Taylor Swift believes there is only the "tiniest chance" she will have a "real and long-lasting relationship."
The 'Blank Space' hitmaker, who has been single since splitting from One Direction star Harry Styles in early 2013, thinks it's unlikely she'll ever find her soul mate and isn't willing to give up her "independence for anyone."
The 24-year-old singer said: "I've been with myself for so long now, I like it. I'm not willing to give up that independence for anyone.
"Basically, there's the tiniest, tiniest, tiniest chance you might find someone you can have a real and long-lasting relationship with. In my teenage years, I was enamoured by the idea of romance because I thought it was going to be this 'happily ever after' situation."
Despite being an active user of social media, the blonde beauty, who also previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Taylor Lautner, told November/December issue of Wonderland magazine that she doesn't like the "veil of anonymity" on Twitter and Instagram.
She said: "Twitter's dark underbelly is that it gives people a veil of anonymity: they can have a terrible day at work, feel awful about themselves, come home and get drunk and go call someone ugly on Instagram.
"If people don't have anyone to talk to about [their problems], they go online and just say wicked, gross, cruel mean-spirited things about people. I wrote 'Shake It Off' for my own situation, but also for the situation that everyone finds themselves in now. It's not a celebrity issue, it's a people issue." – Bang Showbiz
