There’s no question Taylor Swift’s romance with Tom Hiddleston has raised more than a few eyebrows. After first appearing together on the dance floor at The Met Ball, while Taylor was still with Calvin Harris, the two have been parading through the UK, Italy and Australia for all of the world (and paparazzi) to see. But they haven’t fooled us. Here, we’re calling bullshit on some of the couple’s most questionable moments…so far.
1. That time Hiddleswift posed on rocks in front of a paparazzo’s lens, no less.
We’ve seen prom photos less posed than these. Moreover, the fact that there was paparazzi anywhere near these two seems particularly sketchy. Taylor is notoriously private about shows of P.D.A. Just ask Calvin Harris.
2. That time Tom and Taylor left home sporting matching outfits.
The couple that matches together, stays together? If jetting around multiple continents together wasn’t enough to make they media explode, doing it in matching outfits pretty much did the trick. And look at that smirk on Taylor’s face. She knows damn well what she’s doing.
3. That time Hiddleswift celebrated the 4th of July alongside real couples.
4. That time Taylor and Tom flaunted their love affair in front of Tom’s family.
4. That time Tom sported the cheesiest tank in the history of ever.
5. That time Taylor and Tom roped Selena Gomez into their folie à deux.

If their hijinks weren’t enough, Taylor and Tom awkwardly danced their way through the Nashville stop of Selena Gomez’s “Revival Tour.” Perhaps this contributed to Selena throwing her own 4th of July shindig instead of partaking in Taylor’s.
6. That time everyone became suspicious of Tom Hiddleston’s real motives.

Once the possibility of Tom landing a role in the new James Bond film surfaced, fans couldn’t keep quiet.
7. That time Tom got flustered when asked about his relationship with Taylor.

No explanation necessary. We’re as confused as Tom is.
8. That time a source claimed Taylor and Tom were ready to start a family.
“She has said he would make a great dad. They have talked about what they want in the future and kids are something that they would both like down the line. They have very real and serious conversations about life,” a source tells E! News. Yeah…ok.
9. That time Tom looked more like her bodyguard than her boyfriend.
10. That time Taylor took Tom to meet her parents.
11. The moment you finished this list and any glimmer of hope you had for Hiddleswift’s validity flew out of the window.
At what point did you begin to doubt Taylor and Tom’s “romance?”
