For what feels like the hundredth time since they broke up, [artist id="2389485"]Taylor Swift[/artist] is once again insisting that she’s moved on from teen heartthrob Joe Jonas, after [news id="1599032"]she told MTV News[/news] last month “that’s a chapter in my life that’s closed now.”
“What I’ve learned is that I’ve really moved on from it,” she said to The Boot.com about her breakup from the middle [artist id="2088128"]Jonas Brother[/artist].
Despite a very public breakup that had Swift blaming Joe’s [news id="1599741"]current paramour Camilla Belle[/news] for the break-up — and then having [news id="1599318"]all three Jonas brothers weigh in[/news] on it, saying that wasn’t the case — she said she’s now learning to let things go.
“You can’t stress about what you can’t change,” she said. “You have to live your life and be happy in spite of whatever doubts you might have or whatever might have happened.” But, be advised, Swift and Jonas are expected to cross paths on New Year’s Eve, when they’re both scheduled to perform on [news id="1600879"]“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”[/news]
Swift also told The Boot.com that she’s not ready to jump back into a relationship, and that she’s happy being single and working hard to promote her [news id="1599721"]latest album, Fearless[/news].
“I’m not typically the girl who dates a lot of guys or is in relationships a lot,” Swift, who turns 19 on Saturday, said. “Most of my life, I’ve been single. If I meet somebody who’s great, I’ll make an exception. But I’m really happy being alone … I don’t feel a sense of emptiness if I don’t have a boyfriend.”
She did, however, say that she has some key dating rules that she brings to any relationship. “If you’re like, ‘I need to talk to you’ all the time, [or] ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ … If you’re that girl, then nobody’s going to want to date you,” she explained. “I have this rule: I don’t call a guy first. And you can’t ever send two text messages in a row.”
Swift claims she brings one thing to the table as anyone’s girlfriend: her strong sense of self. “It’s so important to be confident in who you are,” Swift said. “The best thing you can bring to a relationship is a whole person.”
