Los Angeles - Taylor Swift is worried about falling in love again.
The Blank Space hitmaker, who has been single since splitting from Harry Styles in December 2013, admits she deliberately took a step back from dating to focus on her career and friendships.
She does however fear people will see it as a "weakness" if she opens herself up to love in the future.
The 25-year-old singer, who also previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer, explained: "I wasn't going to sit next to somebody and flirt with them for five minutes, because I know the next day he'll be rumoured to be my boyfriend. I just kind of took the narrative back.
"It's unfortunate I had to do that. And it's unfortunate that now I have this feeling like if I were to open myself up to love, that would be a career weakness."
But the blonde beauty claims she has changed a lot recently and insists she no longer really cares what people think about her.
She told the US March issue of Vogue: "This last year has felt very different than any other year of my life. I've felt more settled and unapologetic about who I am and what I stand for.
"I think that might be one of those symptoms of growing up and becoming your own person, and depending less on other people's opinions of you. I just hope that keeps going because I'm liking it.''
In light of Taylor's love worries, Vogue helped her and her BFF Karlie Kloss prove why they both are 'best best friends'.
