Even after EOnline.com learned about their celebrity relationship in May, celebrity couple Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn have continued to keep their relationship on the down low. The pair have been quite secretive about their visits, especially after Swift’s extremely public past relationships. Swift has reportedly been in London with Alwyn, a 26-year-old British film and theater actor, over the past few weeks.

This new celebrity couple is definitely keeping things under wraps. What are some benefits to keep your relationship on the down-low at first?

Cupid’s Advice:

New relationships can be super fun, but sometimes it’s nicer to keep those moments private. Cupid has some advice on why it can be beneficial to stay quiet at first:

1. There’s minimal pressure: When you keep your relationship private for a bit, pressures from your friends and family won’t be as common. Your mom won’t be constantly asking when she can meet your partner, and sometimes those low-key nights in seem a bit more fun than going out with all of their friends!

2. Say goodbye to negativity: By posting about your relationship on social media, everyone will see your new significant other – and let’s face it, not everybody will be happy for you. When your relationship is on the down-low, you don’t have to worry about people’s negative comments bringing you down.

3. Oversharing won’t be a problem: Relationships are usually only meant for the two people involved. If your relationship becomes public after constantly posting about it, oversharing can become a fast issue. Special dates or moments may get ruined after you share it with all 500 of your “closest friends”.
