Country crooner Taylor Swift has dated her share of A-listers, including Joe Jonas, John Mayer, and Twilight’s Taylor Lautner.  The singer is now connected to the always handsome actor Jake Gyllenhaal.  However, according to the December issue of Allure and Us Weekly, America’s sweetheart is terrified of being in the wrong relationship.  “I used to think there were all these rules for making people like you,” said Swift.  “I was filled with advice!  I’d tell my friends things like, ‘Don’t accept that apology!  That isn’t sincere!’ or ‘He hung out with his ex-girlfriend?  Get rid of him.’  But love is never that simple.”How do you know if you’re in a bad relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you think you’re in a bad relationship, you probably are.  Here are a few signs that it may be time to move on:

1. Just friends: If you’re starting to feel that you and your partner were better off as friends, the feeling is probably mutual.  Friends with benefits may be fun for the time being, but it’s not a replacement for a relationship.

2. Nothing in common: It’s fun to date someone who has a unique hobby or interest that you know nothing about.  Learning new things can keep a relationship exciting.  However, if their interests and priorities are keeping you apart more than together, your relationship may be doomed for failure.

3. Clashing values: Personal beliefs on issues such as politics, religion or even finances are possible deal breakers.  Beware of these relationship red flags.
