Serial monogamist? Not Taylor Swift.

The country singer is just fine being single, and says she’s extremely single at the moment.

“I don’t have a boyfriend,” Swift, 21, says in an interview airing Wednesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I don’t even have, like, kind of a boyfriend. I don’t have someone that I’m texting that is a guy that someday might be my boyfriend. There’s like nothing going on right now.”

That hasn’t always been the case. Over the years, the singer has been linked to Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Taylor Lautner. But she’s okay spending time alone, too.

“You have to be okay with it,” she says. “If you’re the girl that needs a boyfriend, and once she loses that boyfriend needs to replace it with a different boyfriend, it’s just this constant stream of boyfriends all the time. I don’t feel like I ever want to be that girl.”

She’d just like it to be more special than that, adding: “I want to be the girl that when she falls in love, it’s a big deal and it’s a rare thing.”
