Taylor Swift may already have another victim ... er, boyfriend.

Swift was seen out with British singer Tom Odell on Thursday night in London, according to E! News.

Apparently, the pair had drinks at the Florists Arms pub in Bethnal Green, East London, then went to the members-only Groucho Club in Soho, according to the Mirror.

Odell is a 22-year-old singer-songwriter known for writing penning songs inspired by heartbreak, notes the Mirror. One of his most popular hits is "Another Love," about someone he fell for while in school.

Oh God ... make it stop, already.

On Wednesday, he scooped up the Critics' Choice Award at the 2013 Brit Awards, where Swift performed "I Knew You Were Trouble" while recent ex-boyfriend Harry Styles of One Direction watched from the audience.

According to the Huffington Post, the two connected last month when Swift got flirty with Odell on Twitter. The 23-year-old singer gushed about his talent and he replied with "xx" (kisses).

Oh God ... please, please make it stop.

The British singer was asked about the flirtatious tweets with Swift during an interview with Spinner this week.

"Maybe she is," he responded, when asked if he thought she was flirting. "Quite nice. She's a pretty girl. Perhaps. I don't know. I've never met her before, so it's strange, flirting with her. But if she is, then cool. I should have flirted more back, maybe."

Perhaps you two should start writing songs about each other right now, and get it over with.

He and Swift were apparently introduced backstage at the Brit Awards.

Odell, who covered Swift's "Trouble" during a recent BBC appearance, is also a fan of her work. "Taylor Swift is a really intriguing character in music in that she's one of the biggest pop stars in the world and yet I think her songs are brilliant, I really do," he told Spinner. "I think she writes really dark lyrics ... I think she's a lot more real than people think she is."

Please, please, PLEASE?
