Harry Styles, Jacob Skelton

Attention, Taylor Swift! Thing didn't work out with Harry Styles, but you might have a shot with his doppelgänger.

We kid, we kid, because the One Direction boy-bander's uncanny look-alike, Jacob Skelton, is just 15 years old.

But the floppy-haired English schoolboy is getting lots of love from the ladies due to his resemblance to Harry. It was a friend's mom who first pointed out that Jacob looked a great deal like Harry, and from there, things have taken off.

"People always ask for pictures with me on the street, and on Twitter I've got a lot marriage proposals." Jacob said recently on Daybreak. In fact, he gets mobbed by total strangers when he goes out.

Jacob insists he didn't purposefully style his coif to match Harry's famous hair. "My hair's been like this since I was about 10," he said.

His father hopes the teen can make a career out of his resemblance to Harry, but points out he needs to finish school first.

But girls, there's a downfall. When Jacob was asked whether he could sing well, he sheepishly answered, "No."

Somewhere, Harry Styles is breathing a sigh of relief.
