This song represents how a girl can date someone older & how the older guy begins to take advantage of her. He makes her fall in love with him then after he has her where he wants to. He begins to mess with her & break her heart like he did to the long list of girls he's already done that to. P. S this song is written about john mayer & how he did all of that to taylor swift.

Why can't you guys just admit shes agood song writer and a singer. If I my self had the talent of writing such sweet song. Even fabricating failure love stories and relation ships as she's doing. That wud be amazing to me. And to any girl I guess. Good for her that she went after her dreams since she was even a kid. She worked hard to be such a sweet singer. I sing a lil and right some lil poems. But I dun hav the guts to go after things as she had done thro all her life. Gl for every onee.
* And it wud be so sweeet if shes back to taylor lautner; 3. That guy is edable lol luckyy swift and gomez =l *

Check and mate! Now "poor john" is feeling "hurt" by the truth of the lyrics. Perhaps he has matured and gained the ability to manage his own behavior by now, but there's no denying that for some rather long span of time he behaved like a bee determined to pollinate every flower in the garden in the shortest possible time span. John, never play with the unseasoned, sensitive heart of a woman who has a better, more intelligent mind than you do. Especially if she is also a better songwriter, musician and performer than you are, you ain't that cool dude.

Hmm dear john. Story of everyone woman's life. Girl falls selfish jerk. Guy proves himself a selfish jerk. Girl likes guy more. Guy doesn't care but in this case taylor swift got to make that selfish jerk care by making it a hit. You go girl! And to the girl who said she wanted to kil herself over a guy. Hunny idk about you but he probably wasn't the first and he won't be the last. No need to commit suicide just breath and take it all in. One day we will all get it right.

I believe that there are some women who fall for men instantly because they want to be in love so bad or simply beacause it is in their nature to love. This is not neccessarily a problem but it can and will result it alot of heartache. It doesn't make either one weak
or responsible it just means that in this day and age it may take longer to find the "one" whether this song is directly about john mayer or not doesn't matter. It is from her perspective of her feelings, how she percieved things. And this is not to say that mr. Mayer has a medal of honor for his love life either. We know his track record. It is all just so coincedental that he chooses now to comment as his new album has just been released. Hmmm.
