Singer Taylor Swift has admitted that she has never really experienced true love, as she sings in her songs and her famous romances have actually been a lot more about infatuation than love.

Taylor admits to this when looking back at her past relationships in ELLE's latest Women in Music issue.

"I'd never been in a relationship when I wrote my first couple of albums, so these were all projections of what I thought they might be like," she tells her pal, Tavi Gevinson.

"They were based on movies and books and songs and literature that tell us that a relationship is the most magical thing that can ever happen to you. And then once I fell in love, or thought I was in love, and then experienced disappointment or it just not working out a few times, I realized there's this idea of happily ever after which in real life doesn't happen."

"Now I have more of a grasp on the fact that when you're in a state of infatuation and you think everything that person does is perfect, it then,  if you're lucky, morphs into a real relationship when you see that, that person is not in fact perfect, but you still want to see them every day," she explains.

The 25-year-old singer also revealed that her song "You Are In Love" is in fact based on her bestie, Lena Dunham's relationship with Jack Antonoff.

"Yeah. I've never had that," she surprisingly shares. "That's just basically stuff she's told me. And I think that, that kind of relationship -- God, it sounds like it would just be so beautiful -- would also be hard. It would also be mundane at times."

Taylor also hints that she's finally over her relationship with One Direction's Harry Styles. When talking about her song "Clean,".
