After dating a bevy of men including Harry Styles, Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Conor Kennedy, Taylor Swift is yet to find Mr. Right. The 23-year-old songstress opened up to Glamour UK magazine and talked about what excites her in terms of men and what according to her are the ingredients of a “deal-breaker” in a relationship.
The blonde beauty is seen all decked up in black and white striped pullover that highlights her clear complexion and dark blue mascara laden eyes. The singer also dons a black newsboy cap to complete her tomboyish look. The “Love Story” singer reveals that women are ready to take back their men even if they cheated them because of a great fit or chemistry. However she has never found anyone that great who would be her “perfect fit.”
“Here’s what I’ve learned about deal-breakers. If you have enough natural chemistry with someone, you overlook every single thing that you said would break the deal,” says Swift.
“I’ve seen my friends take someone back after they’ve cheated because they fit perfectly,” admitted the country crooner, adding, “But I don’t know, because I’ve never had a perfect fit with someone.”
The singer has always been in news for going out with a lot of men but she has a reason for it. Taylor believes that people are going to talk about you behind your back especially if you are a woman and are successful one too.
“Well the way it works, as I’ve learned recently is if you reach a point in your career where things are going very well, public perception needs a ‘Yeah, but’. Like, ‘Yeah, but she’s been on a lotta dates apparently.’ ‘Yeah, but I hear she’s crazy.’ I think you’ll find it has a lot to do with being a woman. And I resent that,” continues Swift.
“That there has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you’re a woman and successful. But I’m not gonna say to my guy friends, ‘No, I can’t go to lunch because people will say we’re dating.’ I just reject the idea I have to change the way I live my life.”
Despite her highly publicised heartbreaks, the Nashville resident will keep on dating more famous men in her future. “You can’t say, ‘I’m never gonna date a high-profile person in the arts!’ But whoever I date, famous or not – whether I ever date again! – all chaos will break loose.”
Swift, who was recently cast opposite Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes and Jeff Bridges in “The Giver,” also tells Glamour UK that the entire media backlash doesn’t affect her at all and she distances herself from all the negativity.
“You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things, either way you’re obsessed with yourself and I’m not – you can become unhinged so easily,” explains Taylor.
“Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism. So I distance myself, because I feel everything. The little I am exposed to hurts my feelings. The only things I can really control are my songs and my behavior. The rest? If I focused on it, that would lead to insanity.”
So when the women in her want to get married, settle down and have children?
“I love children – but I don’t know if I’ll have them, especially not any time soon,” revealed Taylor.
We agree to it Swift. You are just 23 and have a whole life ahead of you.
