Does Taylor Swift need help in the dating department or what?

Maybe, maybe not. Sure, she has terrible luck with men, but then she writes a hit song every time one of the pisses her off. Her heart may be in pieces now that she's apparently broken up with Conor Kennedy, but her bank account is seriously full.
Still, I do have some ideas for who might make a good next boyfriend for the 22-year-old singer of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"...and my top pick will likely surprise you.
There are a few famous guys out there who might make decent matches for Swift. For one, I'd like to see her date older, instead of whisking another teenager away from his Xbox.
But just to be safe, I found some matchmakers who know really what they're talking about.
"My first pick is [tennis star] Rafael Nadal," says Sherri Murphy of Elite Connections. "He's tall dark and handsome, sweet and down-to-earth and travels a lot. He can understand her lifestyle but is not a singer. He's also close to his family."
"Chace Crawford [is] Christian and went to a Christian high school," Murphy suggests. "So that might make him a good contender, as I think she's somewhat religious."
Whatever Swift does, she needs to move forward.
"As we know, Taylor has dated John Mayer. She needs to stay away from the player playboy type and find a guy that doesn't have a different girl every other month!"
In fact, says Michele Chalfant of Open Hearts Matchmaking, maybe Swift should stay away from stars altogether.
"I would like to see her with someone a little bit older than her, and someone outside the entertainment world--maybe in the business world," she tells me. "She's been dating people in the spotlight and that's just stress for her everywhere you look.
"Julia Roberts is a great example. Her husband [Danny Moder] is in the film business but isn't a celebrity. And you don't see them in the tabloids."
And if you ask me—and you have—I agreed with Chalfant.
