Taylor SwiftÂ came to a lovelornÂ fanâ€™s rescue this week, answeringÂ a plea for advice on Instagram.
The young fan,Â Hannah, sharedÂ that she has â€œthe biggest crush in the whole wide world onâ€ aÂ guy who she says â€œwill never like me back.â€
She added, â€œ@taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe. I love you.â€
Sure enough, Swift replied.
Here is what Hannah wrote, in full (see her original post below):
"Thereâ€™s a guy Taylor, a guy whoâ€™s sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who was my first best friend. A guy who I met when I was seven and he was nine. A guy who this one time, when we were younger, said that I was â€˜likeâ€™ his girlfriend because I was a girl and his friend. I wish. A guy who I have the biggest crush in the whole wide world on, and heâ€™ll never like me back. (And he has a girlfriend who he adores and sheâ€™s pretty and has an amazing figure and is actually nice to me). A guy who will never like me back.Â @taylorswiftÂ can you give me some advice maybe. I love you. Hannah."
Hereâ€™s Swiftâ€™s response:
"Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself) Okay. About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is â€˜how long were you two together?â€™ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. Itâ€™s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think youâ€™ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday youâ€™ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way."
A stunned Hannah wrote to Swift, â€œYou have no idea how much this means to me, thank you. You understand and that means so much. I feel like youâ€™re the big sister I donâ€™t have. Thank you, I really did need to hear that from you.â€
