Joe Alwyn has been with Taylor Swift for many years and rarely discusses his relationship with her. Joe said, “It’s not really [because I] want to be guarded and private, it’s more a response to something else.” He continued, “We live in a culture that is so increasingly intrusive… The more you give—and frankly, even if you don’t give it—something will be taken.”

Taylor shared the same sentiment when she opened up about her personal life in an interview in 2019. She said, “I’ve learned that if I do, people think it’s up for discussion, and our relationship isn’t up for discussion. If you and I were having a glass of wine right now, we’d be talking about it—but it’s just that it goes out into the world. That’s where the boundary is, and that’s where my life has become manageable. I really want to keep it feeling manageable.”

Are you private with your relationship? Or do you post about your relationship on social media?
