Her love interest didn’t show up, and that’s when she knew it was over. She turned 21 in December 2010, which lines up with the end of her relationship with the “Zodiac” actor.

Jake Gyllenhaal prefers to keep the past in the past.

Swift was only 22 years old when she released the album. Her romance affected her deeply and it was very hard to say goodbye to Jake. The singer decided to put her emotions in to her music.

She confessed, “When you are missing someone, time seems to move slower and when I'm falling in love with someone, time seems to be moving faster. So I think, because time seems to move so slow when I'm sad, that's why I spend so much time writing songs about it. It seems like I have more hours in the day.”
