Taylor Swift on freezing a guy out...
Glamour: When you feel like a guy you’re dating has the upper hand, how do you change the game?
Taylor Swift: Freeze-out.
Glamour: What’s the freeze-out?
TS: You don’t respond to any of his texts or calls until he does something desperate [like] shows up. Or he calls and leaves a voice mail. Something that makes it very clear to you that he’s interested.
Glamour: Have you employed the freeze-out?
TS: [Nods. Pauses.] I think everyone should approach relationships from the perspective of playing it straight and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. Until he establishes that this is a game. And if it’s a game, you need to win. The best thing to do is just walk away from the table.
Glamour: Is that winning?
TS: It is when they come back. [Laughs.] And if they don’t, then they didn’t care enough to begin with.
"Here’s what I’ve learned about deal-breakers. If you have enough natural chemistry with someone, you overlook every single thing that you said would break the deal."

And I resent that. That there has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you’re a woman and successful. But I’m not gonna say to my guy friends ‘No, I can’t go to lunch because people will say we’re dating.’ I just reject the idea. I have to change the way I live my life."
