Taylor Swift wants to make one thing clear: She’s not a man-eater.
“If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” the singer, who’s been linked to the likes of John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal, tells the new issue of Vanity Fair. “The fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with…it’s just kind of ridiculous.”
The two men she’s referring to are One Direction’s Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy.

Before dating Harry, with whom she’d split in early January, Taylor romanced Conor over the summer. The pair called it quits in the fall due to their schedules.
Famous for writing about her exes in her hit records – but never concealing who they’re specifically about – the 23-year-old explains why she finds it “a little sexist” that people judge her material.
She said, “For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”
NEWS: Harry Styles talks ex Taylor Swift
As for her relationship with Harry, Taylor allows an anonymous source to talk about her time with the teen heartthrob.
“He wore her down,” the source says. “He was all, like, ‘You’re amazing – I want to be with you. I want to do this.’”
The reason for their first split? He inevitably became a bit much for her. They broke up the first time after a photo was leaked of him kissing another girl goodbye, which looked like more according to the source.
After pursuing Taylor again, they got back together. “But the whole time she says she feels like he’s looking at every girl … It was like a pendulum for her, swinging back and forth.”
Harry’s rep denies all these claims.

The source also confirms her relationships with John and Jake. “She was really young and they were in their 30s, and she got really hurt,” the insider adds. “So it was like ‘That hurt – this won’t. But then it did.’”
As for the singer buying places near her boyfriends, she says, “If I like you I will apparently buy up the real-estate market just to freak you out so you leave me.”
Well, one rumor has been confirmed: That Taylor did in fact buy a house in Hyannis Port while dating Conor — his aunt Rory Kennedy suggested she should. “It was like a house-flip,” the source says. “A good short-term investment.”
