Taylor Swift Admits She Is More Realistic About Romance & Hasn't Had Recent Heartache

Taylor Swift covers the 40th anniversary issue of PEOPLE and in the feature, she spoke about her new perspective on romance and how her life informs her music. Swift hasn't been dating, so she hasn't been writing songs about love and heartbreak. That makes total sense. She is writing what she knows and right now, she doesn't know new heartbreak.
"I used to be fascinated by romance," Swift, who is oft (and unfairly) criticized for her very public failed relationships, said. "Now I'm more realistic."
Good goin', girl!
While Swift has written about her romances in confessional fashion on her records and in her songs, such is not the case for her new platter 1989, out October 27. [iTunes link]
"When I'm deeply hurt, I usually respond by writing exactly how I feel in a song, but I just haven't been devastated in the last couple of years," Swift said, so her new album isn't about heartache since she hasn't had heartache. "I made the decision to spend time on my own and figure out who I am."
What a strong woman T. Swizzle is!
She continued, "Emotionally speaking, 1989 is not a heartbreak record. My music is derived from what's happening in my personal life, and I haven't had my heart broken. You're not going to hear, oh, like, 'boyfriend dissing.'"
Whatever T. Swizzle writes about, we're down to hear it.
