Dreamy Jonas Brother, Joe Jonas dated Swift back in 2008 and the pair had a tumultuous breakup that inspired this very cringe-worthy YouTube video, and Swift's most problematic and slut-shaming song "Better Than Revenge" - a song about Jonas' ex-girlfriend Camilla Belle. Jonas shared his thoughts about their breakout on his Myspace page. How very early 2000s:  

"I never cheated on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause you to think less of me," […] For those who have expressed concern over the '27 second' phone call, I called to discuss feelings with the other person. Those feelings were obviously not well received. I did not end the conversation. Someone else did. Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk."

Taylor Squared dated back in 2009. Lautner was asked about his time spent with Swift during a Facebook Q&A with his Scream Queens co-stars, Lea Michelle and Jon Stamos. Michelle managed to get some words out of Lautner regarding the song she wrote about him, "Back to December": 

"Michele: You dated Taylor Swift. I remember that. 

Lautner: That's hilarious. 

Michele: Should we talk about it? 

Lautner: No! I don't know why you guys want to talk about it. 

Michele: Didn't she write a song about you? 

Lautner: That's what she does. She writes songs." 

Stamos also got a little more information on how it was to date Swift: 

"Stamos: What was that [dating Swift] like? 

Lautner: It was a good time. It was a fun few months there..."

Former One Direction-er, Harry Styles, dated Swift back in November 2012 until January 2013, and their time together inspired Swift's songs "Out of the Woods" and "Style" as well as the One Direction song "Perfect" which contained the lyrics "if you're looking for someone to write your break up song about" so there you go! Styles talked about his relationship with Swift during a Google Hangout with his band mates, and touched upon her writing songs about him: 

"We write from personal experience, and I think everyone does, so it would be hypocritical of us to be like, 'Oh you can't write about us,' And she's really good, so they're good songs,, […] I'm really lucky in that sense."

John Mayer dated Swift from December 2009 until February 2010, inspiring her break up anthem "Dear John". Turns out, Mayer had a lot of feelings about being the subject of a fairly inflammatory song. Mayer told Rolling Stone about the experience:  

"It made me feel terrible [...] Because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do." 

"I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call. I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I'd already been dressed down. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?"
