Taylor Swift: Love Doctor


Taylor Swift has learned a thing or two about love and relationships in her 24 years, if the lyrics to her music are any indication!  Today, July 25, one of Taylor’s many fans asked the singer/songwriter for advice about a boy she has a crush.  It turns out he already has a girlfriend.

Taylor, of course, knew just what to say:

“Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself) Okay. About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.”

Hannah then thanked Taylor by saying “I feel like you are the big sister I don’t have.”

How adorable!  We all need some Taylor Swift advice in our back pocket when heartbreak comes around.  At least we have her amazing lyrics!

Now let’s watch a little throwback video that describes exactly how this situation feels.
