Styles recently spoke to Rolling Stone, where he opened up about his relationship with Swift. And he admitted that he took a lot from their short-lived romance.
"When I see photos from that [our Central Park date] I think: Relationships are hard, at any age," he said. "And adding in that you don't really understand exactly how it works when you're 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn't make it easier. I mean, you're a little bit awkward to begin with. You're on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date."
Even though Styles and Swift only dated for a few months, there is speculation that her songs "Out of the Woods" and "Style" are about the former One Direction singer. Styles said he wasn't sure if he inspired the tracks but added that they are "great songs." And he said he was "lucky" if he played a role in creating them.
"Certain things don't work out," he said of their relationship. "There's a lot of things that can be right, and it's still wrong. In writing songs about stuff like that, I like tipping a hat to the time together. You're celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than 'this didn't work out, and that's bad.'"
He continued, "And if you run into that person, maybe it's awkward, maybe you have to get drunk ... but you shared something. Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it's the best s--t ever."
Since that breakup, Harry Styles has been linked to several women, including Nadine Leopold, Sara Sampaio, and, of course, Kendall Jenner. Styles even told Rolling Stone that one of his recent exes inspired much of his album. While he wouldn't reveal his muse's name, many are assuming it is Jenner.
"She's a huge part of the album," he said of the ex. "Sometimes you want to tip the hat, and sometimes you just want to give them the whole cap ... and hope they know it's just for them."
But the reunion quickly fizzled out. Jenner is now reportedly dating A$AP Rocky.
As for Styles? He says he's been single for a while. But he is still open to finding love in the future.
"I haven't dated in a long time really because I went away to do the movie ['Dunkirk'], then did the album so I haven't in a while," he said. "I have a couple of candles left still, though."
