Glossary of a BLOW OFF: Tay-Tay

function: Adjective
Origin: somewhere around the time Taylor Swift started dating Taylor Lautner.

Definition: A Tay-Tay is a girl who's always in a relationship and thinks all her relationships are intense-can’t-live-without-each-other-forever-love, but generally they only end up lasting one to three months. She’s known to do things like buy a house near a boyfriend or ditch her family to spend Thanksgiving with his, even though they’ve only been dating two weeks.

Or as my bestie describes Taylor Swift: “She’s loco.”

Beware of being friends with a Tay-Tay. The worst thing about them is that their relationships completely consume them and thus, monopolize every conversation you have with them. You’re forced to smile politely and get all wide-eyed about something their new boyfriend said to them, or bought for them, or promised them. Even though you know that in six weeks time, they will be back on your couch in tears, because that relationship did not pan out after all.

I mean Taylor Swift is barely twenty-three and she’s already been linked to Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Corey Montieth, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Harry Styles from One Direction.  I know I'm forgetting someone.  She's young and rich and famous.  By all means, she should slut it up.  But stop acting like dude is the love of your life.  I don't know, try waiting six months before you meet his parents or go on vacation with him.  Seriously.  Why do Celebrities date like they're contestants on The Bachelor?

I think this video and the first two minutes says it all.  It's such a bad and obvious rip off of this.

"I don't know if you know who you are, until you lose who you are"
-Taylor Swift
(okay, the 16 year old girl in me kind of loves that and the stupid song.)


  1. I love love love Taylor Swift's music and her devotion to her fans...

    ... but guuuuuurl... she's not setting a good example about how to be young and "in love"...

  2. Is it sad my best friend is just like her? Minus the rich + famous part. I just want to call a time out, sit her down, do a little trip down memory lane via a crystal ball or magic mirror..let her see herself, let the lightbulb go on, and try a new approach! I would also characterize this... sadly.. as.. co-dependency.

    P.S. I also like Taylor's music. Pretty catchy! ;)

    1. Sometimes I think the best thing we can do for friends that are like this is not indulge them and not get fake excited for them until the relationship proves to be different than the rest. And even sometimes, we have let them deal with the break up on their own and not coddle them too much. Tough love!
