Taylor Swift is known for being unlucky in love at times, but always reaching out to her massive fan base, made up predominantly of young women.
One of those young women, struggling with her feelings for a boy she's very interested in, wrote to Swift on Instagram asking for advice, and Taylor responded!
Swift has certainly given a voice to many heartbroken fans via her music, so we suppose it's not too shocking that she'd try to help one out personally.
Still, the breadth of her response to her fan Hannah this week went above and beyond what you'd expect from a friend, let alone a music superstar.
Hannah explained on Instagram that she is romantically interested in a boy who was her “first best friend,” on whom she's developed “the biggest crush.”
Believing he will “never” like her back, Hannah tagged Taylor’s Instagram page in the caption and asked, “Can you give me some advice maybe?”
The 24-year-old singer did just that, in length and heartfelt fashion.
After sweetly complementing her love-struck supporter on the beautiful photo she posted, Taylor shared some emotional thoughts on unrequited love.
"Hannah ... About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized," Swift said.
"When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone."
"Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling."
"No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind."
"You love someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it."
"Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way."
Hannah, to say the least, was over the moon about Taylor’s touching response on the social media site, calling Swift the “big sister I don’t have.”
Maybe she'll have a chance to reciprocate someday with her big sister. Here's a look back at some of the celebrities who have dated Taylor Swift:
