If she ever steps away from her music career, Taylor Swift definitely has a future as an advice columnist.
A fan named Hannah reached out to Taylor on Instagram asking the superstar for advice on how to deal with her unrequited feelings for a guy she’s known for years.
Hannah, whose name on Instagram is SherbetSwift, describes her love interest as “a guy who’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 was my first best friend.” It turns out this guy has a girlfriend, whom Hannah describes as “pretty” and “nice” with an “amazing figure.”
Taylor wrote a lengthy reply to Hannah, telling her that true love isn’t just “the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized.” She continues, “I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’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.”
Taylor goes on to tell Hannah she’ll someday find someone who loves her in that same, selfless way.
