It's no secret country superstar Taylor Swift has kept her career white-hot with personal songs about her love life heartbreak with an A-list parade of exes such as John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Cory Monteith and most recently, Conor Kennedy.
Now, the 22-year-old opens up to December issue of Cosmopolitan about what makes her love life tick -- and in some case, stop ticking.
“I’ve learned when to get out," the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer said. "I’ve never wasted too much time with the wrong person and that’s one thing I’m proud of.”
Taylor said she needs an "unexplainable spark" in her romance to keep things adrift.
“I just need to see someone and feel, 'Oh, no, uh-oh.' 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.'”
She said she's “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.”
As for deal-breakers?
“I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you," the beautiful Grammy-winner told the magazine. "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.”
Swift's new red hot album Red is in stores now; December's Cosmopolitan hits newsstands on Tuesday, November 6.
