Yes, so basically he just described Harry Styles.
Which is convenient, seeing as they are dating.
Speaking to The Sun, Ed said that Taylor doesn't go for gingers, rather she likes a tall, dark kind of guy.
Which meant that Ed reckoned he never had a chance, despite them getting along great when they met.
Ed says: "We had great fun when we met, but I don't think I'm Taylor's type."
"If you look at all the dudes she's dated, they're all tall, brown hair, brown eyes, very attractive and all the girls scream for them."
"I'm chubby, ginger with blue eyes," Ed added.
As with all good celebs, Ed and Taylor were previously linked while they were working together on Taylor's album Red.
Perhaps she even named the album after him, we did ponder.
However, we soon realised that Taylor had eyes for Ed's mate Harry Styles instead.
Ed and Harry became mates while Ed helped One Direction write some tracks on their album.
