Taylor Swift has had her share of experiences in the relationship department. (Here are just 15 of the many celebrities she’s been linked to in the past.) So it doesn’t come as much of a surprise to hear that she gave pal Jessica Szohr advice on dating Aaron Rodgers. Girl should write her own book (but we guess she has her music for that)!
However, the Gossip Girl star’s not the only one T.Swift’s sharing her expertise with. Read on to find out what the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer told Glamour about the dos and don’ts of dating, as well as other fun tidbits from the March 2014 issue:
On the dating game
"I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it's a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table."

On fights in relationships
"Silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums. Never give anyone an excuse to say that you're crazy."
On the press
"I know when not to read an article. Is it going to help my day? Is it important for my life? If the answer is no, then I just don't click... I'm careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don't have the option of having thick skin. As a writer you have to be open to everything, and that includes pain, rejection, self-doubt, fear. I deal with that enough on my own. If you look hard enough, you could find somebody on the Internet criticizing every single thing about you. If you're me."
On the evolution of her music
"I'm not trying to shed my skin. I'm trying to be a new version of the person I've been my whole life. That's what's held my fans and me together. For a group of millions, it's odd how close I feel to them."
On NOT getting naked
"I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don't really feel like taking them off. It's not an urge I have. For me, 'risky' is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That's putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off."
