Calvin’s really in awe of Taylor – she’s not at all like he imagined
their own bedroom and that’s that. Until Taylor’s married, she sleeps in her room, alone – end of story.
‘He also insists on man-to-man time with all her boyfriends and that’s when he grills them,’ adds the source. ‘Her dad told John [Mayer] he was too old and Jake [Gyllenhaal] he was going to break her heart – the same with Harry [Styles].’
But Calvin knew how to charm both of Taylor’s parents. ‘He brought flowers for her mum, Andrea, a bottle of Scotch for her dad, and was polite and quietly funny, but also not too showbiz,’ our insider reveals.‘he was all about friendly eye-to-eye contact, which Scott appreciated.’
Picking her up in a private jet, impressing the parents – could Calvin be any more perfect? Apparently not. While staying at Taylor’s parents’ Nashville home for two nights, he even offered to cook for the loved-up songstress and the pair were spotted shopping at Whole Foods Market that night. The next evening, he accompanied her to country singer Kenny Chesney’s concert, where he spent most of the show with his arm around her. But even so, friends say Taylor is trying to still hold back.
‘He’s winning major points with her, but she’s still worried about getting hurt. Even though she’s trying to take it one step at a time, she just can’t help herself,’ says a pal. ‘She’s trying not to overthink it or get too far ahead of herself, but old habits die hard. She always moves too fast with guys and makes them her whole world before they really deserve it.’
And it’s not like Taylor doesn’t know about her reputation, singing: ‘Got a long list of ex-lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane’ in her recent song, Blank Space, but insiders say she’s desperate to change that.
‘Calvin’s so laid-back and is letting her call all the shots, but she can’t help push things along a little,’ admits an insider. ‘She’s only got a small window of opportunity before she starts her world tour next month, so she’s taking full advantage of that.
‘Of course, she’s trying not to fall too hard for him, but Calvin’s working his quietly spoken magic on her and she’s smitten with him, big time.’
