift just released a brand new single called “ME!” The video appears to be a very theatrical tribute to Broadway, and it features an equally impressive showman.

Brendon Urie, lead singer of Panic! At The Disco, performs the song with Swift and it’s an absolutely perfect combination. Both Urie and Swift are known for killer vocals and great performances… and they certainly did not disappoint. 

While she may have picked herself a perfect song/music video companion, fans can’t help but wonder whether Swift has chosen herself an equally perfect partner in real life.

Who is Taylor Swift dating, and are they getting engaged soon? Here’s what we know.

Taylor Swift is dating 28-year-old British actor, Joe Alwyn. The two met in May of 2016 at the Met Gala, but their relationship wasn’t confirmed for roughly a year. In fact, the media did not even catch wind of the relationship until May of 2017, when a source close to the couple opened up to Elle

When news of Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s relationship finally became public, the source stated that it wasn’t a “new couple alert or a secret relationship,” but instead that the relationship had only been kept secret from the media

Privacy has been key in the Swift-Alwyn romance

Although the couple have not often been seen publicly together, the rare moments caught by the media or revealed through Swift or Alwyn themselves has shown the two have built a very strong and loving foundation together. 

Taylor Swift has had her share of issues with overly public relationships. The most famous among her numerous short-lived, public romances was with actor, Tom Hiddleston, best known for his portrayal of Loki in the Thor and Avengers movie franchises. Swift and Hiddleston were photographed together so often that many began to believe the relationship was a publicity scam.

It ended after only three months, and taught Swift a valuable lesson about privacy.

With Joe Alwyn, the world has seen a complete turnaround. The relationship has been so private that the couple haven’t even yet walked the red carpet together, despite having dated since 2016 or 2017. While it can’t be confirmed, it is widely assumed this privacy is the source of their strong relationship. 

Are they getting engaged soon?

Earlier this year, a source close to the young couple revealed that the two were definitely considering marriage after about two years together. “Joe wants to marry her, and she wants to marry him. He’s just waiting to find the perfect time to propose. He wants to make it unforgettable and extremely special,” revealed the source.

While this was far from a confirmation that the two would soon be engaged, Taylor Swift’s newest music video (“ME!) has fans considering that she may already be engaged to her beau. But why? It seems that Swift dropped a hint in the video, and she even told fans to keep an eye out for something

When debuting the new music video, Taylor Swift said that “there’s a secret in the video I’ve been keeping for months.” T-Swift then went on to challenge fans to guess what that secret was. It didn’t take long for many fans to jump to the conclusion that it was a secret engagement.

The biggest clue is that, in the video for “ME!”, Brendon Urie proposes to Swift. Later, it appears that the “Our Song” singer is walking down a hallway with an engagement band on… and yes, she’s wearing it on THAT finger. 

Of course, there hasn’t yet been any confirmation of whether this was the big secret Taylor Swift was hiding in her music video. Since she challenge fans to figure it out, many believe Swift will eventually announce the “right answer” on social media or elsewhere. Until then, however, fans can only keep guessing.
