John Mayer has been through a lot of women. He was labeled a “serial dater” and had his share of public affairs.
Many of Mayer’s relationships have come under public scrutiny. Relationships with other celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift bolstered his reputation as a womanizer.
Dating a man with no history of settling down for a long time requires patience and understanding.
Here are 8 strict rules that John Mayer makes his girlfriends follow
1. Lack of privacy is a deciding factor.
Who can forget the time Mayer told Playboy magazine that sex with Jessica Simpson was like “napalm.” This revelation is what ended the recurring relationship between the two.
Simpson and Mayer began dating shortly after her public divorce from Nick Lachey. The two separated between 2006 and 2010 and reconciled nine times, according to Mayer.
He called Simpson, “a drug” and went on to say, “And drugs aren’t good for you if you use a lot of them,” he said, adding, “Yeah, that girl is like crack to me. “
Simpson later confirmed that she was offended by the backhanded compliment and that it was the final straw that ended their relationship.
Her song, “Heart Warfare,” was thought to be about Simpson, but Mayer disputes that claim: “That woman would never use heartbreak warfare. She was the most outgoing, sweet and kind person.
2. He gets to talk about his relationships in public.
Mayer has spoken about several of his ex-girlfriends in interviews on several occasions. He has no problem sharing intimate or unflattering details about his relationship.
In the same interview where he talked about his sex life with Jessica Simpson, he then discussed the reasons for his breakup with Jennifer Aniston.
There was a rumor that Aniston dumped him because of his excessive tweeting, but he denied this in his response while sending shade in his direction.
Mayer began: “There was a rumor that I got dumped for tweeting too much,” he said. “It wasn’t that, but it was a big difference.”
He continued, “Most of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it dates back to 1998. She saw my involvement in tech as a courtesy distraction.
Aniston took the comments in stride, saying she still thinks Mayer is “a wonderful guy.”
She explained, “He must have said he broke up with me. And especially because it’s me. I’m not just a girl he’s dating.
3. He’s not going to commit.
Mayer is known for having relationships but is certainly not known for having lasting relationships!
The lothario seems to have a hard time letting go of the single life, so if you’re dating him, don’t expect it to be too long.
Mayer would be hard to date and he knows it. In response to a fan asking him how he was still single on Instagram, he once replied, “Google me.”
Mayer seems to favor relationships that quickly become deep and intimate. Once that’s over, he quickly moves on to his next conquest.
4. He wants you to keep the relationship private.
Despite Mayer’s track record of discussing his relationships in interviews, he wants the women he dates to keep quiet about their situation with him.
In 2009, he was dating Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie, who was busted by YoungHollywood.com and asked about her month-long relationship with Mayer.
His comments did not seem offensive. She gushed: “I love his personality…he’s funny…He can be, like, a jerk.”
Her brief interaction with the press seemed innocent enough, but Mayer didn’t like the fact that she was talking about him and hasn’t spoken to him since.
5. He expects respect, even if he hurt you.
Mayer has expressed frustration with Taylor Swift’s choice to evoke their relationship in her music.
But the singer may be oblivious to the relationship’s impact on the women he’s with. This is certainly the case with his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
The couple dated in 2009 when she was just 19 and Mayer was 32. When the relationship ended, Swift wrote the song “Dear John” about her experience with him.
Mayer was caught off guard and told Rolling Stone in 2012, “I never got an email. I never received a phone call. I was really taken aback, and it really humiliated me at a time when I was already in disguise.
6. PDA is a must.
Mayer has never been shy about publicly showing his affection. Back when he was dating Cameron Diaz, they were reportedly “on top of each other” in New York.

Although he said some mean words after their breakup, Mayer had no problem kissing, hugging and massaging Aniston in front of the cameras during another outing in New York in 2008.
Most notably, during Mayer’s longest relationship with Katy Perry, they wrote songs about each other and appeared in each other’s music videos.
Perry and Mayer were also very active at a Saturday Night Live after-party in 2013. The couple reportedly kissed and made eye contact all night long.
7. Age is just a number.
Trying to guess Mayer’s type can be a daunting task. But one thing is for sure, when it comes to age, he doesn’t discriminate.
After the breakup, he made a bad dig at Aniston’s age, but during the relationship, he had no problem with her being eight years older than him.
Then there was Diaz, who was five years her senior. The age difference seemed unimportant, and it didn’t stop them from enjoying each other’s company.
Perhaps the most shocking age difference among Mayer’s pals was the 13-year gap between him and Swift, which she spoke about after they split.
