Taylor Swift is known for her amazing songs, her great voice, and her awesome girl squad. But she may be even more famous for her ever-growing list of song-inspiring exes. Seriously, Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriends could be fuel for many albums to come. We'll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime, we're leaving it up to you to rank all of Taylor Swift's exes. 

It seems our T. Swift is just drawn to heartbreak. And while we love the songs she wrote about her exes, we still want the best for her! We knew that John Mayer was never going to be a good fit for her - hello, he's like "Mr. Heartache." We had hope for Joe Jonas, but shame on him for that 27-second phone call breakup. Then we thought maybe Harry Styles would be a good match. He wasn't, but we're pretty grateful for the songs "Out of the Woods" and "Style" that the One Direction singer inspired.

While Taylor has been romantically linked to a bunch of heartthrobs, including Zac Efron, this list is focused on the guys she actually dated - not just guys she was rumored to be dating. Although, it is pretty hard to keep it all straight! 

It's hard to pick which one of Taylor's exes is the best and which one is the worst, which is why we're tossing this list of Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriends to you. Upvote the Taylor Swift exes that you think she should have stayed with!
