If there's one other thing Taylor Swift is known for besides those incredible songs, it's her love life. 

And though the 10-time Grammy winner has experienced her fair share of heartbreak over the years, Swift's high-profile relationships have actually spawned some of her most popular hits, including "Forever and Always" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." 

There's no doubt that the blond beauty has mastered the art of the breakup song, and it's about time we looked back at Taylor's greatest relationships. We're counting down the 26-year-old's most memorable leading men, starting with what might be 2009's greatest celeb love story: Taylor Squared. 

Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner


Swift and Twilight series star Taylor Lautner caught each other's eyes on the set of Valentine's Day, spurring a relatively short-lived relationship between the two celebs. Other than their namesakes, the couple evidently shared little in common and the female Taylor was on to the next guy. 

Lucky for T. Swift diehards, this fizzled romance served as the inspiration for 2010's "Back To December," which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

No retrospective on Swift's ghosts of boyfriends past would be complete without John Mayer. While the hunky crooner and Tay made some pretty great music together ("Half of My Heart" still gives us the feels), their romance just couldn't take the heat. 

Perhaps it was the 13-year age difference that contributed to their ultimate split. On her aptly titled song "Dear John," Swift acknowledged the gap, singing, "Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?" Yikes.

Oh, Jake Gyllenhaal. This idyllic coffee date will probably go down in celebrity couple infamy as basically the cutest thing ever. 

Just last year, the Southpaw actor fielded questions about Swift, admitting he was "super attracted" and still thinks Taylor is a "beautiful girl." No bad blood between these exes. 

But which one of Taylor's former or current flames takes the top spot? (Here's a hint: It's between Harry Styles and Calvin Harris). Check out the video above to find out!
