When it comes to getting back together with an ex, you should never say never, right? Well, unless you're Taylor Swift, of course -- then you belt out those exact words as loud as you can. Her recent romance with One Direction member Harry Styles pretty much fizzled out before it even had a chance to get started, but it looks as though Taylor may not be ready to stay goodbye to her former flame just yet.
If what British newspapers are saying is true, then apparently Taylor took a private jet to London, in what is assumed to be an effort to smooth things over with Harry and potentially send their relationship back in the right direction. (I know, I know, the "direction" joke is so overdone, but it's funny and I just can't resist.)
Yep, apparently Taylor even checked into a hotel that is near Harry's place (guess he's not too keen on having ex-girlfriends as house guests) all in the hopes of winning him back.
Ugh. For real? I mean, there's a decent chance that this is nothing more than a rumor, and Tay-Tay is back in the states where she belongs, not desperately pining away for Harry in a hotel in London.
But if she really did make a trip across the pond to try and patch things up? Yeah, it would be her most pathetic move yet as far as her love life goes. And I know it's kind of mean that people (like me and plenty of others) keep poking fun at her for who she is or is not dating at any given moment, but she has kind of earned her reputation for swapping out boyfriends on a fairly regular basis.

And if she has any intention of ever shaking it, she should seriously consider staying single for a while instead of hopping on a plane and chasing after a guy she barely dated for more than 10 minutes. If it didn't work the first time, there's no way it's going to work out the second time.
She's only 23, for crying out loud, so she has a whole lifetime ahead of her to fall in love, fall out of love, write songs about falling in and out of love, and everything in between.
Instead of trying to get back together with a dude who was probably never right for her in the first place, Taylor should take a step back, move on, and just focus on her career and enjoying her 20s. This is a time in her life she'll never get back, and the last thing she needs is another failed relationship to scar her image even further.
Be honest -- do you think Taylor and Harry should get back together?
