Does Taylor Swift have a new beau? Rumors reveal that the singer has moved on to an older man and has sunk her fangs into True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård!

Is Taylor Swift's new man Alexander Skarsgard

If the recent rumors are true, then Taylor Swift would like to sink her fangs into True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård.

We see the appeal, the 37-year-old Swedish actor is full of charm, and the pair have reportedly been spotted out on several romantic dates together in Los Angeles.

However, recent reports claim that the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer and her latest beau have completely fallen for each other while in South African on the set of The Giver — a film adaptation of Lois Lowry's 1993 dystopian children's novel.

A source revealed to The Sun newspaper, "Before they left for Cape Town they had a couple of dinners in LA."

"He's much older than the guys Taylor has dated in the past year, but maybe that's where she's going wrong."

Swift is known to fall fast and, if the news is correct this would be a very interesting match as the source suggests, perhaps the age gap will reflect the maturity that the 23-year-old beauty needs in a relationship.

We hope that Taylor Swift will learn from her previous mistakes in the love department, and it appears that she may have received some very helpful hints from her best guy friend, Ed Sheeran.

The "Drunk" hitmaker is known to be a genuine and nice guy and he is trying to steer Swifty in the right direction, not One Direction.

Sheeran has been offering his advice on love and altering his friend's perspective on happiness and it appears that Swift may be taking his advice.

The "22" singer revealed to the November issue of InStyle magazine, "He [Sheeran] says there are different kinds of love: There's physical attraction, mental attraction and emotional attraction; there's also comfort and obsession."

"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."

"You're obsessed with them, yet you also know they're going to stay. I've never had that in one person."

If the rumors are true, Swift is one very lucky lady!
