How Did Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn Meet? The Story Is Way More Low-Key Than You Might Expect
Taylor Swift has mostly been pretty open about her love life. That changed during her Reputation era though, when she made it very clear that the old Taylor had died.
一直以来泰勒·斯威夫特的感情生活都很公开。直到她在Reputation专辑里表示过去的泰勒已经被埋葬了（The old Taylor can't come to the phone right now），事情发生了变化。
So, stop ringing the phone. Swift's been linked to actor Joe Alwyn for a little while now, but the couple are keeping things uncharacteristically hush hush.
Still, I'm really curious to know, how did Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn meet?
While the reports have yet to be officially confirmed, it's suspected that Swift and Alwyn met at a secret Kings of Leon concert in New York on Oct. 12, 2016.
In May of the following year a Swift fan site posted video evidence that Alwyn attended the same event, so it's likely that the lovers first crossed paths here.
The couple managed to hide their budding relationship impressively well, since there don't seem to be any reports or public sightings of them from the time they reportedly met until May, 2017, when that month The Sun broke the exclusive that the two were in fact dating.
As a source reportedly told the paper: “Taylor and Joe are the real deal, this is a very serious relationship." “But after what happened with Tom Hiddleston, they were determined to keep it quiet," they added.
As Bustle wrote in Sept. 2016, Swift's relationship with the Thor actor very swiftly became "a punchline, which isn't just unfair — it's insensitive."
As the insider also told The Sun back in May, Swift went to great lengths to hide her preliminary visits to Alwyn in London from the public eye.
Hush now and try to sleep.
文中这里连用两个 hush 是在用比较调侃的方式表示“不出声”。
