Taylor Swift and Harry Styles have been romantically linked as of late, with everyone taking turns speculating whether they’re a couple, or just good friends. Today it’s beginning to look like we’ve gotten our answer, as People reports that the two were seen at the Crosby Hotel in New York City Thursday night, where they openly displayed their affection for one another. Taylor Swift, 22, and 18 year-old Harry Styles of “One Direction” fame stepped out for a friend’s birthday party at the hotel bar. A source reveals that the two were packing on the PDAs for all to see, and that they definitely appear to be a couple. Meanwhile, Taylor’s interview in the new issue of Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine is confirming what many have already figured out, that the singer doesn’t know how to make a relationship last. She admits her past relationships have been short-lived and hopes, perhaps with Harry, to have a long lasting relationship in her future.
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles first dated briefly last spring after meeting at the “Kid’s Choice Awards” in March. Rumors they were dating again were reignited in November when he showed up for her “X Factor” rehearsals.
A source at the hotel bar last night said, “Taylor and Harry [were] being very smoochie. They definitely [looked] like a couple”. Swift and Styles were holding hands and he seemed to be quite protective of her. Harry kept his arm around Taylor for the entire party.
The couple was spotted sharing plenty of kisses, as well. They apparently didn’t care who saw them either as the bar was jam packed. Their appearance at the birthday party capped a week of public sightings in NYC.
Sunday the two strolled through Central Park, visiting the zoo there with friends. On Monday, Taylor attended a Madison Square Garden after-show party at the Hudson Hotel for Harry’s band “One Direction”. They were seen returning to her hotel around 4 a.m..
Harry Styles may be getting a heads up on the budding relationship from Taylor Swift’s latest magazine interview. The “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer opened up to Cosmopolitan UK about her past relationship history, and what she hopes for the future.
Taylor admits she’s not been good at making a relationship last so far, and that she’s never really known what it’s like to be in love, according to Entertainmentwise. “I've never had a really long relationship, so I have no idea what that's like. Wish me luck for the future!”, she said.
Taylor claims she has no definitive “type” when it comes to dating, even though ironically her last two boyfriends, Harry and Conor Kennedy, do bear a striking resemblance to one another.
Swift said age isn’t a factor for her, adding, “It's really more about strength of character. When it comes to age I've been all over the map”. She also said things like how tall a guy is, or what he does for a living, don’t factor in to her choices either.
In the past Taylor has been linked with actors Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal, and musicians John Mayer and Joe Jonas, whose ages ranged from their late teens to early 30s.
