Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal have reportedly reconciled, and are dating again. The two first dated in October 2010, but split in January 2011.

According to a report in OK! magazine, the Bad Blood hitmaker began reaching out to Gyllenhaal since he is in New York City starring in the Broadway show, Sunday in the Park With George. A source said: "Taylor was so young when they dated, she wasn't ready for a serious relationship, but now she's showing Jake how much she's matured. She's excited to see where things go."

In 2016, during an interview with Howard Stern, Gyllenhaal talked about his desire to settle down. He said: "Oh, I hope to get married. I think it's hard for everybody, man. But I also think at some point, you just decide to grow up, you know?"

Meanwhile, Swift has a history of dating high-profile celebrities including Scottish singer/DJ Calvin Harris, One Direction star Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer and Conor Kennedy. In December 2015, during an interview with NME magazine, the Red hitmaker said she feels the world is too interested in her personal life.

She told the publication: "I'm in the news every single day for multiple different reasons. And it can feel, at times, if you let your anxiety get the better of you, like everybody's waiting for you to really mess up – and then you'll be done."

"A lot of the time I need to call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and all the things that matter. If you do something that defines your character to be not what the public thought you were, that's the biggest risk," Swift added.
