Taylor Swift’s rumoured new boyfriend, One Direction’s Harry Styles, has a thing for older women. The pop star is only 18 years old, the same age as Taylor’s last famous boyfriend, Conor Kennedy. We thought her next boyfriend would at least be closer to her age, given that Taylor is 22 and women usually mature faster than men, but we have a feeling we were totally off. Fortunately for Taylor, 18 year old Harry prefers to date up… and by “date up” we mean with regards to age. In fact, Taylor Swift might actually be a little young for Harry!
The One Direction star isn’t quite as big in the United States as he is in his native UK, and maybe that’s a good thing for the time being! Otherwise, more gossip magazines would likely be talking about the fact that Harry Styles has a thing for much older women, and we’re not just talking two or three years older… We’re not even talking five years older! Harry actually dated Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack who’s 33, 15 years older than Harry! To top it off, he also had very public fling in the UK with 32-year-old DJ Lucy Horobin, who also happened to be married at the time.
When asked by You magazine if he actually had a cut off point that would make a woman too old to date, Harry replied: “Any woman older than my mum Anne – who is 43.”
Good to know, Taylor, good to know! Fours years is practically weeks in Harry Styles’ world!
