Taylor Swift is no stranger to age-gap dating, although she isn’t always the younger one in the May-December relationship. At 23, Swift’s dating history is all over the map. She’s been with younger guys, like 19–year-old One Direction singer Harry Styles and 19-year-old Kennedy heir, Conor Kennedy. But Swift has also been romantically linked to several older men, including 32-year-old Jake Gyllenhaal and 36-year-old singer John Mayer.
Swift is now rumored to be dating a new older man—37-year-old Alexander Skarsgård, best known for playing a vampire on the HBO series True Blood. Swift and Skarsgård are currently filming their upcoming sci-fi movie, The Giver, but according to sources, things are heating up off-set between them. The rumored celebrity couple was reportedly spotted enjoying several romantic dinners together before heading to Cape Town to start shooting the movie.
Although this is just a dating rumor, and there’s a good chance there’s no truth to it, it might not be such a bad thing if Swift and Skarsgård really were dating. She’s had a hard time finding the right person to settle down with, and Skarsgård just seems like the kind of guy who can maybe fill that void for her.
Plus, we know that age-gap dating isn’t a problem for Swift—she’s more concerned with how well she can connect with him. At least that’s what she learned when she asked her friend, Ed Sheeran, for dating advice. “He says there are different kinds of love: There’s physical attraction, mental attraction, and emotional attraction; there’s also comfort and obsession,” said Swift. “You need to have all of those things in one person. You have to mentally respect them, be physically attracted, and have a comfort level.”
What do you think: Would Taylor Swift and Alexander Skarsgård make a good celebrity couple?
