In fact, we couldn't help but notice that a surprising number of Mayer's lady loves are newly single, as if the singer-songwriter were lurking around the corner, waiting to strum "Your Body is a Wonderland" at the ready to cure them of their breakup blues.

We might be on to something. In November 2010, a friend of Mayer's told The Huffington Post's Rob Shuter that "there is something about newly-divorced ladies that drives him nuts."
