Story of the Day: Taylor Swift Doesn’t Waste Time on the Wrong Person

Taylor Swift, who just recently parted ways with boyfriend Conor Kennedy, says she doesn’t hang around in a relationship if she can tell she’s with the wrong person. She says that over the years she has learned to get out when the time is right rather than letting the romance linger, and that when she knows it’s not meant to be, she immediately calls it quits:

“I’ve learned when to get out. I’ve never wasted too much time with the wrong person and that’s one thing I’m proud of.”

Commenting on what she won’t put up with in a relationship, she says that cheating is ranked high on her list, but also if someone doesn’t treat her with the same passion or respect that she shows them. She just wants to be treated fairly and isn’t keen to end up dating someone who mistreats her as she has done in the past:

“I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you. It’s a conscious thing: it’s a common-sense thing… If I was in that situation, if I were them, would I be doing this to me? Would I ever do this to them? If the answer is no, then they’re not treating me fairly. I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again.”

Taylor says that she needs a guy to have a spark in order for her to be won over and for the relationship to last:

“I need that unexplainable spark…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.”
