It's no secret that Taylor Swift has had her fair share of failed romances. She's got a whole discography to prove it. In the December 2012/January 2013 issue of Vibe, Swift discusses her misfortune in relationships to her inherent desire to actually be independent.

"I’m a Sagittarius, which means, you know, I’m blindly optimistic, I love to travel, I’m always up for adventure but also always want something new. Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We’re drawn to love but battle for that need for independence."

"Independence is something I’ve always needed, from when I was young," she says, "but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I’ve never really had a long relationship. So that’s something I think about for the future. It’s an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone."

We're sure Taylor is just going through a phase because, at the end of the day, she loves being in love.
