Since her debut album was released in 2007, right up until her most recent Eras Tour, she has sung about finding love, getting her heart broken, starting fresh, and every step along the way.
The 34-year-old has also enjoyed relationships with a string of high-profile lovers, with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce at the top of her list after splitting from British actor Joe Alwyn earlier this year.
Fans have long theorized that certain albums are directly inspired by certain ex-beaus, including John Mayer (Speak Now), Jake Gyllenhaal (Red), and Harry Styles (1989).
However, psychologists and behavior experts have told DailyMail.com that Taylor’s extensive discography may point toward an anxious attachment style and ‘toxic and self-destructive’ behavior.
Although none of the experts here have worked with the popstar directly, all have studied the romantic-themed lyrics in her songs.
The topic of attachment styles has generated much attention on social media over the past few years – as more millennial and Gen Z users engage in psychological therapy.
So-called attachment theory is a nearly century-old idea from psychologists John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth that examines how infanthood and early childhood relationships impact relationships throughout your life – particularly romantic ones.
There are thought to be ‘styles’ of attachment: secure, anxious, avoidant, and disorganized.
For example, if your parents were attentive and reliable, you are more likely to develop a secure attachment style.
This means you don’t live in fear of being abandoned by a partner, or push people away to avoid getting hurt.
Dr Melissa A Fabello, a relationship coach in California, told DailyMail.com: ‘All insecure attachment styles start similarly: with trauma in childhood. Among other factors, how caregivers respond – or attune – to children has an impact on how we organize ourselves psychologically.’
