Many have tried, and all of them have failed. She’s like the sun—fly too close, and you’re guaranteed to burn. Of course, we’re talking about dating Taylor Swift.
Her roster of ex-boyfriends is the pinnacle of entertainment-world cool—Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, Zac Efron, Jake Gyllenhaal—and yet none of them managed to hold onto her. And now, she’s reportedly dating British actor Joe Alwyn (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk). Of course, because it’s Taylor Swift we’re talking about, everyone is already predicting the end. How long will this last? Will she write a song about this one? Or will this guy finally be the one to tame the wild and restless unicorn known as Tay-Tay?
We hear you, haters. And we’ve seen your headlines. “Why Taylor Swift S*cks at Relationships.” “9 Reasons You Wouldn’t Want to Date Taylor Swift.” She herself has even posed the question: “Why would anyone want to date me?”
Oh, Taylor. (Men find self-deprecation a huge turn-on.)
But we can answer her as semi-seriously as we can. In fact, here are 15 reasons why every guy on planet earth finds her to be the smart, sexy, savvy, kind, ruthless, funny, perfectly prickly, and utterly hot girl of his dreams.
She Clearly Likes to Be Challenged
Some guys like women who are pushovers. Some guys like quiet girls with small opinions. Well, we’re not either of those guys. Swift graduated high school a full year before her classmates and didn’t feel the need to fall into the crowd. She clearly lives her life on her own terms, and you will either bend to her will or land yourself on a train to Dumpville. At the end of the day, being a strong and utterly driven go-getter is sexy. But my-way-or-the-highway? Even sexier.
She Can Laugh at Herself
Granted, not all the time. No doubt she has self-serious side. But she’s clearly got a self-deprecating sense of humor, as well, and not every girl can say that. Don’t forget: Back when everyone was gushing over “Hotline Bling,” Taylor ribbed her fellow pop star: “You used to call me on my elf phone.” At the end of the day, nothing is more attractive than a sense of humor.
She’s Straight-up Ruthless
Just ask the folks at Apple. Hey, men are attracted to powerful partners, too.
She’s Crazy (in a Good Way)
From Zelda Fitzgerald to Angelina Jolie, men have always lusted after crazy women. It’s a fact. Consider Jolie: Years ago, she explained some of her scars to a reporter. “You’re young, you’re crazy, you’re in bed and you’ve got knives,” she said. Did guys avoid her? Of course not. She married Brad Pitt. As such, we’d like to nominate Swift’s “Blank Space” video into the Crazy Girl Hall of Fame, and we love her all the more for it.
She’ll Call You Out on Your BS
She’s headstrong and confident.
“If a woman dates three or four people in an eight-year period, she is a serial dater and it gives some 12-year-old the idea to call her a ‘slut’ on the internet? It’s not the same for boys. It just isn’t, and that’s a fact,” she told Cosmopolitan.
When Swift attends the Victoria’s Secret fashions shows, she usually looks better than the women on the runway—or the ones at the beach. Also, she can sing.
She Confidently Flaunts Her Best Assets
Whether she’s working out more or simply eating right, her figure is looking undeniably amazing.
She Likes to Party
Taylor’s 11,000 square-foot, $17 million secret beachfront getaway is possibly the coolest thing about Rhode Island, and it’s where she throws down every July 4 for a star-studded bash. Also, she’s got cool friends: Lena Dunham. Cara Delevingne. Karlie Kloss. Lorde. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. We didn’t need science to tell us this, but researchers at Indiana University found that popular individuals have a much higher sex appeal.
She’s Got a Big Heart
Among many, many other philanthropic efforts, she donated $100,000 to the V Foundation and $50,000 to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia—and pledged $4 million to build an education center in Nashville.
Swift is worth a reported $250 million.

And nothing in the world will make any woman more desirable.
