When Taylor Swift first started writing songs as a young teen, she'd never been in a relationship, so she based her material on things she'd read about, or seen in movies, or heard about in song lyrics.  But these days, Taylor admits her view of love is a lot less magical than it's made out to be. In the cover story for the new issue of ELLE magazine, Taylor says, "Once I fell in love, or thought I was in love, and then experienced disappointment or it just not working out a few times, I realized there's this idea of…
