At least one of Taylor Swif’s exes knows what’s coming next!

By now, everyone knows that when you date Taylor Swift, you run the risk of being put on full blast on a future single and while not every man Taylor dates is thrilled about it, at least one ex is realistic about the way she operates.

In a recent interview, One Direction’s Harry Styles says he anticipates Taylor to write about their relationship. I’m assuming he probably ended up on good terms with her when they broke up in January.

Harry explained: “It would be hypocritical for me to say she couldn’t do it because everybody writes songs based on personal experience. I can’t say I’d have dated someone less famous to avoid it.”

Aww, ain’t he sweet?

Denying that he’s nervous about getting the John Mayer treatment (Swift slammed the musician in the song “Dear John” off her third studio album Speak Now in 2010) the “What Makes You Beautiful” singer jokes, “at least she’s a great songwriter!”

Swift may be his most high-profiled relationship to date, but Styles doesn’t think being in the public eye makes a difference when it comes to dating.

“I think it’s people, you like people for who they are, so I couldn’t say I want to date someone less famous because of the hassle. You like who you like,” he explains.

“I think relationships are hard enough, so I think you have to completely ignore everything from outside,” he adds. “When you’re in the opening stages of a relationship as it is, you’re still under the pressure of getting to know everything about a person. If you have a lot of people from outside telling you what it is and they don’t even know you, telling you what your relationship is, that’s weird. So I think you sort of have to block it out and just have the relationship rather than think – we’re having this relationship play out on magazine covers.”

This guy sounds rather astute. What was so wrong with him, Taylor? Wait, who am I kidding? He wasn’t going to give you the kind of single you needed. Carry on.
