In a new essay she published in Elle magazine, Taylor Swift revealed the 30 life lessons she managed to learn before turning 30. Among many interesting things for the fans to know, Taylor also addressed the reason why she is determined to keep her relationship with Joe Alwyn as private as possible.
The two have been dating for about two years now, but their romance is still very much a mystery.
Now, the songstress finally explained why she likes to keep it all under wraps.
Swift wrote: ‘For too long, the projected opinions of strangers affected how I viewed my relationships. Whether it was internet consensus of who would be right for me, or what they thought was ‘couples goals’ based on pictures I posted on Instagram. That stuff is not real. For an approval seeker like me, it was a really important lesson to learn to have my OWN value system of what I truly want.’
Sure enough, the pop star has disabled her comments on Instagram and almost exclusively posts official information on the account, rather than personal, such as promoting music and other projects.
Granted, she does share cute pics of her cats, Meredith and Olivia sometimes, but that is hardly Kardashian-Jenner level of personal life sharing.
That being said, despite sometimes appearing in public together, at private events, or hiking, Taylor and Joe have never actually posted a pic of themselves online.
Seeing how this is a lasting relationship, it is safe to say that staying away from social media is good for her love life.
After all, the singer hasn’t had the best luck with romance, so maybe she’s finally found the recipe for success in that field! Talk about life lessons!
