Ten things Taylor Swift taught us about love
If ever there was somebody who knows about love, it's got to be Taylor Swift. After all, she's pretty much written the 21st century book of love. Sure, she's only 23, but even so, she seems to know a thing or two about relationships -- god knows, the girl's certainly been in enough of them. Alas, there is much that can be gleaned from examining her vast catalog. But who's got that kind of time? Uh, we do, obviously, and so we've put together the cliff notes. Keep reading for the ten things Taylor taught us about love.
10. Trust your instincts
They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but on the battlefield of love, even your enemies can become your lovers given the right opportunity. So trust your instincts. If he looks like trouble from the moment he walks in, steer clear entirely. You don't want to end up another notch in his belt.
9. Lack of communication kills any relationship
Not every relationship is an open book. There are complications -- walls up, lack of communication, self-consciousness. But you have to talk. Communicate. Otherwise she'll start to go crazy... like thrashing-in-the-middle-of-the-campus-library crazy. Then you're no longer living a relationship; you're living a tragedy.
8. Chivalry is not dead
Unless you have a high school sweetheart (lucky you!), you've got an ex. So does she. She will compare you to him. It's only natural. Do you open the door for her? He didn't. Do you stand up when she walks in the room? He didn't. So be a gentleman, chivalrous even. Only then will she forget about her ex and let love begin again with you.
