The Way They Were: See Every Single Photo from Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's Relationship

Hiddleswift will live on in our hearts. And also in these photos.

Once upon a time, Tom Hiddleston was all, "Summer lovin' had me a blast!" And Taylor Swift was all, "Summer lovin' happened so fast!" And then the world was just like, "tell me more, tell me more, did you get very far?" And Hiddleswift responded, "NoNo we did not."

The loved-up pair have reportedly split after just three months of dating and one magnificent world tour, and we're left with no choice but to hold onto the memories. By which we mean hunt down photos from every time Tom and Taylor were seen in public. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was Summer 2016.

Behold, the first time Tom and Taylor were spotted in public, just before the Met Gala. Taylor was still dating Calvin Harris at the time, but can we please talk about the way she's peering at Tom? If the walls at Anna Wintour's house could talk...

A Rocky Start (Ha. Ha. Ha.)

The photo that started it all—when Hiddle and Swift joined forces to become the unstoppable duo that was Hiddleswift. Too bad fall arrived and ruined everything.

Theory: Selena's "Hands to Myself" is secretly about this moment.

Another Day, Another Beach

Ah yes, when Taylor and Tom hit Ipswich and wandered around like a living, breathing Eddie Bauer catalogue (in a good way). Note that Tom's mom was there—because that's how serious their relationship was after one month.

Revamping the Roman Holiday

Make some room, Audrey Hepburn, because Hiddleswift's Roman Holiday was pure goals. Those matching outfits are not messing around.

July Fourth, a Day to Celebrate America and Hilddleswift

Remember when Tom Hiddleston wore an "I Heart T.S." tank top? He probably wants us to forget, but nope, not happening.

<p>Yeah, Tom and Taylor totally knew they were being papped during this photo, but that doesn't mean they weren't <em>genuinely</em> having the most fun fourth of July ever—you can tell from their full-body hug. "He's completely supporting her body weight, and that's very intimate," Blanca says. "That's something you might not see with couples who aren't established, and don't have that level of intimacy or fun. This is very playful."</p>

Taylor accompanied Tom to Australia so he could morph into his evil alter-ego, Loki. At this point, everything started (slowly) going downhill. We blame Thor.

Look how in love they were? LOOKAT. TOM'S. FACE.

This is the second-to-last photo that was taken of Hiddleswift in public. 😥

The End

This is Tom and Taylor's final public appearance on July 27 before Tay cut things off. The good news is we'll always have Rhode Island. And L.A. And Ipswich. And all those random rocks they perched on.
