Taylor Swift insists she hasn't met her perfect man and is annoyed that she is perceived as a serial dater.

The '22' singer - who split with One Direction's Harry Styles in February - says she resents society's attitude towards successful women, but refuses to let the negativity prevent her from having guys as friends.

Taylor - who covers the November issue of Glamour - fumed to the magazine: ''Well the way it works, as I've learned recently is if you reach a point in your career where things are going very well, public perception needs a 'Yeah, she's been on a lotta dates apparently.' 'Yeah, I hear she's crazy.' I think you'll find it has a lot to do with being a woman. And I resent that.''

''There has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you're a woman and successful. But I'm not gonna say to my guy friends, 'No, I can't go to lunch because people will say we're dating.' I just reject the idea I have to change the way I live my life.''

The 23-year-old beauty claims becoming obsessed with tabloid stories would eventually lead to ''insanity'' so she chooses to focus her energy solely on her music.

She explained: ''You can be obsessed with the bad things people say and the good things, either way you're obsessed with yourself and I'm not--you can become unhinged so easily,''

''Vanity can apply to both insecurity and egotism. So I distance myself, because I feel everything. The little I am exposed to hurts my feelings. The only things I can really control are my songs and my behaviour. The rest? If I focused on it, that would lead to insanity.''
