It’s the beginning of summer, which means it’s time for Taylor Swift to debut a new boyfriend. Last year it was Tom Hiddleston, the year before that it was Calvin Harris. There were quite a few in between, but who could forget about her three month long relationship in 2012 with Conor Kennedy, who, in case you were wondering, is turning 23 this summer.
This year, it’s British (aspiring) actor Joe Alwyn. For a while, they were keeping their relationship under wraps, with Swift wearing disguises while visiting her new boyfriend in London. But now with the warmer weather, it’s time to go public—sort of, anyway. The duo are now spending some time in the States; more specifically, they spent a low-key weekend in Swift’s adopted hometown of Nashville. The two reportedly stayed at Swift’s mom’s house, where they ordered in, had a photoshoot and maybe met a few #squad members.
And now that they’re out in the open, it seems Swift is actually taking a page out of her brief relationship with Kennedy, at least in terms of her real estate moves. Remember when Swift bought a house in Hyannis Port near the Kennedy compound? She subsequently sold the home at a profit, after the break-up, and she later told Vanity Fair, “People say that about me, that I apparently buy houses near every boy I like—that’s a thing that I apparently do…If I like you I will apparently buy up the real estate market just to freak you out so you leave me.”
