Taylor Swift is getting to know surfer John John Florence after contacting him via text
Taylor Swift is eager to get to know professional Hawaiian surfer John John Florence better.
The ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer – who split from her last boyfriend Harry Styles in January after two months together – has reportedly stuck up a friendship with the 20-year-old blonde heartthrob and has been pursuing him via text.
A source close to the 23-year-old star told Life & Style magazine: “He and Taylor have been text-messaging.”
John John was asked about his relationship with Taylor during a televised surfing event in Australia recently, and reportedly said: “Uh, I’m not supposed to talk about that.”
An insider claimed that Taylor – who has previously dated a string of Hollywood stars including Taylor Lautner, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal – is extremely eager to keep the details of their new friendship quiet as they have yet to go on a date.
The source said: “Apparently, she contacted him. I don’t think they have hung out yet. They’ve just been chatting.
“John John doesn’t want to ruin things, so he’s being careful not to say too much.”
The Nashville-born star recently said she no longer has time for guys who are scared of commitment.
She said: “There’s really no sound quite as loud as a phone not ringing, a letter unanswered. I don’t quite understand it, because I either want to be with you or I don’t … I really don’t feel like pursuing something that isn’t real or isn’t going somewhere, so if it’s established that someone’s commitment-phobic, I’m sorry – go be commitment-phobic with someone else. Because I’m not trying to scare you, I’m not pointing a gun at you; I’m offering to be with you.”
