Taylor Swift, who is currently dating Harry Styles, revealed: ‘I am totally a girls’ girl! My girlfriends have stopped me from making a lot of bad choices. Your girlfriends are objective, they don’t feel the desperate passionate feelings you’re feeling. They just see that he cheated on you, he lied about it, and you still consider this as a viable option?
We are totally those girls who say, ‘He said he wants me back, do I text him back? Do I not text him back? What do I do? Freeze him out? Yeah, OK, freeze him out’. It’s a committee.’ Harry has done well to rekindle his romance with Taylor if that’s what her ‘committee’ advises on cheats.
They got together earlier this year but it ended when He was spotted kissing New Zealand model Emma Ostilly. Taylor: ‘I can’t deal with someone cheating on you. I don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.’

Despite writing about it so prolifically, Swift claims not to know much about love.I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate. How many times has she been in love? I know how many people I’ve said ‘I love you’ to. I could probably count it up, but I don’t feel like it. Part of me feels you can’t say you were truly in love if it didn’t last. If I end up getting married and having kids, that’s when I’ll know it’s real—because it lasted.
Swift on the bad boys she often seems drawn to. There’s a really interesting charisma involved. They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don’t, they know how to look at you to say it all. I think every girl’s dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore.
Swift is the first to admit that her romances tend to develop—and end—rather swiftly. I don’t think there’s an option for me to fall in love slowly, or at medium speed. I either do or I don’t. I don’t think it through, really, which is a good thing and a bad thing. You don’t look before you leap, which is like, ‘Yay, this is awesome! Let’s not think twice!’ And then you’re like, ‘We used to be flying. Now we’re falling. What’s happening?’
On the difficulty of living in the public eye. I don’t know necessarily how much privacy I’m entitled to, but I know I don’t get much of it. At the same time, I asked for this. I could be playing in a coffee house. I’d be happy doing that, [but] not as happy, probably. Knowing that people are going to hear the music I make is the most amazing feeling. Knowing that there are dudes waiting outside my house with cameras, hiding in the bushes, is a less awesome feeling.
