Sorry to all you Haylor fans out there, but I am about to rock your world hardcore when I drop some serious knowledge on it — Harry Styles was apparently not Taylor Swift‘s first choice. In fact, if you can believe this source, he wasn’t even her first choice on One Direction. Burn.
According to Life & Style, Taylor originally set her earnest little sights on Harry’s 1D bandmate Zayn Malik.
“Taylor had her eye on Zayn Malik, [but] when Zayn found out she was interested, he turned her down.”
NO. No no no no, how dare you, Zayn? People don’t just go turning down Taylor Swift, especially when it means that the world misses out on a couple nickname like ‘Tayn’. How could you have done that to us? Although I guess on the flip side, if Taylor hadn’t dated Harry, we wouldn’t have the song ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’, so it all evens out. ALMOST.
My favorite part though is that she couldn’t even be bothered to try another boy band, though. She was like, “Ugh, but I walked all the way here from Rhode Island, aren’t there any other single members of your band? Maybe that flopsy haired one? What’s his deal? He looks eligible enough to be sloppy seconds in my new fakelationship.” And having identified her new target, Taylor wasted no time in ensnaring him:
“That’s when she swooped in on Harry.”
You hear that? SWOOPED. Out of the sky. Like a great sparkly bird. She identified her prey from the air and winged her way down to earth — making a few stops in antique stores along the way, of course — before clutching Harry in her talons and whisking him back to the states for a whirlwind two months of kisses, cuddles, and I love yous, culminating in a not-at-all staged kiss in Times Square on New Years Eve.
It was a beautiful love story, one for the ages, but I can’t help thinking of all the missed moments that the world will never get to share with Tayn. Tayn gazing into each others’ eyes over Skype. Tayn getting into giggly arguments about who has the better bone structure. Tayn skipping hand in hand through a field of daisies and getting engaged right there on the spot. RIP Tayn. I shed a tear for what might have been.
