"It seemed as if she was getting a little too attached, spending five million bucks on a house just to be near the guy." So what did Swift do?

As noted by MTV News, when Styles" One Direction bandmates giggled in an interview và said they were most looking forward khổng lồ seeing Taylor Swift at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, it seemed khổng lồ be proof that something was still going on between Swift and Styles.

Honestly, she couldn"t be a sweeter person," Styles said. "She"s a great girl & she"s extremely talented." 

Thought that"s all he said? Guess again, because Styles continued by calling Swift "one of those people you meet genuinely a nice person." There"s not a lot that excites us more than the idea of Styles praising us và describing our positive sầu attributes, and while we"re not entirely sure how Swift reacted lớn the interview, we would"ve sầu been over the moon about it. 

"Some people you meet and they are not as nice as you make them out khổng lồ be, but she"s one of those people who"s really just amazing," Styles concluded. Be still our beating hearts.

The rumpus surrounding Harry Styles & Taylor Swift came to the forefront when Mario Lopez, the host of the singing competition X Factor, commented on the budding relationship, as noted by MTV News.

So what was the khuyến mãi & why was Lopez involved? Swift was on the phối of X Factor rehearsing, as she was set lớn perkhung her tuy vậy "State of Grace" on show. She was spotted with Styles backstage, & the connection between them was enough for Lopez to lớn bring it up during his radio show the following Friday. "Taylor Swift was the special guest performer," Lopez shared, "and a little inside scoop for you: During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the baông xã and said, "Hey, Mario, how ya doing?" And I said, "What are you doing here?" And he sort of toward Taylor." 

We"re not entirely sure how much of Lopez"s business it was to mô tả such information, but the news sent fans for a loop. And, well, we love a little bit of tea — there"s no denying it.

Bless the gods that were controlling 2012, because they gave us the ultimate gift at the over of the year: a phokhổng lồ of Harry Styles và Taylor Swift on a lãng mạn park date together. As noted by MTV News, Swift & Styles were seen in Thành Phố New York City, và, as expected, fans were thrilled. 

The mạng internet was absolutely brimming with photos of them và the hashtag #Haylor, which really comes as no surprise lớn anyone.

There are so many dễ thương photos of Styles with Teasdale"s baby, Swift standing next khổng lồ the One Direction singer, và the two of them eating snacks. Ugh, we loved it. 

Styles & Swift seemed really comfortable with each other, walking with their arms intertwined. So what was the reaction from the fans? We"ll let this tweet E! News shared bởi the talking: "I JUST MET HARRY STYLES AND TOGETHER IN CENTRAL PARK." The excitement over these two was unreal.

Sadly, all good things come to an kết thúc, and that was certainly the case with Harry Styles and Taylor Swift. After just a few brief months together, the two called it quits, as a source exclusively told the Daily Mail that they had split up. "They were on holiday và had an almighty row," the source said. "They are two young stars at the top of their game so who knows what will happen in the future." 

An "almighty row"? Ok, there"s a lot khổng lồ unpachồng. Styles and Swift spent Christmas of 2012 apart, so they decided khổng lồ come together for New Year"s. The two of them traveled to lớn the British Virgin Islands for their holiday vacation, but things did not go to lớn plan. Cue the "almighty row," the argument that ultimately ended it all, though we"re not privy to the details.

As noted by Elle, the album seemed to hint at Swift"s relationship with Styles, so, naturally, fans started looking for clues that pointed khổng lồ the One Direction frontman. 

According to Teen Vogue, three songs off of 1989 alluded to Styles. Let"s start with the most obvious track literally titled "Style." We"ll let the name of the tuy nhiên vì chưng most of the talking, but it should be noted that the man chosen to star in the music đoạn phim for the song looked a little lượt thích Styles

What other tracks were reportedly about Styles? "I Knew You Were Trouble" & "Out of the Woods." Swift even said after performing "I Knew You Were Trouble" at the Grammys (via Teen Vogue), "It"s not hard to lớn access that emotion when the person the song is directed at is standing by the side of the stage watching." Wow, ok.

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up at the beginning of 2013, but even two years later, things appeared to be a little tense between them. As noted by The Washington Post, Swift hosted a Billboard Awards after-các buổi party, attended by a bunch of A-danh mục celebrities. Some of the attendees included none other than the members of One Direction, with one notable exception: Styles. 

As reported by The Post, Styles left Las Vegas, Nev., where the award ceremony was held, & departed for Los Angeles, leaving his bandmates behind. They clearly did not mind ruffling feathers with Styles, because they all went khổng lồ Swift"s các buổi tiệc nhỏ despite the history their mate had with the pop star. Swift was linked to DJ Calvin Harris at the time, so honestly Styles" attendance could"ve been pretty awkward. 

"(Harry) realised the buổi tiệc nhỏ wasn"t a good idea, so flew back lớn LA solo," a source told The Post. A spokesperson for One Direction merely stated that Styles "didn"t stay in Vegas after the awards, so didn"t attover any after-show buổi tiệc nhỏ."

Despite them dating in 2012 và having only been together for four months, Harry Styles & Taylor Swift"s relationship remained a subject of interest. It"s not hard lớn understvà why: They were both at the top of their pop careers and seemingly had a lot in common. But after the breakup, both kept the details pretty private, và Styles even went to some lengths lớn avoid talking about Swift completely. Most notably, Styles avoided answering questions during a game of "Never Have I Ever" while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2015

Styles và his One Direction bandmates were asked if they had ever been the subject of someone else"s tuy vậy — it was DeGeneres" way of asking the question we all wanted to lớn know: Did Styles know about Swift"s songs that seemed so obviously about him? 

The game is played with paddles that say "I have" or "I have not" on either side, and when asked the question, Styles put up the "I have sầu not" sign. Naturally, DeGeneres called hyên on it. "I"m not having fun!" Styles later exclaimed during the game.

Taylor Swift exposes a lot of her emotional experiences through her songwriting, but she almost always keeps a tight lid on her personal life when asked about it in interviews. She revealed once that she "never names names," but, as noted by Elle, she did finally address her relationship with Harry Styles. While talking about the relationship that inspired her tuy nhiên "Out of the Woods" in a Grammy Museum video, Swift said that, during the relationship, the "number one feeling" she experienced was anxiety. 

"It felt very fragile, it felt very tentative sầu," Swift said. "And it always felt like, "Okay, what"s the next road block? What"s the next thing that"s gonmãng cầu deter this? How long vì chưng we have sầu before this turns inlớn just an awful mess and we break up?" 

Swift said that things were so rocky that she didn"t know if they would break up in a month"s time or in three days, that the dynamic between them was not healthy or stable. "It doesn"t mean that it"s not special & extraordinary," Swift said, but it"s safe khổng lồ say that she and that man, presumably Styles, were not meant lớn be.

Five years after the photos of Harry Styles & Taylor Swift"s Central Park date went viral, Styles finally talked about their time together. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Styles was asked about Swift & their relationship, và after spending some time in the bathroom presumably to collect himself and his thoughts, he returned khổng lồ the interview & shared that his time with Swift was a learning experience. 

"When I see photos from that day  I think: Relationships are hard, at any age," he said. "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." Styles went on khổng lồ share that he dated Swift as she was someone that he "really ", & he thought at the time that their relationship would be "that simple." 

"I just wanted it to be a normal date," he shared, but if one thing is true, it"s that two international pop stars don"t exactly have sầu normal lives.

We can"t even imagine what it must be lượt thích to have songwriting talent, let alone to lớn have the talent that Taylor Swift has. Her songs are so indicative of her relationships & emotions, and she has often alluded lớn different parts of her own life with her music. Of course, a number of songs off of her hit album 1989 are believed lớn reference her relationship with Harry Styles, and while he had avoided the topic in the past, Styles finally opened up about the songs khổng lồ Rolling Stone

"I mean, I don"t know if they"re about me or not ..." he said, "but the issue is, she"s so good, they"re bloody everywhere." Styles said that, lượt thích Swift, he writes his songs based on his own life experience, and he said that he considered himself "lucky" if Swift in fact did use aspects of their relationship khổng lồ create such popular songs. As mentioned by Rolling Stone, some fans speculate that the One Direction song "Perfect" — which Styles co-wrote — was about Swift.

"That"s the stuff that"s hardest khổng lồ say, & it"s the stuff I talk least about," Styles said, noting, "I"m never going khổng lồ tell anybody toàn thân everything."

There are a couple of songs that really mark some iconic birthdays, "Sweet 16" by Hilary Duff, "Dancing Queen" by ABBA, & "22" by Taylor Swift. No birthday is complete without these tracks playing on a loop, & even though he was fairly distanced from his relationship with Swift at the time, Harry Styles got the birthday tuy vậy memo. 

As noted by Elle, Styles was giving a concert in March 2018 when he was told that it was one of the audience member"s 22nd birthday. So while there may have sầu been a little bit of pain surrounding his former relationship with Swift, Styles couldn"t resist singing part of his ex"s tuy nhiên. He went up lớn the mic và started, "Twenty-two. She"s 22, okay. I don"t know about..." The crowd of spectators roared with excitement. 

Styles probably didn"t even get the entire line of "I don"t know about you, but I"m feeling 22" out because of the noise from the fans, but it was a great moment nevertheless. And of course, the mạng internet was wild with tweets referencing the moment.

Notably, Styles had previously tweeted out that he was "feeling 22" when he turned 22 in năm 2016.

From 2012 all the way to lớn 2021, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have sầu come a long way. Swift released even more iconic và groundbreaking music, and Styles officially launched his solo career. They both climbed the pop ibé ladder all the way to the top, và naturally, Swift & Styles reunited at the 2021 Grammy Awards. 

As noted by Page Six, the two shared a really friendly conversation during one of the show"s down moments, & the exchange really did look lovely. Styles went over lớn the table where Swift was sitting, và although the conversation was not overheard, both looked like they were enjoying each other"s company. Be still our little Haylor hearts. 

To make matters even better, Swift was on her feet clapping when Styles took trang chủ the Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance for his tuy nhiên "Watermelon Sugar," as noted by Elle. We love sầu to see it.
