Taylor Swift Zac Efron

The adorable co-stars of the upcoming film, ‘The Lorax’, had a flirty dinner date Jan. 6 in LA and there’s excellent reasons why they’d make a great couple!

Taylor Swift has been burned in love far too many times in her 22 years. In fact, she revealed in the new issue of Vogue magazine that her next album is inspired by “crash and burn heartbreak” and we’re betting that it was about her last year’s love, Jake Gyllenhal, who dumped her just before Christmas 2010.

Before that, she endured heartache from Joe Jonas, who split with her unceremoniously over the phone, and from John Mayer, who she slammed in her song, Dear John.

But Zac Efron, 24,could be the perfect antidote to Taylor’s lovelorn track record. Now here’s why!

#1: He Likes Longterm Relationships and He Knows How to Handle One: Zac dated his High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens for five  years, and for all that time had a sterling reputation as a loving , devoted boyfriend. That means he knows what it’s like to be committed. He enjoyed being in a long romance and he’s proven he can weather the ups and downs that every couple has in longterm romance- something Taylor needs to have in a man.

#2: Zac Efron Was Sorry That He broke Up With Vanessa Hudgens: Even though the split was Zac’s idea — he thought he needed to sow his wild past — he came to regret it, a source told Hollywoodlife.com. He missed Vanessa and their relationship, but by the time he learned that playing the field wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, Vanessa had moved on. This means that he’s ripe for a new real relationship, not a fling and that’s exactly what Taylor needs now.

#3: Taylor and Zac Have A Movie, Music and More in Common: The pair will be spending lots of time together promoting The Lorax , in which they play girlfriend and boyfriend. It opens March 2. Besides that, they both have reputations as sweet, down-to-earth people and of course, they are BOTH highly musical. That means they can understand and appreciate each other’s talents. Zac can certainly understand what it is to be a musical artist like Taylor — hey, they can even duet together… in many ways.

#4: Both Taylor and Zac are Ambitious and  Career-Focused and Both Have Been Teen Stars: Again, since they’ve both been working successfully and  been in the spotlight for many years, they can understand each other’s backgrounds and experiences. Neither will be intimidated by the other or feel like one is at a different level career-wise. If anything, they probably share similar fears and anxieties about making the right next step. Taylor admitted in her Vogue interview that she’s always worrying about what’s next no matter how successful she is in the present. Zac is still working on finding his footing and having a big hit after his High School Musical success. These are things they can talk about and support each other on.

#5: Zac Efron Isn’t Obssessed with Privacy or Hiding From His Fans: That’s good because it  would drive Taylor wild. ” I can’t deal with someone who’s obsessed with privacy. People kind of care if there are two famous people dating . But no one cares that much. If you care about privacy to the point where we need to dig a tunnel under this restaurant so that we can leave? I can’t do that,” she told Vogue. Well, good news. Zac has never been one to hide from the paparrazi and he is sweet and appreciative to his fans — something about which Taylor is religious. So unlike Jake Gyllenhal, who Taylor was probably digging at with her comment, she’d be in sync with Zac, on this key point as well.

So there you have it, Hollywoodlifers — why I think this pair  could be perfect. Just need to throw in some sexual chemistry and voila! — a hot new couple. What do YOU think? Could this pair have it? tell me now and VOTE!
