T. Swift On Heartbreak: ‘It’s Complex’

By: Cory Lopez / April 8, 2013

Like any fan of her music knows all too well, Taylor Swift has had her heart broken a time or two.

But even with her storied experience with ending relationships, Swift can’t sum up the feeling of heartbreak in a single word.

“It’s very complex; you’re never feeling just sad,” she says in the Summer 2013 issue of Wonderland magazine, explaining the roller-coaster emotions that accompany a breakup.

“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,” she continues. “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.”

Now several months since the split, Swift, 23, seems to have bounced back from her her fling with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles. But that doesn’t mean the country-pop star will rush into a new romance.

“Relationships are like traffic lights,” she reasons. “And I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it’s a green light.”

And beyond her love life, Swift — who is currently crisscrossing North America on her RED tour — is setting her sights on the future. But instead of predicting what’s to come, the Grammy-winning singer is simply going with the flow.

“I’ve kind of realized that I have no idea where I’m going to be next year, or in six months, or in two months,” she explains. “I [have] no idea where I’m going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes. 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.”

“I just have no idea and I’m kind of into that,” she continues. “You can make a board for all the goals you want in your life with the pictures on it, and that’s great, daydreaming is wonderful, but you can never plan your future.”

Where do you think Swift will be in one year? Prophesize about her future in the comments.
