"I have a phobia about being in the wrong relationship. So as soon as I establish that it's not the right one, I don't want to waste their time."
—Taylor Swift (kind of) opening up to Allure magazine about her oft-talked about love life
Doubt it (seriously), but could Jake be responsible for the new outlook on love Tay's blabbing about to mag?
Who knows! 'Cause both halves of the ice-cream-lickin', apple-pickin' duo are staying tight lipped.
(You know, "privacy" and all that. It keeps the tabloids interested, but we're sure that's not their intentions.)
But here's what we do know: If there's one gal who should know love isn't simple, it's Taylor Swift. The country cutie wrote three albums' worth of tunes about the guys who just weren't up to her fairy-tale snuff, after all.
So consider us shocked (Taylor isn't the only one who can be surprised) when Tay 'fessed she's just now realizing relationships aren't always so easy.
"I was filled with advice!" Taylor dishes to the mag. "I'd tell my friends things like, ‘Don't accept that apology! That isn't sincere!' Or, ‘He hung out with his ex-girlfriend? Get rid of him!' But love is never that simple. Now I'm finally getting the idea it's the one thing I don't need to have a strategy for."
How very no-nonsense, Taylor! Like a mini Reese Witherspoon.
We're just hoping Taylor's tell-all approach to making music doesn't change with her new strategy-free search for Prince Charming. But we're thinking it won't:
"Relationships are fascinating and riveting and completely unpredictable. For me, love is everything," Tay says, promising tons more albums packed with lovey-dovey ballads and bitter breakup anthems.
In the case, we can't wait to hear what she's got to bitch about with Jake.
But the question is: Are you buying Jaylor as a power couple yet? Or does it still seem too good to be true?
