Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift have been spotted together again, prompting many to wonder if the two are dating. Harris and the 'Style' singer attended a Kenny Chesney concert together in Nashville on Thursday night, and Calvin Harris was among those cheering loudly when Taylor Swift was invited up on stage to sing with the country star.

On Wednesday, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris were spotted together (and wearing matching outfits no less) at a Whole Foods store. Taylor attended one of Calvin's concerts earlier in March in Las Vegas. It was after that concert that Calvin Harris told Capital FM that she "looks lovely" but is not his "type."

Either Taylor Swift turned out to be his type or Calvin Harris changed what he perceives his "type" to be, because it's pretty clear these two have been spending quite a bit of time together.

It was only a little over a month ago when Calvin Harris and model Aarika Wolf parted ways. And Taylor Swift hasn't dated anyone since that fateful New Years Eve split from One Direction's Harry Styles back in 2013. In the past, however, she had a string of bad romances, including pairings with Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner, and John Mayer.

Last year while promoting her album 1989, Taylor Swift told E! News she hadn't given up on dating, but was being "very protective" of her happiness.

"I found a place in my life that feels really great and I'm not willing to compromise that for just anyone, and so, you can paraphrase that all you want into something very extreme, but they make what I say extreme no matter what I say. I'm really happy about the fact that being single doesn't feel like being alone," the 'Blank Space' singer said. "I have love in my life, I just don't have a relationship, and that feels really natural right now."

"I'm not going to compromise the happiness and independence that I've found for just anybody. The idea of a date gives me a partial panic attack!" she added. "It includes 40 paparazzi cameras shooting through windows at us, and that's not relaxing or alluring for me. That makes me want to crawl under the couch and hide! But I'm fine! I have two cats. That's all I need."

"It would take an astonishing human for me to even consider getting back into a relationship. It would take something really, really, really, really different—a kind of a one-in-a-million person for me to face all that. I don't have any kid of idea who I'd want to be with, because I don't have any pieces missing from my life right now. I'm not looking for anything to complete," Taylor Swift said. "I think that's a nice place to be."

Do you think Calvin Harris--known best for hits including 'Feel So Close,' might be that one-in-a-million person for Taylor Swift?

It would no doubt shock her fans to see her settle down into a good relationship.
