There's a "Lover" lyric that goes, "I've loved you three summers now, honey, but I want 'em all" — and that seems to line up with Taylor and Joe's dating history. The pair reportedly first met at the Met Gala in May 2018, but back then, Taylor was still dating Calvin Harris. 

Taylor and Calvin officially split in June 2016. Shortly after that, the singer began dating Tom Hiddleston. According to E! News, Taylor and Tom were over and done with by September 2016.
