Even Taylor Swift needs a break from dating sometimes.

The singer has become fully aware of her serial monogamist tendencies (especially since the media takes every chance it gets to remind her) and said in a recent interview that she may be taking a break from the dating pool, admitting that "part of me just wants to be alone."

Since her breakup with 1D'er Harry Styles, Taylor said she's been putting all her energy into her music. "I just know that if you're not careful with things they can go away," she said to Vibe . "I've seen people with careers that were great until they started taking them for granted. And I'm scared of that."

However, that definitely doesn't mean that Taylor has given up on love at the ripe old age of 23. "Independence is something I've always needed... but I love the idea of romance and falling in love," she said. "I've never really had a long relationship. So that's something I think about for the future."

When do you think we'll next see Taylor in a relationship?
