Taylor Swift (Getty Images)True love has been elusive for Taylor Swift.
The country singer, 23, has had a string of high-profile relationships with some of Hollywood's biggest heartthrobs. However, despite those cute PDA pix and the sweet love songs she's written (not to be confused with those scathing breakup songs she's also know for), she has never felt a true connection to any of them.
Talking relationship deal breakers in the November issue of Glamour U.K., Swift — whose exes include Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner, Conor Kennedy, and Joe Jonas (whew!) — said that she actually doesn't have any. The Nashville resident keeps an open mind about everything when she is getting to know a potential mate.
"If you have enough natural chemistry with someone, you overlook every single thing that you said would break the deal," said Swift, sounding like a hopeless romantic.
But what about guys who cheat? That's a deal breaker for sure, right? Not necessarily.
"I've seen my friends take someone back after they've cheated because they fit perfectly. But I don't know, because I’ve never had a perfect fit with someone," admitted the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer, who has built a career off of songs about her relationship ups and downs.
The country singer on the cover of Glamour U.K.What she does know is she's not going to count out any potential prospects — even if the guy is famous.
"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 with fabrication and frantic obsession and who likes who more and how it ended," she said. "But right now is easy because I'm single and happy, and it's very relaxing."
And don't think she's ever sitting at home searching her name on the Internet.
"I never read one hateful thing said about me by some 12-year-old," she told the mag. "So I got to live an actual life. And I've kept that mentality. Just because there's a hurricane going on around you doesn't mean you have to open the window and look at it.
"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," she continued. "You can become unhinged so easily. 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."
