The 22-year-old singer, who is dating One Direction singer Harry Styles and has previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Joe Jonas, has had bad relationship experiences, but insists they haven’t put her off wanting a fairytale end to a relationship.
In an interview with the new issue of LOOK magazine, Taylor said “I think about love all the time. I have done since I was able to comprehend what love was, I daydream about it all the time. There was a relationship that was an extreme let-down, one that was a betrayal, one where I got cheated on, one where I had my self confidence chipped away piece by piece … But even after your heart explodes into a million pieces and you’re thinking, ‘Why did this have to happen?’ You make eye contact with someone across the room and it clicks – and bang, you’re in love again.” Really? Just a look across a room? I think I’m starting to see where she’s going wrong.
Taylor insists that she has learned something from every relationship. Rather than dwell on what went wrong with her ex-boyfriends, Swift says she uses each break-up to learn what she doesn’t like in a guy, saying “I’d like to think I don’t have to learn the same lesson twice. As I move on from men who hurt me, or were just not right, I think I can start to narrow it down. That’s the hope anyway.”Tweet
