Taylor Swift Reveals Why She Stopped Dating 18 Months Ago

Taylor Swift wears her signature color red while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a highly anticipated interview on Thursday (October 23) in Hollywood.

The 24-year-old singer shut down Hollywood Boulevard for an outdoor performance of songs from her new album 1989, which will be available on Monday.

In a new interview with The Sun, Taylor revealed that she hasn’t been on a date in over 18 months.

“I get stressed when I think about getting into a relationship because I get beat up in the press whenever I go near a boy,” Taylor said. “So you can understand why I’m taking a bit of a break. A relationship is not in my brain right now. Staying single has been the best thing I have done… I’m not wary of getting into another relationship. I’m just protective of my independence and freedom, more protective than I have been before. I always thought, ‘What could be better than to love someone and be loved back?’ I finally found what it is to love yourself and not need anyone to love you back.”
