Taylor Swift loves love, but even this hopeless romantic needs a break from the emotional warfare sometimes.

Shortly after splitting up with Harry Styles, the 23-year-old country-pop star told Vibe that she enjoys being a single girl--sometimes.

"Independence is something I've always needed, from when I was young," she said, "but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I've never really had a long relationship. So that's something I think about for the future. It's an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone."

"I'm a Sagittarius, which means, you know, I'm blindly optimistic, I love to travel, I'm always up for adventure but also always want something new," she adds. "Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We're drawn to love but battle for that need for independence."

"I just know that if you're not careful with things they can go away," she adds, and no, she's not referring to boy-toys' hearts. "I've seen people with careers that were great until they started taking them for granted. And I'm scared of that."

Somehow, we don't see her going away anytime soon.
