Well that may explain why she's going out Harry Styles then.
According to a source the 23-year-old singer felt out of her depth when dating older men in the past such as Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer.
The source explained: "Jake and John made her feel inferior. With younger men, she really feels like she's in control."
So with Harry being just 18, it seems that Taylor has found her perfect man.

However, according to In Touch Weekly, Taylor doesn't dwell on her failed relationships as she sees them as great fodder for her next album.
A source told the magazine: "Taylor's a serial dater. She gets too clingy with guys or she gets sick of them.
"Harry will break her heart but isn't that the point? It'll become material for her next album."

Taylor and Harry have been spotted together more and more recently over the past month- prompting rumours that things have gotten serious between the two.
Harry best watch out however if he wants to take things slow with the singer as she recently admitted that she is obsessed with the idea of falling in love.
She said: "I think about love all the time. I have done since I was able to comprehend what love was, I daydream about it all the time.
"There was a relationship that was an extreme let-down, one that was a betrayal, one where I got cheated on, one where I had my self confidence chipped away piece by piece.
"But even after your heart explodes into a million pieces and you're thinking, 'Why did this have to happen?' You make eye contact with someone across the room and it clicks - and bang, you're in love again."
