According to a source, she is looking for three qualities in a man right now, and Travis checks all of them. An insider told ET, "Taylor wants a guy that's into his career, does his own thing, but is also supportive and understands her, and Travis fits those qualities."
Travis appears to be passing Taylor's tests, given that he attended an Eras Tour stop, has a successful athletic career, and lives in the spotlight like she does.

Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift's shared values
The pair appear to have a lot in common, according to the insider, who spilled, "They have similar values. She likes that he pursued her and it has been easy and exciting for both of them."
The pair went out to celebrate the big win after attending Travis' game in Arrowhead on Sunday. Travis allegedly rented out an entire restaurant for a party.
According to one partygoer, "Travis bought out the restaurant for his family and team. Taylor arrived, wearing a denim dress, and was seen snacking, having some cocktails and dancing alongside Travis. The two were very affectionate with one another but kept things fun and lighthearted."
The source added, "Travis' teammates also showed up to the after-party, as well as his mom and dad, Donna and Ed. The party lasted until 2 a.m."
Taylor Swift dated Matty Healy before Travis Kelce
Taylor allegedly had a relationship with musician Matty Healy before Travis. More notably, she ended her six-year relationship with actor Joe Alwyn earlier this year. They seemed to have a very different kind of connection than the one she is currently pursuing with Travis.
Since Taylor avoided the media during their relationship for personal reasons and after they camped out together during the COVID-19 lockdown, Joe and Taylor remained largely out of the public eye. Taylor's fans are now happy to see their Miss America glowing once more and are celebrating her return to dating.
