In news we should have predicted, Taylor Swift is possibly dating Douglas Booth. Why should we have known this? Because Booth plays Romeo in the latest big screen adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, and it's unthinkable that Taylor Swift could watch an actor portray Romeo without putting him next on her ever-expanding list.

While they may not be officially dating, they're definitely hanging out. People magazine reported the two "hired the back room [of a London restaurant] and were in there alone," which, to us, sounds very much like a date. Ideally, they are a couple and the portmanteau "Swiftbooth" will become a thing.  

At 21 years of age, Booth is the oldest guy Swift's dated in some time. Her previous two beaus—One Direction's Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy—were both teenagers when the Grammy-nabbing singer-songwriter started seeing them. So at least Swift and Booth grew up watching the same incarnation of Power Rangers.

In related news, Booth's upcoming film is called Geography of the Heart, a phrase Taylor is almost assuredly pissed she didn't come up with herself.
