Taylor Swift has a bit of a reputation as a serial dater. Her biggest haters criticize her for jumping from relationship to relationship and some people even say she’s a heartbreaker who goes after guys. Taylor has heard all of those rumors (even though she tries to avoid reading the gossip about herself as much as possible), but she doesn’t let it get her down. In fact, she set the record straight in her recent interview with Elle magazine.

“I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google Alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him – people love that angle on me,” she said. “They’re like ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.’ I never chase boys. They don’t like it!”

Do you believe Tay when she says she doesn’t chase boys? Have you ever chased after a boy? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
