Taylor Swift gives dating advice to Selena Gomez

2014-10-18 12:00

Los Angeles - Taylor Swift has given Selena Gomez dating advice.

The 24-year-old singer - who has previously romanced Harry Styles and John Mayer - has reportedly been comforting the Come & Get It hitmaker, 22, following her recent split from her on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber, 20, and been offering her some relationship guidance.

A source told the "She [Taylor] wants her to at least try taking a year off dating. She thinks she should date herself for a while, take the time to get to know herself and appreciate herself.

"But she's not going to force it, she's trying to lead by example this time, instead of forcing her ideas down Selena's throat, she realises she can be kind of pushy and she's working on that."

Selena recently moved out of her parents' home and in to her own property in California but, since breaking up from the troubled singer last month, Taylor believes it will prove beneficial for the actress to move to New York as the blonde beauty has seen such a difference in her own life since moving to the big apple.

The Spring Breaker's star said previously: "She [Taylor] wants to kidnap me. She's been begging me every time we get on the phone, because it's been a really good thing for her. You know, we've been friends for seven years and she really feels like she kind of stepped into her own and became a woman there, and she's like, 'Alright, your turn!' "
