Dating is the last thing on my mind’: Taylor Swift insists she’s not looking for love… and reveals fame and fortune have come at a cost
She has been linked to some of the most lusted after men in Hollywood.
But at just 24, Taylor Swift insists she’s given up on looking for love.
Opening up in the November issue of British Vogue, the pop superstar admits that she isn’t interested in dating as it’s almost impossible to find a suitor who can handle her stardom.
She explains: ‘Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind, because I can’t picture how it could work with the way my life is.
'I don’t know how a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can’t protect his girlfriend because that’s the life she chose.'
The Love Story hitmaker reveals that she’s now simply stopped thinking about finding Mr. Right.
She adds: ‘I just don’t see how it could work, so I don’t think about it, and I kind of run from it when it presents itself.
They think that they would want to get to know me, and maybe date me, but I don’t think they want what comes with it.’
The interview comes with her cover shoot for the bible, shot by famed photographer Mario Testino, on which the 24-year-old looks stunning in a knitted jumper dress, pink hooded jacket and with her usually perfectly coiffed blonde locks swept back off her face.
But despite her famous good looks, Taylor admits that she was always an outsider growing up.
She tells the publication: ‘The one thing I wish these girls that come to my shows knew is that they are exactly where I was when I was a teenager.
'I had no idea who I was! I was going through all these phases. I was trying on different outfits and all these different personalities, trying to figure out what category I fit into, and which clique I would be accepted in.
'But if you just keep doing ‘you’, and being who you are and doing what feels natural to you, maybe you won’t find a place where you fit in for a very long time, but you eventually will.'
The star’s dating dilemma comes after failed romances with the likes of Harry Styles, John Mayer and Joe Jonas.
She revealed last month that she hasn’t been on a dating in 18 months.
She told Rolling Stone: ‘I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime.
'And I'm just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore.
'I don't like seeing slide shows of guys I've apparently dated.
I don’t like giving comedians the opportunity to make jokes about me at awards shows. I don’t like it when headlines read ‘Careful, Bro, She’ll Write a Song About You,’ because it trivializes my work.
'And most of all, I don't like how all these factors add up to build the pressure so high in a new relationship that it gets snuffed out before it even has a chance to start. And so, I just don't date.'
