Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are not engaged yet, but People is the second outlet to get an update from sources close to the two that no one would be surprised if they did get married. People published some rare detail on what Alwyn and Swift’s relationship is like these days from insiders.
The couple’s decision to keep their romance largely to themselves has served them well, a source close to Swift told the outlet. “Keeping it private from the beginning really helped their relationship,” the source said. “They were able to get to know each other in peace.”
Swift and Alwyn are a very good match, the source said: “Their personalities are very compatible, and they’re respectful of each other’s careers.”
A second source described the two as “so sweet together,” noting Alwyn “is such a gentleman and is very attentive.”
What’s their life together like? It involves a lot of plane travel and low-key dates. (A few of those dates—the Los Angeles hikes, the English pub trips, the New York City street strolls, etc.—have been photographed by paparazzi.)
Alwyn and Swift often travel between Alwyn’s place in the UK (he lives in North London) and Swift’s homes in New York City and Los Angeles. “They’ve found a lifestyle that makes their relationship easy and strong,” People‘s second insider said. “They have a very special relationship. Joe adores Taylor.”
Swift, meanwhile, feels blessed to have found Alwyn. “Taylor really got lucky to meet Joe, and she is the first one to say it,” People‘s first source said.
Earlier this month, a source told Us Weekly that Alwyn was close to popping the question to Swift. “Joe wants to marry her and she wants to marry him,” the source said. “He’s just waiting to find the perfect time to propose. He wants to make it unforgettable and extremely special.”
