Meet Ed Sheeran. For those of you who aren't familiar with him, he's a very talented singer-songwriter, and Taylor Swift's good friend.  Or is it MORE than just friends?

Ed was recently spotted in the wee hours of the morning leaving the hotel where Taylor was staying. When Ed left the hotel, he got into the car that Taylor had used earlier in the day and was driven away.

One source says that Taylor and Ed "briefly dated last spring. He thinks she is really cute and they have a great chemistry together."

So, will Ed be okay being the next subject of a Taylor Swift song? Maybe he will help her write it!
