One of Taylor Swift's fans got some one-on-one advice from the international star on Instagram regarding a boy who told Swift, the boy "will never like me back."
E! Online reports on the story, "@taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe. I love you," a young love-struck girl named Hannah wrote in regards to a guy who she said "will never like me back." Cue T.Swift's sage wisdom!
"'Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself)," Swift commented. "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 ‘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. 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," she added. "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."
Wow! The young fan even replied to Swift's advice, writing, "You have no idea how much this means to me, thank you. You understand and that means so much. I feel like you're the big sister I don't have. Thank you, I really did need to hear that from you."' (E! Online)
