Taylor Swift’s songs say a lot about her life and her relationships. But when it comes down to it, she says all she really wants is a great guy.
Taylor Swift‘s love life has been the topic of conversation lately, especially with the release of her new album — which is full of relationship tidbits. And the singer, who has said she only talks about her love life through song, actually sat down with Cosmopolitan magazine this month to talk about what she is looking for in a guy.
“I need that unexplainable spark… I just need to see someone and feel, “Oh, no, uh-oh,'” she told the magazine, via MTV. “It’s only happened a few times in my life, but I feel like if I was gonna be with someone forever, it would be because I saw them and I thought, ‘Oh, no.'”
Swift has been linked to at least five famous guys in the last few years, but she didn’t mention which ones made her feel that spark. And while she is currently single after recently breaking up with boyfriend Conor Kennedy, the experiences have given her the perspective she needs to know when to give up.
“I’ve learned when to get out. I’ve never wasted too much time with the wrong person, and that’s one thing I’m proud of,” she said. “I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing. It’s a common-sense thing. I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair, ever again.”
She also doesn’t mention who she is talking about when using the words “cheating” and “again,” but based on her songs, it isn’t hard to guess. And whether or not those guesses are right, the words in her songs might make her fans think differently about her exes.
“I’ve had a lot of dark and twisty situations happen, enough to realize that when someone exhibits signs of evoking a dark and twisty relationship and dark and twisty feelings, it’s not interesting to me,” she said.
But for the singer, she is looking forward to the future while enjoying the present. She obviously loves what she does but knows life will change eventually.
“Being a mom full time, doing everything for my kids, having a bunch of them. One day, I’m sure,” she told Cosmo. “But that’s the only other thing that could be as thrilling for me as doing this.”
Swift’s album Red came out Oct. 22 and sold over 1.2 million copies its first week out.
