It sounds like Taylor Swift has this whole love life thing down on lock!
In the September Vanity Fair cover story, the singer revealed how her dating life has evolved and changed over the years, including the do’s and don’ts of relationships.
The Bad Blood singer explained:
“But usually I don’t make the same mistake twice. I make new ones, but I don’t usually repeat my old ones.”
Not everyone can say that, but Swifty can!
She also confessed:
“I think that I just decided if the media was going to say that about me, that I was boy-crazy and so dependent on men and all that, I wasn’t going to give them a reason to say that anymore, and I wasn’t going to be seen around any men for years—so that’s what I did. And what ended up happening was I became happier than I had ever been before. I swore I would never ever get in another relationship if it meant changing who I was, or taking me out of that mode where my friends are everything to me. I wasn’t looking for anything, not necessarily being open to anything, and only being open to the idea that, if I found someone who would never try to change me, that would be the only person I could fall in love with. Because, you know, I was in love with my life.”
So smart! You got to love yourself before you can love someone else!
The beauty added:
“In every friendship group, you’ve got one or two girls where you hear people say, ‘Oh, she’s so different around her boyfriend!’ I never wanted to be that girl. So that was a huge goal of mine: never ever become someone else for the sake of a relationship. If you’re a people pleaser, like most of us are, you try to adapt to what signals that person is giving off. It’s not about changing the fact that you’re a people pleaser; it’s about finding someone who is not critical. That can be the most painful thing, trying to love someone who is critical in their nature.”
Aww, who ever dared to criticize her?! Girl is flawless and we’re glad she found 100% support in Calvin!
Congrats on staying true to who are you are while being in love, Tay!
