He's a virgin, she's not.

Can this relationship work?
... it appears that the singer caught him in her web of seduction, which is made of cotton candy and pixie dust....
RELATED: Justin Beiber is now officially old enough to have sex, and his comment on that subject is: "I don’t want to start singing about things like sex, drugs and swearing."

It can work, but probably won't.

Starting a few months ago, I've listened to a fair amount of Ms. Swift's music, and saw her 60 Minutes piece. I think the music she writes is pretty good, not great, and that she is getting better. I can say that if I had teenage daughters, I would want them listening to her music. Sweet songs, positive and not irony laden. You don't get that from young singers these days.

She also need to quit dating famous men.

It seems premature, sorta like all that wishful talk about "liberaltarians."

MadisonMan said...

My daughter likes Taylor Swift's music, my son does not.

That about says it all.

They would make a great couple. But Swift may not like Tebow calling all of the plays and giving away what they have to Philippine Missions.

Triangle Man said...

Which one of them is going to do the laundry? Are their values compatible? Those questions need to be answered...in that order.

The "He's a virgin, she's not." thing is possible.

The romance in a fishbowl, less so.

Taylor Swift is a born self-promoter. Everything she does has one purpose; media exposure. I've never seen anyone more PR-conscious in my life. Amazing for such a young person.

Also, the Justin Bieber/Salena Gomez thing strikes me as an arranged relationship. Something cooked up by the promoters.

Why would that make it not work?

I know married couples where this was the case when they met.

Almost Ali said...

Why would that make it not work?

Sexual orientation: I suspect they're both attracted to the same sex.

There does seem to be a tendency of some women to pass themselves around the office. Really though, Grace Slick is not someone to emulate.

Ann Althouse said...

@Freeman It might work. I'd like seeing them together.

Reasons why it might not work:

1. She has others to compare him too and he's starting out with no experience.

2. He seems to have some ultra-strong values that she doesn't share (at least not at the same intensity).

(Oops, I was referring to Bieber/Gomez)

Almost Ali said...

Meanwhile, I see Taylor/Tebow as the media-hawk circling above road kill. For his sake, I hope he plays dead - lest everything he stands for go right out the window. Followed by years of seeking God's forgiveness on the one-yard line.

Eww. Even treating Tebow and Swift as abstract celebrity entities, it is not my concern who is a virgin and who is not.

/mental wipe/

Oh, please. If this matters to her, their failure as a couple won't be because he's a virgin.

Who in the world advertises that they are or are not a virgin? Have some dignity.

I imagine that it's hard for entertainer/celebrities to date people who are not. She's constantly flying around on tour, living a life and undergoing stresses that are totally foreign to non-famous men. Also, dating non-famous men puts you at risk of meeting guys who are just interested in sleeping with you like you're a trophy. At least with other celebrities it's not some bucket-list triumph

Joe said...

Anything can work, but three factors which may be an issue are:

1) How many sex partners did Taylor Swift have.

2) Were these relationships or one night stands?

3) Just how religious is Tebow?

traditionalguy said...

22 year old virgins who were star QBs in college and play in the NFL must be an endangered species.

We have come a long way baby when it is the females who are wanting to take the males' virginity as a trophy.

dbp said...

I think it could work. Normal couples often break-up over money, unfaithfulness or household chores.

They have enough wealth that money and who changes the baby's diaper (a nanny will do this) will not be issues. If Tebow managed to stay a virgin after being a star football player in HS and College, I suspect he has plenty of will-power.

jimspice said...

Before commenting, I would need to see the results of the Tebow hymen exam.

dbp said...

OTOH Having a lot of money means that you can split-up without fear of instant poverty as from having to form a whole new household with the same base income.

prairie wind said...

Maybe not, looking at how difficult it is for any celebrity/celebrity relationship to last for more than a few magazine covers.

"Reasons why it might not work:

1. She has others to compare him too and he's starting out with no experience.
"

Traditionally we've put value on a woman "saving herself" for her husband, and that's out of fashion, but it is HOT to think that a man saved himself for you. Being a good lover has value, sure, but being an exclusive lover has even more... and the lack of experience is a temporary condition.

I don't see a problem.

"2. He seems to have some ultra-strong values that she doesn't share (at least not at the same intensity)."

This is more serious.
