Taylor Swift is a modern, young woman who dates – and it’s not always going to be a “Love Story.”

The 25-year-old music superstar opened up to the June 2015 issue Glamour UK about her dating life and how it’s been portrayed in the press – P.S., she says we’ve got it all wrong so far!
“I think the media has sent me a really unfair message over the past couple of years, which is that I’m not allowed to date for excitement, or fun, or new experiences or learning lessons,” Taylor told the magazine.

And don’t even think about calling Taylor “boy crazy.”
“I’m only allowed to date if it’s for a lasting, multiple-year relationship. Otherwise I’m a, quote, ‘serial dater.’ Or, quote, ‘boy crazy.’ The narrative has been so wrong, every time it was the same,” she continued. “It’s ‘Taylor spotted talking to this guy, she’s chasing him.’ They create a beginning to the story that didn’t happen most of the time, so then they have to create an ending.”
The singer, who explained that her life has “no easy way for me to engage with romance,” sticks with her girl squad instead of worrying about guys.

“I’m really busy, so I can’t. And it’s a good thing that I feel really independent and I feel that my friends are all I need. It’s kind of a sad way I got there, though, being shamed into it,” she told the mag.
Adding, “Well, what else is it when you have two boyfriends in one year and everyone’s calling you boy crazy, making jokes about you at awards shows? That’s public humiliation. And I don’t think it’s fair.”
