Taylor Swift and "Glee" actor Chord Overstreet sparked relationship rumors after the two were spotted attending a hockey game in Los Angeles, but Overstreeet has laughed off such rumors before, entertainment site JustJared.com reports.
"The thing is, I have tons of friends I hang out with and if you get your picture taken with anyone, all of a sudden you're dating," Overstreet told Vman magazine earlier in the month. "I'm currently single."
The 21-year-old country and pop singer and Overstreet, who is 22 and plays glee club member and football player Sam Evans on the FOX musical comedy series, spoke on the phone on Wednesday, attended an L.A. Kings game on Thursday and later shared a meal, Us Weekly reported.
Overstreet did give some insight into what he is looking for in a girlfriend though, insisting she should be Southern and into country music, which bodes well for the country singer, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
"[I like] a girl who's funny, sweet, likes to laugh, and is a good girl," Overstreet said. "She needs to have somewhat of a taste for country music. And she has to be from the South. She doesn't have to be, but there's nothing like Southern food."
Swift has in the past year been linked by the press to various men in the entertainment industry, including Jake Gyllenhaal, who was pictured with her around November, and fellow musician John Mayer. "Glee" actor Cory Monteith was named as one of her love interests in 2010 as well, although he denied they were involved romantically.
