Every situation where Taylor Swift has saved your life
Her music is basically therapy
There’s nothing better than belting out the lyrics to a song that perfectly sums up how you feel when you’re sad or pissed off. And when it comes to boys, there is no pop princess there for us quite like Taylor Swift.
From the first date to the break-up, from fifteen to twenty-two, from unrequited love to O-M-G this is forever love, Taylor has had your back…
The girl he told you not to worry about
She says: “Girls just don’t seem to like me” and “ I just get on better with boys.” He says: “Honestly babe we’re just friends, there’s nothing to worry about,” and “You’d actually really like her if you got to know her.” Two months later you’ve been dumped and they’re Facebook official.
Taylor’s solution: Better Than Revenge
Best line: “She’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress.”
The long distance boyfriend
So you and your boyfriend from home decided to stay together. You’re halfway through term. You’re at Durham and he’s at Exeter. He’s about to go to a safe sex ball where posh babes strut around in lingerie, his replies are getting slower and no matter how many nudes you send him, you can’t get back your Snapchat streak.
Taylor’s solution: Spark’s Fly
Best line: “Drop everything now meet me in the pouring rain.”
It’s a Thursday morning, you went so hard on sports night that you’ve slept through all your lectures and you’re feeling very sorry for yourself. So sorry that you want a boyfriend to cuddle you, play with your hair and bring you nice food. Unfortunately, the most action you’ve had matching a creepy local on tinder.
Taylor’s solution: Love Story (no your name isn’t Juliet and no one is asking for your hand in marriage but we can dream)
Best line: “I talked to your dad go pick out a white dress it’s a love story baby just say yes.”
You’ve been on and off so many times that you can’t remember how it all started or why you even got together in the first place. Your parents can’t keep up and hate him. You find yourself saying cringe things like “You don’t understand there’s just SO much history between us.”
No hun, they do understand, cause your mates have been picking up the pieces when you get hysterical on the group chat daily. They love you but, quite frankly, they’re bored of it.
Taylor’s solution: We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
Best line: “So he calls me up and he’s like I still love you and I’m like I just, I mean this is exhausting you know, like, we are never getting back together. Like, ever.”
The fit one in your lecture
Okay so you’ve literally never spoken to him, but he’s cute, really cute. You watch him type away on his macbook and think ooh he’s so intelligent that’s so sexy. Halfway through he checks his Facebook mid lecture and you think, oo a bad boy.
Taylor’s solution: You belong with me
Best line: “Think I know where you belong, think I know it’s with me.”
He’s a fuckboy, deep down you knew he was a fuckboy, but you fucked him anyway and now he’s fucked you over.
Taylor’s solution: I Knew You Were Trouble
Best line: “And the saddest fear, comes creeping in, that you never loved me or her or anyone or anything.”
The SIW (Strong Independent Woman)
Say what you like, eat what you like, wear what you like, sing what you like, shag who you like – because no matter what you do, haters gonna hate and you dgaf. Bonus points if you wear a top with “haters gonna hate” and a unicorn on it like Taylor did.
Taylor’s solution: Shake it Off
Best line: “Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake.”
