‘I NEED ANSWERS!’
He’s met her parents in Nashville – and now Taylor’s said to have realised that Joe’s The One…
What a week for Joe Alwyn, Taylor Swift’s beau. Not only has he had to deal with the paparazzi following his every move after the pair jetted into Taylor’s hometown of Nashville to meet the folks, but it’s now been revealed that the 26-year-old’s scored a new role in a huge upcoming film franchise. Talk about doing everything at once.
And Taylor, 27, is more than happy. As we reported last week, they’ve taken this romance slowly, given her previous heartbreak. But Tay being Tay, the meeting with her parents has brought her to a decision: she wants to come to the UK for a fresh start with Joe.
‘Taylor doesn’t want marriage or anything like that,’ a source reveals. ‘She’s been stung by thinking too far ahead before, but she’s asked Joe to move in with her once she finds a place in London.’
But despite ‘loving’ Tay’s parents, Joe’s seemingly hesitant to commit to such a drastic step. ‘They’re very much in love but Joe is concerned that Taylor’s plan to up sticks and start a new life in London to be closer to him is going to put them under a lot of pressure,’ says our insider.
The pop star, however, is convinced that this is what will cement them, privately telling friends that she believes her relationship with Calvin Harris failed because they hadn’t taken that step earlier – and she’s not enjoying Joe’s lack of enthusiasm about this next stage together.
‘She feels that at her age she needs a guy who’s mature enough not to be scared of making a proper commitment,’ explains our source.
But we’re told Joe simply thinks they’re young and having fun. ‘He just wants to enjoy the honeymoon period without worrying about the future or making any big plans,’ a friend tells us. ‘They spent a lot of time talking about her fears around

this when they were in Nashville and Joe’s view was very much that he sees a real long-lasting relationship – but doesn’t want to jump the gun and put them under unnecessary stress.’
We think that sounds like sensible advice – after all, it’s only a year since Hiddleswift, ‘Vestgate’ and all those 4 July party events. But the star’s said to have made up her mind.
‘Taylor’s planning to visit Joe in London in a few weeks and she wants some answers about how he sees their future by then,’ our insider reveals. Better get thinking, Joe.
