Swift warned about dating younger men

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has been advised to date older men.

The 23-year-old country music darling has a reputation for being a serial dater and most recently broke it off with 18-year-old One Direction singer Harry Styles.

The British boy band star was the latest in a string of failed romances for the star.

Taylor has been linked to Joe Jonas, Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and notorious lothario John Mayer.

Relationship expert Dr. Jenn Berman told America's OK! magazine she's not surprised Taylor's relationships have been so short-lived because most of the men she's dated are young and probably immature.

"I think that probably she needs someone older than her and someone successful [who understands] the business she's in. Probably someone who is creative, but not necessarily that's not all that they do. She could use someone who is stable and well planted," Dr. Berman said.

The television personality, who features on VH1 show Couples Therapy, also warned Taylor about keeping her relationships out of the media.

She suggests the singer should stop writing songs about her love interests because she is alienating an entire pool of potential suitors by going public with her qualms.

"Creatively speaking I think it's brilliant!" she said.

"In terms of relationships, that's not such a great idea because I think that a lot of guys who might date her would feel worried about how public this is going to be. I also think that with celebrities there is a certain expectation that someone you date is not going to speak of you in the tabloids or in the media and that's your hope, but I think you don't get it have it both ways."

Taylor has yet to comment on the remarks.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
