She may traffic in tales of romance, but Taylor Swift isn't sure how many times she's actually been in, you know, love.
"I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate," she says in the Sunday issue of Parade. "I know how many people I've said 'I love you' to. I could probably count it up, but I don't feel like it. Part of me feels you can't say you were truly in love if it didn't last. If I end up getting married and having kids, that's when I'll know it's real - because it lasted."
Speaking of her ex-loves - er, likes? - Swift explains her penchant for prince not-so-charming. With bad boys, "there's a really interesting charisma involved. They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don't, they know how to look at you to say it all. I think every girl's dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore."
Does Harry Styles' capacious new chest ink put him firmly in the bad boy column?
