"Girl At Home" Song Meaning

Today's Taylor Swift song is the meaning of "Girl At Home" from her deluxe Target Red album.

I so relate to Taylor in this song.  I have known plenty of guys in my lifetime that were dating someone else and flirting incessantly with other girls or weren't dating anyone specifically, but flirted with every girl they knew.


Taylor tells Yahoo music, "And there's a song called 'Girl at Home,' which was about a guy who had a girlfriend, and I just felt like it was disgusting that he was flirting with other girls."

Who is the guy that was flirting with other girls?

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, Central Park 2012
I thought about it long and hard, and decided on Harry Styles!  They met at the 2012 Nickelodeon's 25th Annual Kids' Choice Awards introduced to each other by Justin Bieber and while he was nice, he flirted with tonz of girls.  He even kissed Emma Ostilly after he met Taylor.

Taylor shows that she has interest in him, "it would be a fine preposition" but she would only go along with it "If I was a stupid girl/And yeah I might go with it/If I hadn't once been just like her." He's "the kind of man who makes me sad/While she waits up/You chase down the newest thing/And take for granted what you have."  She has had this happen a few times to her, one of the biggest ones being Joe Jonas, which she sings about in "Better Than Revenge".

I am proud of Taylor for not going along with this flirtatious guy.  I know from experience that they can be very charming to you and to every other girl they meet, and it only ends in heartbreak.

  5. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but he wasn't going out with Emily. But I don't disagree with the choice. I'm just saying. Sorry if that came off rude.

    1. Thanks for the tip, sometimes she goes by Emma too. I don't know if they were dating dating, I'll have to change that, but they certainly kissed after he met Taylor. http://www.heavy.com/news/2012/10/one-direction-harry-styles-dumped-taylor-swift-emily-ostilly-kiss-heartbreak/

  6. I like Harry Styles but the fact that he is flirting with other girls is rude, irritating, no respect!

    Like how are you gonna make a relationship work with that attitude ???
    But i don't hate them or Harry...just saying :)

  7. LOL this article is written based purely on how the media portrays Harry, he is in no way a "flirtatious player guy", he hasn't had a relationship in so long and his stunt with Taylor was for pure publicity.

  8. Wasn't this song release before she dated him? I'm not positive, but you're probably right! I love your blogs so much! Please keep posting!

    1. They dated twice actually. Once in 2012 at the beginning of the year and then again at the end of the year.

  10. I don't think it's not about Harry but maybe Justin Bieber because Taylor does write about the things she witnesses and how she feels about it and we all know Justin was completely disrespectful towards Selena and that's one of Taylor's best friends. And that photo of them is photoshopped. It was a time Taylor was with Selena and someone photoshopped Harry on Selena's body.

  11. I'm pretty sure it's not about him. I have no idea who it is about but I don't think it was him because first of all, I don't know that he had a girlfriend when he first met her and second, if she knew he was a cheater and thought it was disgusting that he'd flirt with someone when he had a girlfriend then why would she date him after that? And also, I think the song is older than that and that picture is totally photoshopped! I can tell from looking at it that it's a picture from 2010 (her hair is curly and she's wearing a shirt she wore in a 2010 photoshoot) and it looks like a recent picture of him. I could tell right away it was fake but thanks to the person who commented above me for pointing out that it was actually Selena! lol

    1. Thanks for the info about it being photoshopped. Will find another picture ASAP. You've given me many things to think about Alyssa. I hadn't thought about pricing together who she wrote them with and timing. Great clue.

  12. I really think this song is about someone she never dated because I'm pretty sure the guy reminded her of John Mayer...I'm not positive, but I'm betting John "turned off his phone" while talking to another girl about having some adult fun while Taylor sat waiting on him...(but it could very well have been a different boyfriend, it's just it has him written all over it). I don't think Taylor liked that feeling and wouldn't be the third party doing it to someone else. I think this is one of those things where (if it's not Bieber), we will never know WHO it's about, and we're not supposed to. She was merely criticizing the habit, not the person. She said she WANTED the guy to call his girlfriend and stop flirting with other girls in the song. In other words "Stop taking something special for granted". I really don't think it's Styles at all.

    1. I agree, I just don't see her later dating someone she already knew to be a cheater.

  13. I feel like this song would have been about a married man trying to flirt with her. I can't even remember Harry ever having a girlfriend really before Taylor! I absolutely love your blogs!
