has opened up
about her past relationships, but when it comes to romance, the 19-year-old singer says she was a late bloomer.
"I was 15 and the oldest out of all my friends to have not kissed a guy," Swift tells Your Prom
magazine for its spring issue.
Now she's making up for lost time by writing openly about love. "I like to write about boys and relationships," the "Love Story" singer says.
"I write songs about the things that happen to me, because it helps me figure them out. Writing songs is like breathing for me."
Swift has, of course, been famously linked with
Joe Jonas, of the Jonas Brothers
, but when it comes to her crushes, the singer says her dream date would be Gossip Girl
star Chace Crawford
