Taylor Swift has always been brutally honest about her relationships -- at least in song. And now she's opening up in a new interview about her relationships and gives a major clue as to why they might end so "swiftly"! Taylor told Britain's Glamour magazine:
Here's what I've learned about deal-breakers. If you have enough natural chemistry with someone, you overlook every single thing that you said would break the deal.
Yikes. I don't know what Taylor's "dealbreakers" are -- but dealbreakers are those things you're not supposed to overlook no matter what. That's why they're called "dealbreakers," Taylor. Because they break the deal.
Asked if she'd take back a cheater because they had chemistry, she replied:
I've seen my friends take someone back after they've cheated because they fit perfectly. But I don't know, because I’ve never had a perfect fit with someone.
Gah, what?! Well, Taylor is only 23. Almost 24. That's still pretty young. Hopefully, one day she will realize that "chemistry" is no excuse to overlook your dealbreakers. Unless by chemistry she means that the other person is willing to do all of the hard work necessary to stop breaking your deal!
Like if your deal is "You don't cheat; I don't cheat" -- how can you say, "Well, we have perfect chemistry so I'm going to let that one slide." Your chemistry is damn sure going to change if someone betrays your trust and faith.
The older I get, the less I'm bothered about chemistry. Chemistry is nice, but it fades. A lot of things change during a relationship -- trust me, you are talking to someone whose 10-year partner changed his sexual orientation, so I know -- but chemistry should never be a reason to overlook dealbreakers like cheating, lying, being physically or emotionally abusive.
Chemistry is an odd thing. Just because you have it with someone, and have it in buckets, does not mean that person is good for you. In fact, some of the worst relationships can be overflowing with exciting chemistry.
But stay in one of these toxic relationships for awhile and watch the chemistry of your brain change to something resembling Crazy Town. Watch the chemistry of your body break down and become ill.
If someone cheats, lies, betrays, or otherwise abuses your integrity, then they are NOT "perfect."
Hopefully, Taylor will realize this one day. If she's still writing endlessly about heartbreak at 40, I think all of the mansions and gold albums in the world won't make up for it.
Do you think chemistry should override dealbreakers?
