Taylor Swift is giving love advice now. Great, I’ve always wanted to find out how to date the wrong guy and break up with him six weeks later. Tell me how Taylor!
Taylor is taking on the duty of guest love advice columnist for Seventeen’s December/January issue.
Taylor gives advice to girls who are crushing on their guy friends but stuck in the dreaded friend zone.
“Remember that people have to fall in love with you because they want to, not because you want them to,” Taylor suggests.
Wait, isn’t that exactly the opposite of everything Taylor believes in? Every single one of her songs is like “Omigod I can’t wait for him to fall in love with me, can’t he see that we’re perfect together, let’s spend our lives together ohohohoh!”
Taylor continues: “Don’t chance ruining your friendship by chasing him before he’s ready. You just have to wait for him to turn it into something more, if and when he wants to.”
So let the guy make the first move, is what she’s saying. Don’t take charge and don’t initiate anything or else you’ll end up buying a mansion in Hyannis Port and regret it!
Oh also, if you want to avoid dating John Mayer like she did, Taylor says, “Deciding not to play games is the best way to go because it keeps things simple: If he messes it up by playing around with your heart, you’ll know he doesn’t deserve you. You were real with him, and he didn’t return the courtesy. Someone else will!”
Thanks Taylor! Now go out there and start a bunch of ultimately meaningless relationships everybody!
