Dealing through Dating Woes with Taylor Swift’s Songs
Everyone loves Taylor Swift. It’s not difficult to figure out why. Aside from the fact that she’s really adorable and sweet, her songs are sassy, simple and they cut straight to the core without any sorry. If you’re dating and losing hope, here’s a list Taylor Swift songs to help you through every dating woe:
When you get cheated on: “I Knew You Were Trouble”
Everyone’s telling you that dating him was a bad idea, and you never understood why. He was a bit of a bad boy and he had some cheating history, but you chose to look beyond that and try to find the adorable man within. Whether he’s as cute as Harry Styles, or as rugged as John Mayer, he got you hooked and he dropped you like yesterday’s news. This song is perfect for you.
When you’re deleting your pictured together: “Last Kiss”
Let’s face it. Even when you’re determined to do that much needed social media cleansing – untagging yourself from your pictures together, burying mushy tweets, deleting sentimental messages and removing him from your contacts, there’s still this slight stab in your heart. When Joe Jonas dumped our sweet Tay, she felt exactly the same thing. Remember that you are one step closer to moving on and you’ll deal with everything better with this song.
When somebody steals your guy: “Better Than Revenge”
No cheater is worth your time. The beat in this song will convince you that girls “who steal other’s people toys in the playground won’t make her [you] many friends”. It’s a feel-good song that will help you release your anger instead of actually plotting your revenge.
When you thought it was love: “All Too Well”
When Taylor broke up with Jake Gyllenhall, she was devastated and this song affirms that devastation after a break up (or after something you thought was a relationship turned out to be not a relationship) is okay. It’s fine to wallow for a while, eat ice cream and all the chocolate bars you can find, watch chick flicks over again. Then, after indulging in your sadness, it’s time to put your make up on and move forward.
When he always has excuses: “You’re Not Sorry”
If you’re twenty-something and looking for something stable, it is essential that you find a guy who keeps his promises and makes you feel special. If your guy keeps on screwing up – skipping well-planned dinner dates for boys night, forgets your birthday, is late all the time and always apologizes every time, you should reconsider your relationship. You deserve better than faux sorries.
When you’re ready to start over: “Begin Again”
Dating can be daunting especially if you keep bumping into the wrong guys. A bad break up can feel like the worst thing in the world and moving on can be difficult, but once you’ve taken that leap of faith and jumped back into the scene again (not start dating automatically but start being open to opportunities again at least), you’ll see that there are so many better options surrounding you. So, don’t be afraid to begin again.
