The Internet totally blew up when news of Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris’ split broke on June 1, with heartbroken Swifties going nuts over the break up. But I totally get the devastation — this came out of NOWHERE…and we had SO much hope!
If you’re a fan of Taylor Swift, 26, you just can’t help but become emotionally invested in her relationships, and since things seemed to be going so well between the singer and Calvin Harris, 32, the news of their split came as a total blindside. Us Swifties just can’t help but feel beyond distraught over this ordeal!
How could this be? Taylor was JUST supporting Calvin at Coachella in April, and the lovebirds were JUST photographed hugging in public on May 20…12 days before this breakup news came out! It was a completely unexpected, shocking split, and that’s why it’s SO hard for us Taylor fans to swallow.
Considering the 26-year-old’s relationship history, everyone was pretty skeptical when she first got together with Calvin in March 2015: There was just no way they’d last…right? But when they made it through months of her touring without a hitch, there was finally faith that this could be the REAL deal.
I mean, come on: He gave her a gorgeous necklace for their 1-year anniversary, and she even called the relationship “magical.” Taylor had finally found real love, giving all her fans hope that they, too, would meet their very own white knight one day — so we just can’t help but be heartbroken that it didn’t work out.
It’s no secret that Taylor has been on a years-long journey to find true love, and her fans, like me, who’ve followed her the whole way through, can’t help but really feel for her now that she’s lost it. We’re going to be nursing our broken hearts over this one for quite a while!
