Watch this short video clip for an answer for who is the mystery man who was an inspiration for “Mine”.
"Mine", a single by Taylor Swift, released on August 4, 2010, is the lead single from her third studio album, Speak Now, and the eleventh single release of her career. The song was released two weeks ahead of the planned August 16 release due to its online leak.
In a live chat on July 20, 2010, Swift said, "It's a song that is about ... my tendency to run from love." Every relationship she has been in ‘has ended in goodbye, has ended in breakups,’ and that ‘Mine" is "sort of about finding the exception to that."
