Taylor Swift’s songs may be inspired by love, romance and the ups and downs that come with relationships, but dating isn’t a dominant part of her life right now.
As a matter of fact, the 1989 singer recently revealed she’s not dating at all!
During a recent interview with Esquire magazine, Taylor opened up about her love life and why she’s put a hold on dating.
She wants to make it clear that she doesn’t need a man for inspiration, motivation or emotional security.
“I just stopped dating people, because it meant a lot to me to set the record straight – that I do not need some guy around in order to get inspiration, in order to make a great record, in order to live my life, in order to feel okay about myself,” the “Out of the Woods” singer explained.
“I wanted to show my fans the same thing,” she said.
“I’ve done more thinking and examining and figuring out how to cope with things on my own than I would have if I had been focusing on someone else’s emotions and someone else’s schedule. It’s been really good.”
She also explained why she thinks it’s healthy and beneficial for people to embrace being single for individuality purposes. She revealed how being single has helped her to learn how to deal with things on her own.
“I think it’s healthy for everyone to go a few years without dating, just because you need to get to know who you are,” she continued.
“And I’ve done more thinking and examining and figuring out how to cope with things on my own than I would have if I had been focusing on someone else’s emotions and someone else’s schedule. It’s been really good.”
So, does Taylor plan to begin dating again anytime soon? She revealed there isn’t a strong possibility of that right now.
“It doesn’t seem like a possibility at this point in my life. What does seem possible and easy and comfortable is having this entire league of incredible girlfriends that I have.”
