Taylor Swift is happy being single.

Miss Swift, who has recently been linked to Jake Gyllenhaal, told the Daily Mail she is single but happy.

“I’m not a mopy single girl,” she promises. “I wake up in the morning and think, ‘What do I need to do today?’ and at no point do I think, “I need to find a boyfriend.’”

Taylor also revealed that she was a bit of a loner growing up.

“In school, I dealt with a bunch of different kinds of being alone,” Taylor said.

“And the only thing that got me through really tough days was writing songs about it. I would sit there on those lonely days and say, ‘It’s OK, because I can write a song about this later.’”
