Taylor Swift says she's been publicly humiliated into having no love life! While guest-editing Glamour UK, the singer revealed that she feels very ambivalent about entering a new relationship.
"You take something very fragile, like trying to get to know someone, and it feels like walking out into the middle of a gladiator arena with someone you've just met. And all of a sudden the public and the media are allowed to say thumbs up or thumbs down. So I just don't try it any more," she confessed.
In fact, the pop star feels like she's been "shamed" into her single life.
"Well, there is no easy way for me to engage with romance. 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. 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."

Even though she's recently been linked to Calvin Harris, the "Blank Space" singer says that she is tired of being accused of dating too many guys.
"Yeah, I do feel jaded about relationships, to be honest. 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. 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'," she says.
That does sound rough! It must be really difficult for her to date (and write songs about her romantic endeavors) in the public eye. So we support her dating decisions, whether she decides to stay single or dive into a relationship.
