Cooper “politely declined” the offer, knowing Swift to be a bit of a “serial dater” at the time. He also said that Taylor Swift was too young for him, and he was looking to date someone closer to his own age rather than someone 23 years younger.
“Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together. He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends. It was an ambitious move from Taylor, but she’s going to have fixate on someone else as Bradley’s just not that into her.”
