Taylor SwiftÂ came to a lovelornÂ fanâs rescue this week, answeringÂ a plea for advice on Instagram.
The young fan,Â Hannah, sharedÂ that she has âthe biggest crush in the whole wide world onâ aÂ guy who she says âwill never like me back.â
She added, â@taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe. I love you.â
Sure enough, Swift replied.
Here is what Hannah wrote, in full (see her original post below):
"Thereâs a guy Taylor, a guy whoâs sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who was my first best friend. A guy who I met when I was seven and he was nine. A guy who this one time, when we were younger, said that I was âlikeâ his girlfriend because I was a girl and his friend. I wish. A guy who I have the biggest crush in the whole wide world on, and heâll never like me back. (And he has a girlfriend who he adores and sheâs pretty and has an amazing figure and is actually nice to me). A guy who will never like me back.Â @taylorswiftÂ can you give me some advice maybe. I love you. Hannah."
Hereâs Swiftâs response:
"Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself) Okay. About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is âhow long were you two together?â As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I donât think thatâs how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. Itâs just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think youâll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday youâll find someone who loves you in that exact same way."
A stunned Hannah wrote to Swift, âYou have no idea how much this means to me, thank you. You understand and that means so much. I feel like youâre the big sister I donât have. Thank you, I really did need to hear that from you.â
What do you think of Swiftâs advice to Hannah?
