Swift likes boyfriends to 'take charge'

Taylor Swift likes a man to "take charge" in her relationships.

The 'Love Story' singer - whose ex-boyfriends include Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas - hates having to be dominant in a relationship but likes to have her own voice heard.

She said: "I want a guy who takes charge, but lets me have my say once in a while. A good relationship is all about balance and chemistry."

The 20-year-old beauty is currently single but insists she never goes looking for love.

She explained: "I don't wake up in the morning and think: 'Am I going to find a boyfriend today?' I think it's more exciting if it's right in front of you and you can't ignore it, with someone who has this unexplainable draw."

The singer famously uses her relationships as material for songs but insists it doesn't make her boyfriends treat her any differently.

She said: "Every guy who walks in my life has had fair warning that this is what I do. I've been this way for three albums.

"It's easy for guys to forget that I write about everything because it's my job and they're in a relationship with me."
