While the 23-year-old singer has a number of tricks she uses to show a member of the opposite sex when she is interested in him, Taylor insists she would never actively pursue someone.
She said: "I ran into this problem a lot when I was in Junior High because the guy I liked never noticed me. The best thing to do is give little hints. Go up and talk to him! But don't seem desperate. And never chase a boy.
'I think it's always good to be somebody's friends first. If it escalates into something more, that's awesome. If not, now you've got another friend. 'Never be jealous. You can be competitive, but never be jealous. If you're jealous in a relationship, it's because you're not confident in yourself.'
Taylor also revealed she had her first kiss at the age of 15.
The 'We Are Never Getting Back Together' hitmaker - who has dated a string of stars including Joe Jonas, Harry Styles and Jake Gyllenhaal - says she was a late bloomer but is happy she waited because she dated the guy for a year afterwards.
She told Tiger Beat: 'I was 15. I was one of the last of my friends to ever kiss a guy. It wasn't a bad kiss. I think it was cute. We ended up dating for a year!'
