The “Bad Blood” singer didn’t specifically discuss her romance with the EDM producer, but she did reveal the standards she’d come up for her next relationship while she was single in 2014. “That was the way I decided to go on with my life: Not looking for anything, not necessarily being open to anything, but only being open to the idea that, if I found someone who would never try to change me, that would be the only person I could fall in love with,” she explained. “Because, you know, I was in love with my life.”
Clearly, Calvin fit the description — he totally loves Taylor for exactly who she is and would never wants her to change! “If you’re a people pleaser, like most of us are, you try to adapt to what signals that person is giving off,” she continued, expanding her explanation. “It’s not about changing the fact that you’re a people pleaser; it’s about finding someone who is not critical. That can be the most painful thing: Trying to love someone who is critical in their nature.”
While these two lovebirds just began dating in February, things have gotten serious pretty quickly, and there’s even been rumors of a possible engagement in the near future! Calvin has reportedly been looking at rings, and isn’t taking the task lightly. “Taylor loves chunky rings, so he wants to go big,” Life & Style reported. “He’s looking at cushion-cut center stones and is willing to drop at least $500,000!”
And Taylor is totally on-board, too. “Even though they haven’t been together that long, if he did ask her tomorrow, she’d say yes,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s just so happy with him. Taylor doesn’t think it’s a sure thing, she’s not that cocky, but she has a really good feeling that they will end up together.” Swoon!
