After years of being criticised for her dating life, it is no surprise that Taylor Swift took some time out to focus on herself. However, the Bad Blood singer has hinted that her new boyfriend Calvin Harris has changed her attitude to love. In a candid interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Swift, 25, admitted that she had somewhat closed herself off to the idea of finding 'the one' unless she found someone who would accept her, flaws and all.

The Grammy-winner explained: "That was the way that I decided to go on with my life. Not looking for anything, not necessarily being open to anything, and only being open to the idea that, if I found someone who would never try to change me, that would be the only person I could fall in love with. Because, you know, I was in love with my life."

The Style singer has been in a relationship with Blame producer and DJ Harris since April 2015. Harris recently revealed that their romance is "fantastic", saying in another interview that his girlfriend is an "incredible human being". The DJ told radio station Kiss FM: "It's going absolutely fantastic. It's interesting because obviously there's different things written about it every day, and even if we don't do anything publicly for a while, someone will make something up. For me, it could be a lot worse and I'd still be like insanely happy with her, so I'm good with it."

Speculation is rife that the couple's relationship could be getting serious, with reports from Life & Style claiming the Scottish musician has purchased a $500,000 (£320,000) ring to propose to the singer. Swift is believed to have dated a number of high-profile men, including One Direction singer Harry Styles and actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Lautner. In her interview with the magazine, the chart-topper admitted that her group of girlfriends have all dated each other's ex-boyfriends at some point.

One of her ex-boyfriends, actor and singer Joe Jonas, is currently dating her BFF and model Gigi Hadid, but she says the partner swap is not such a big deal in her circle of friends. She told Vanity Fair: "It's almost like the sisterhood has such a higher place on the list of priorities for us. We even have girls in our group who have dated the same people. It's so much more important than some guy that it didn't work out with."
