Unfortunately for Taylor Swift, her luck in the romance department continues to be dismal. The NY Daily News reported on Wednesday, Jan. 1, that the singer scared off actor Douglas Booth after only a few dates.
Taylor was in hot pursuit of Douglas, the 21-year-old actor who stars opposite Hailee Steinfeld in "Romeo and Juliet," at a party at the West Hollywood Soho House in November. According to someone who was there, Taylor didn't give up until she got what she wanted.
“She would get a drink and then approach him; she would chat with [actress] Hailee Steinfeld and then re-approach him; she was even trying to chat him up near the flowers on display. It was all very funny for those of us watching," said the witness.
Her persistence paid off as they went on a few dates in London. It seems that it was her continued persistence on a relationship, however, that ruined things between them.
"Doug is a young guy and is enjoying the single life. He was quite taken aback about how keen Taylor was. She has been in touch with him, but he just wants to be friends," said a friend of his.
If Taylor Swift really did get rejected by Douglas Booth, she isn't letting that get her down. She celebrated the arrival of 2014 by partying with friends, including actress Sarah Hyland from "Modern Family." On Tuesday, Dec. 31, she posted a photo of the two of them at the party, with the caption, "RINGING IN 2014," on Instagram.
The singer has dated a string of famous men, including Joe Jonas, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal. Most recently, she had a failed romance with One Direction's Harry Styles.
Hopefully, for his sake, Douglas doesn't find himself the subject of Taylor's next big hit.
Is there anyone whom you think would be a good match for Taylor?
