We won't sayTaylor Swift is difficult to date...but she is quite particular.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan's December issue (on stands Nov. 6), the 22-year-old "Red" songstress laid out the dos and don'ts of being her boyfriend.
"I can't deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you," she said. "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."
The country-pop star, who recently split with 18-year-old Conor Kennedy, said she "[needs] that unexplainable spark" in a relationship. "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."
"I've had a lot of dark and twisty situations happen," Taylor added, borrowing a phrase from Grey's Anatomy. "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."
"I've learned when to get out," she said. So far, her exes include John Mayer, Taylor Lautner Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas and Cory Monteith. "I've never wasted too much time with the wrong person and that's one thing I'm proud of."
We'll give her that one.
