Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is well-known not only for her music but also for writing about her failed relationships. One could argue that an occupational hazard of going steady with her is that you will likely end up as the subject of one of her songs, being called out for all the horrible ways in which you failed to treat her as she most allegedly deserves.

Now, I’m no Taylor Swift—unless you count my boyish good looks—but I can identify with at least one aspect of her normal mode of operation. Setting aside the dubious ethics of her tendency to tell all, her outlook is, simply, that of a writer.
