Selena Gomez has had a rough year, and her break up with Justin Bieber hasn't made things easier. According to Hollywood Life, she's been relying on her family and friends for support — including her bestie Taylor Swift, who has been encouraging her to take a break from dating.

“Taylor is encouraging Selena to follow her lead. Even if she won’t move to New York, she wants her to at least try taking a year off dating. She thinks she should date herself for a while, take the time to get to know herself and appreciate herself."


Taylor hasn't gone on a date since her devastating split from Harry Styles, so we know she's talking from experience.

"She's not going to force it, she’s trying to lead by example," their source said.

Since Taylor always gushes about her supportive group of friends, we think her example is pretty good! However, Justin is apparently trying to win the "Come and Get It" singer back no matter how long it takes. It might be hard for Selena to take a break from guys if he's planning big romantic gestures for her affection.

Do you think Selena should take Taylor's advice? Let us know in the comments!
