Taylor Swift Talks Independence and Dating, Admits ‘I’ve Never Really Had a Long Relationship’

by: on | in Celebrities | 4 Comments



Taylor Swift is notorious for her serial dating ways, but apparently, there’s a reason behind her many splits. The “Red” singer opened up to Vibe magazine for their December 2012/January 2013 issue, and gave some insight as to why her relationships don’t last very long.

“Independence is something I’ve always needed, from when I was young,” Taylor said. The country star, who most recently split from One Direction‘s Harry Styles earlier this year continued, “but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I’ve never really had a long relationship. So that’s something I think about for the future. It’s an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone.”

According to Taylor, one of the main reasons for her need of independence stems from her astrological sign. “I’m a Sagittarius, which means, you know, I’m blindly optimistic, I love to travel, I’m always up for adventure but also always want something new. Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We’re drawn to love but battle for that need for independence.”

Over the last few years, Taylor has been linked to singer John Mayer, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, Twilight star Taylor Lautner, as well as Conor Kennedy, to name a few. Coincidentally, most fellas have songs written about them, to which Taylor credits as her version of risk taking. “Different people take their chances in different ways. Some people take fashion risks, or in their lives and what they say, or they give really edgy interviews. I leave the risks to my music. I let it speak from where my life is. I don’t take risks fashion-wise, I don’t take risks in the way I live my life. But I leave my risks to my music.”

    omg they announced that they were dating kate so you can go on the internet or tv and you can see they announced they were dating

    does no one understand that her and harry styles never dated they kissed that was it just because people kiss doesn’t mean they’re dating.

    Maybe, just maybe, it might not be that “part of me wants to alone” or whatever, maybe the problem is that your too clingy. You have a large amount of money and i really do mean a large amount of money, that lets you buy whatever you like, any clothes, any cars, any jewelry, any house,mansion,building,etc. But you go and buy the closest house to your boyfriend (really stalker of you), thats my opinion. Oh, and by the way, you seriously should stop dating younger guys. imagine when you were 14 how old were they? 11? 12? Would you’ve dated an 11 year old when you were 14? i dont think so

      Well goodness, the difference between 11 and 14 is much greater developmentally than the difference between 18 and 22.
