Taylor Swift Gives Young Fan Advice on Unrequited Love

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Everyone on the face of the planet has dealt with unrequited love—if

you haven't, then you're in the minority, and you're a lucky duck. But

there's only one pop star who has practically built a career off the

subject, and that's Taylor Swift.Which is probably why one of her fans

thought Taylor would be the perfect person to reachout to about her

own personal dead-end crush.

A young Swiftiannamed Hannah aka Instagram user @sherbetswift tagged

Taylor in a long Instagram comment about why her girl-next-door role

was breaking her heart.

Hannah's comment read: "There's a guy Taylor, a guy who's sweet and

charming and makes me laugh. Aguy who said sorry for eating in front

of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up

across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who

wasmy first best friend. A guy who I met when I was seven and he was

nine. A guy who this one time, when we were younger, said thatI was

'like' his girlfriend because I was a girl and his friend. I wish. A

guy who I have the biggest crush in the whole wide world on, and he'll

never like me back. (And he has a girlfriend who he adores and she's

prettyand has an amazing figure and is actually nice to me). A guy who

will never like me back. @taylorswift can you give me some advice

maybe. I love you.

Hannah ❤️"A lot of fans tag celebrities in their posts, but few

actually expect a response. In this case, Hannah got one, and it's

pretty much the best advice about unrequited love that anyone has ever


First, Taylor started by noticing—along with the rest ofus—that

Hannah's eyesare breath-taking."Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You

have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself),"

Swift wrote, then continued on. "Okay. About this guy. I think we grow

up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that

lasts forever or is fully realized.

When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is

'howlong were you two together?' As if your pain can be determined by

how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I

don't think that's how itworks. I think unrequited love is just as

valid as any other kind. It's just as crushing and just as thrilling.

No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that

what you are doing is selflessand beautiful and kind.You are loving

someone purely because you love them,not because you think you'll ever

have your affections reciprocated.You are admiring something for its

beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of

person who loves selflessly.

I think someday you'll find someone who loves you in that exact same

way."I'm not sure there's anything else to even add to that?

A lot of pop stars talk about being role models, but seeing a fan

that's hurting and actually taking the time to reachout and share


That's incredible.

Thank you Taylor, not just for giving this advice to Hannah, but for

giving it to all of up.
