The Past, Present & Future of Taylor and Jake

So now that Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal are def a couple, it’s time to take a look at how it all began, what’s their current status, and what comes next!

First let’s dig into the first few days of their somewhat surprising romance. How did these two meet? Well, according to sources, it was all Jake’s doing—he asked his “people” to set him up with her.

Insiders said Jake thought Taylor was so cute and sweet, and has a thing for southern girls—explains his relationship with Reese Witherspoon.
Shortly after, Gwyneth Paltrow entered into the picture. Yes, Gwyneth. How you ask?

According to Us Magazine, Paltrow hosted a private dinner party on Nov. 13 for them at her home in London.

"Gwyneth seems to have played a role in their relationship," the source adds.

And things seem to be going strong for them—we’ve all seen the coffee shop date pics around the country. And now they may be moving on to sleepovers!

A source tells People that Taylor went straight to Jake’s home in the Hollywood Hills Wednesday night after getting off a private plane.

And then yesterday they went out for a drive in his Audi, tailed by the paps, which is what prompted them to call for a police escort.

"Jake and Taylor seemed to be catching up and were chatting nonstop in the car," the onlooker says. "Jake was making Taylor laugh and she looked very happy.”

As for Jake’s family, Maggie Gyllenhaal seems to have bonded with his new girlfriend. A source tells Us Magazine, "Even though Maggie and Reese had a lot more in common, Maggie thinks Taylor is easier to be around. Reese was a whole production. It was all about her. It's not like that with Taylor."

Maggie and Taylor looked pretty chummy walking with her daughter Ramona just a few days after Thanksgiving in Nashville. Seems like everyone approves! And could they not? Taylor is like every parents’ dream child, and definitely the kind of girl you wouldn’t mind your brother dating!

Jake and Taylor have also already met each other’s parents. Taylor reportedly canceled Thanksgiving plans with her family in order to spend it with Jake's in NYC. After their weekend on the east coast, they both jetted off to Nashville where Jake meet Taylor's fam.

Up next for Gyllenswift? Well, her 21st bday is this Monday. But Swift says she doesn’t want to party it up like most do when they hit legal drinking age. She plans on being pretty sober Sally-ish, and having a party at home at her LA condo.

Taylor said, “I definitely want a winter-themed birthday – Christmas-themed…And I’d really like to have it in my condo. I think that would be wonderful…(I’m) not, by nature, a party girl…It’ll be cool that I’ll be able to go to a lot of concerts that my friends always go to and I sit at home because it’s 21 and over.”

“Other than that, I don’t think I’m going to all of a sudden start being in love with the idea of going to a club…I like to dance around and have fun with my friends and we have a blast, but I’ve never felt really compelled to be drunk and I don’t think that’s terribly awful…(but) I’m not one of those people who’s never going to have a drink.”

All in moderation! Taylor can literally do no wrong! We just hope Jake doesn’t get bored of that!
