isn't dwelling on being single.
In fact, the pop star, 23, acknowledges that there's always a chance she'll never be in a relationship again.
"I mean, I know where I'll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I'm going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes," she tells Wonderland
magazine in its latest issue's cover story. "I have no idea if I'm going to get married or be single forever or have a family or just be on my own. You know, paint in a cottage by the ocean by myself. I just have no idea and I'm kind of into that."
But when she has been in relationships
, the aftermath of the split is something she calls "very complex."
Explains Swift, whose exes
include Harry Styles, John Mayer
and Conor Kennedy: "You're never feeling just sad. Maybe you wake up and you feel sad, and then you get angry, and then you feel like, 'I'm fine,' and then you feel confident, and then you feel a sense of doubt, and then you're insecure, and then there's jealousy, and then you're back to sad – and then you feel fine again."
