There was a time when Harry Styles and Taylor Swift were the it couple. They dated from October 2012 to January 2013. Since their breakup, neither Harry nor Taylor really wanted to talk about their relationship.
Now that a few years have passed, Styles decided to look back on that relationship during an interview with Rolling Stone. He also revealed why he thinks dating in the public eye can be extremely tricky.
“When I see photos from that day, I think: Relationships are hard, at any age,” Harry said when speaking about photos from his second date with Taylor in NYC’s Central Park. “And 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. I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure,” said the famous singer.
It’s worth noting that Taylor’s first pop album, 1989, which was released in 2014 had songs that were rumored to be about Styles. This is what Harry had to say about this: “I mean, I don’t know if they’re about me or not…but the issue is, she’s so good, they’re bloody everywhere. I write from my experiences; everyone does that. I’m lucky if everything we went through together helped create those songs. That’s what hits your heart.”
