Taylor Swift doesn’t need to look for love any longer — her BFF, Ed Sheeran, has found her future boyfriend, and it’s only a matter of time before she realizes that he’s living in the same building as she is.
Ed Sheeran shared his rom-com fantasy for Taylor Swift during a recent interview with Event Magazine. According to NOW Magazine, the “Thinking Out Loud” singer is convinced that Swift will eventually fall for fellow tenant Orlando Bloom.
“He’s lovely, and they live in the same building … the magic might present itself eventually.”
Swift does like guys with wavy hair and British accents, so Bloom already has two things going for him. Taylor also might want to heed Ed’s words because he has successfully played matchmaker before — Sheeran introduced Friends star Courteney Cox to Snow Patrol band member Johnny McDaid, and now his two pals are engaged.
So far 37-year-old Orlando Bloom and 25-year-old Taylor Swift have refused to fulfill Ed Sheeran’s prophecy, which he first hinted at a few months ago. During a May interview with Us Weekly, Ed admitted that he’s a Taylando shipper, but there still have been no hints that the Lord of the Rings star and the “Shake It Off” singer are interested in one another. Maybe Ed just really wants to hear Taylor mention elves and arrows in her next batch of breakup tunes (singing about Mordor and Gollum worked for Led Zeppelin).
Taylor could be hesitant to pursue Orlando because he was spotted with her friend, Selena Gomez, back in October. However, Bloom later told TMZ that he and Justin Bieber’s ex weren’t an item — they were just in the same airport because they were attending the We Day youth conference together.
Speaking of the Biebs, perhaps Bloom and Swift could bond over their mutual dislike of Selena’s on-again, off-again boyfriend. Orlando Bloom was caught on camera throwing a punch at Justin Bieber back in June, and Taylor Swift was also recorded using a body part to express her feelings about Justin — surely you can’t forget that time she stuck her tongue out after witnessing a Jelena kiss.
If Orlando Bloom is interested in letting Ed Sheeran set him up with Taylor Swift, he can learn everything he needs to know about dating the singer from her Twitter page.
For one thing, he’ll have to hang out with prissy pusses that are totally jelly of his hands.
My cats wish they had thumbs so bad. I see them staring at mine like all jealous. http://t.co/hzGPRx8LJF

He has to be okay with being covered in glitter.
My dad just gave me ten lint rollers for Christmas, not for lint but ‘because you always have glitter all over you’. Great start, Swifts.

He has to be understanding when Taylor dedicates some of her limited free time to hanging out with her superhero friends.

He must accept the fact that Swift can’t resist tweet-flirting with guys in bands.
@Michael5SOS if I’m hearing you correctly, what you’re saying is that you’d like to be twitter BFFs. I accept your implied request.

And he can’t mind that one of Taylor Swift’s BFFs is a Victoria’s Secret model (Karlie Kloss will serve as a constant reminder that he used to be married to one).

So what do you think: Would Taylor Swift and Orlando Bloom make a cute couple?
