After spending her birthday together, things seem to be getting serious between Taylor Swift and her new beau, Harry Styles. Now call us crazy, but we think Taylor may have found a keeper this time.
For her 23rd birthday on Thursday, Swift let the One Direction heartthrob whisk her way to his hometown in England -- where he had a sweet surprise waiting.
"Harry Styles bought 23 custom cupcakes for Taylor Swift from Custom Cupcake Company in Chapelford, Warrington this morning," a rep from the bakery told Us Weekly. "The cakes were a selection of 12 flavors, including ones filled with candy floss and a mint liqueur center. It was kept very secret to make sure there wasn't a mob waiting to greet him when he pulled up."
(We're guessing when she found out, she made a face like this!)
Of course, we all know by now that Swift's relationships usually don't last past the three-month mark. She's reportedly been dating Harry since November, when they were spotted holding hands on the X Factor set. Is their romance doomed to die before Valentines Day, or will this one go the distance? Here are a few reasons why Harry may actually be the one Taylor's been waiting for!
1. They live in the same world.
We're guessing that most of Harry's girlfriends are uncomfortable with those screaming teenage fans -- but who understands screaming teenage fans better than Taylor Swift? Sure, her ex-boyfriend Taylor Lautner was also shadowed by swooning girls, and that didn't work out. But Lautner was a stranger to the world of pop music, whereas Swift and Styles can trade stories from the road.
2. She's already written a song about him.
Allegedly! "I Knew You Were Trouble," off of Swift's album Red, is rumored to be about a fling she had with Styles in April. Without that whole writing-a-song thing hanging over their heads, the relationship is bound to be a lot less tense. Plus, if she disses him on her next album, he could always write his own song in retaliation -- unlike poor Jake Gyllenhaal, rumored subject of "All Too Well!"
3. He's portable.
Remember how Taylor got in trouble for whisking Conor Kennedy away to Nashville this summer, right before he started high school? That's not going to happen with Styles, who, like Swift, is constantly jetting around the world. As long as they can find a halfway point, they'll be good.
4. He's her age(ish).
Okay, so Styles is 18 and Swift is 23. But unlike her last 18-year-old boyfriend, Styles is living the life of an independent adult. Plus, ever heard the theory that people who become famous at a young age become emotionally "frozen" at that age? Swift reached mega-stardom with her Fearless album, released when she was -- yes! -- 18. So really, she and Harry may be on the same page. (And that makes her relationships with way-older men like John Mayer seem super inappropriate.)
If we know Swift, she won't stick around if she thinks a relationship isn't worth it. But we're officially on Team Harry -- so hopefully he has a few more nice surprises up his sleeve for the holidays!
