Taylor Swift Gives Fan Advice: Unrequited Love is Just as 'Crushing' & 'Thrilling' as True Love
Taylor Swift graciously stops to take a photo with a fan while heading to a photo shoot on Thursday morning (July 24) in New York City.
The 24-year-old singer recently took to Instagram to give advice to a fan who asked about a guy she likes, who doesn’t feel the same way.
“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,” Taylor wrote (via HuffPo). “When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works.”
She continued, “I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s 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 you’ll 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 you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.”
