Taylor Swift has explained why she spends so much time single – she has a "relationship phobia" which leads her to dump boyfriends as soon as she realizes they are not the "one".
The 20-year-old has enjoyed a series of high-profile relationships in recent years – she has dated Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner and is now rumored to be in a relationship with Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal. But Swift admits she often cuts romances short because she is terrified of ending up with the wrong man.
She tells Allure magazine, "It's a little strange that I'm typically single a lot. I have a phobia about being in the wrong relationship. So as soon as I establish it's not the right one, I don't want to waste their time."
Taylor covers the December issue of Allure, on newsstands later this month.

On giving out horrid relationship advice: "Like, the best way to get a guy to like you would be to actively ignore him. I was filled with advice! 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. I can only write the material I know, which is what happens to me."
On recalling her 2009 interview where she noted Kayne West as the person she'd like to work with: "I forgot about that! Oh, wow! That's...wow, that's eerie, isn't it?"
On using perfumes to remember: "I'd put on Abercrombie 8 to remember when I was in ninth grade and had my first boyfriend, because he gave me that. The coolest girl in school wore Britney Spears Fantasy, and I had to copy her. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is still a difficult one for me to smell."
