Taylor Swift is allegedly scared to date anyone at the moment. The Bad Blood hitmaker was recently rumoured to be in a relationship with British actor Joe Alwyn.

A source told Hollywood Life: "Taylor is terrified of making the same mistakes in every relationship so she is doing everything she can to protect her love life. She is happy, excited, nervous, anxious and worried about falling in love all over again."

"She has had her challenges with so many relationships. She has been very open with her fans about all of her guys in the past and she is ready for a change. This time she wants to try something different in hopes having less stress on the relationship," the insider added.

In December 2015, during an interview with NME magazine, Swift said she feels the world is too interested in her personal life. She told the publication: "I'm in the news every single day for multiple different reasons. And it can feel, at times, if you let your anxiety get the better of you, like everybody's waiting for you to really mess up – and then you'll be done."

"A lot of the time I need to call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and all the things that matter. If you do something that defines your character to be not what the public thought you were, that's the biggest risk," Swift added.

Swift also predicted she would be single at 30. She told the Telegraph: "Let's be honest. No one's going to sign up for this and everything that goes with it. Like, 'Hi, nice to meet you, want a date? Do you love camera flashes? I hope you do!' I don't know what's going to happen if I'm ever content in a relationship -- no idea how that's going to work. I don't even know if that's possible with the life I have."
