Taylor Swift and her boyband beau Harry Styles abruptly ended their romance early last week and the country star has commented on the experience.
The Daily Star quotes her as saying, "one of the most important lessons I've learnt in love is there's no pattern."
She then goes on to suggest that it may be time for a break from the dating scene; "Being in love is the most wonderful thing that can happen to you, though you don't want to be monkey-barring from one relationship to the next."
The blonde beauty, 23, has been linked to One Direction heartthrob Harry back for only a few months, in which time Harry got a ship tattoo, which apparently was to match a similar one of Taylor's.

According to a source for the Sun, "Harry and Taylor only dated for a short time but there were very strong feelings, so it's been a tough comedown."
Taylor is known for having a turbulent love life, rarely being single and of course using her heartache and relationship failings as inspiration for her music.
Following her split from Styles she tweeted "Back in the studio. Uh oh..."
Sounds like it's time for some me time Taylor.
