Taylor Swift graces the cover of the April/May issue of Wonderland magazine, and inside she opens up about romance and heartbreak. Could she be talking about her painful breakup with Harry Styles earlier this year?
“Relationships are like traffic lights. And I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it’s a green light,” Taylor tells the British mag.
The 23-year-old breaks down the stages of heartache. “It’s very complex; you’re never feeling just sad,” she says. “Maybe you wake up and you feel sad, and then you get angry, and then you feel like ‘I’m fine’, and then you feel confident, and then you feel a sense of doubt, and then you’re insecure, and then there’s jealousy, and then you’re back to sad – and then you feel fine again.”
For now, Taylor says she’s unsure of what the future holds. “I have no idea if I’m going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself.”
But the ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer says she’s still optimistic that the coming year will be a good one.
‘So even if, you know, you go through difficult things, hard things, unexpected things that kind of knock you over for a second, I think the year 2013, that has to mean that things are happening for a reason, right?’
