Swift: Men want real love

Taylor Swift isn’t interested in dating “boys”.

Taylor Swift sees the male species divided into two groups: men and boys.

The 24-year-old singer has a song on her new album 1989 called Blank Space, boasting one telling line: “Boys only want love if it’s torture.”

And Taylor shared her inspiration for the song in a new interview with UK newspaper The Sun.

“I was thinking about this,” she said. “Boys only want love if it’s torture and a constant chase. Men want love if it’s real, right, healthy and consistent.”

But the star isn’t referring to the entire male species.

“Noooo,” she insisted.

“Any girl who’s really thought a lot about romance and relationships and break-ups has determined that the male species has divided into two groups — and it’s boys and men.

“You can have a 40-year-old boy and you can have a 20-year-old man — it depends on their emotional DNA.”

Taylor’s love life has been the subject of tabloid fodder for years, with John Mayer, Harry Styles and Jake Gyllenhaal among the famous men with whom she’s been seen.

But the singer has been candid about her intent to stay single over the last two years. And she doesn’t seem eager to rush into anything.

“I’m at the place in my life where I’m 24, I’m not really willing to compromise my happiness for some trivial dating adventure," she said.

“I don’t see that as something I’m interested in right now,” she said, adding that music will continue to be her main focus.

“I want to work hard. I want to make music I’m proud of. I want to travel the world. I want to have adventures. I want to be the best friend I can be. And I think sometimes your priorities change.

“I have so much love in my life without having a love affair in my life," she continued. “I think it’s important to find romance and magic in your life without there being a relationship that constitutes that."
