Taylor Swift, who has dated Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Lautner & John Mayer, told YOU Magazine that she’s dated men who compare their careers to hers: ‘I’ve found that men I’ve dated who are in the same business can be really competitive. I’ve found a great group of girlfriends in the same business who aren’t competitive, but a few times guys have started comparing careers and it has been.. challenging.
The last thing I think about when I fall for someone is what they do for a living as I like to get to know that person, but sometimes guys start acting weirdly towards me, especially if I get good news and they get bad.. It’s usually downhill from there.
It’s mind-blowing how some guys have just handed me inspiration for some of these songs on a plate. Some have said, ‘Please don’t write about me,’ but only when we’re in the process of breaking up. If a man dates me, he’s kind of signing a waiver saying he’s cool with me writing songs about him.
I write songs about my life: it’s not something I’ve kept secret. ..I was never a boy magnet at school. There was always the girl all the guys liked and wanted to date, but it was never me.” Taylor on politics: ‘I follow it, and I try to keep myself as educated and informed as possible. But I don’t talk about politics because it might influence other people. And I don’t think that I know enough in life to be telling people to vote for.’
