Does Taylor Swift have a new, younger guy? The 22-year-old singer/songwriter spent her Fourth of July holiday on the beach in Massachusetts with 18-year-old Patrick Schwarzenegger, according to TMZ. The website reported that Swift and the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver were spotted strolling along the beach and hanging out with members of the Kennedy clan at the family's compound in Hyannis Port. "Had such an amazing day," tweeted Patrick, who now calls himself Patrick Shriver on Twitter. "Best 4th of July I could ask for. Hope everyone had a great day!"

This isn't the first time Swift has kicked back with the Kennedys. In January, the "Mean" singer walked the red carpet with 23 members of the family for the premiere of the HBO documentary "Ethel" at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The film focuses Patrick's great-aunt Ethel Skakel Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy's widow, and is directed by her daughter, Rory Kennedy. Swift revealed to Vogue earlier this year that she greatly admired Ethel, 84. "You look back at the pictures of her and Bobby, they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody," Swift told the magazine. She also explained how she struck up a friendship with the matriarch. "I had read up on Robert F. Kennedy and his wife, and I asked Rory if it would ever be possible for me to meet her mother. She said, 'Here's her number.' Ethel was kind enough to have lunch and spend a few hours talking with me, and ever since then I've been so inspired by how full of life she is and the way she tells her story."

Sounds like Swift's already in good with the family! Now, Swift and Schwarzenegger's coupledom depends on whether she gets that lovin' feeling when she's with him. "When I picture the person I want to end up with, I don't think about what their career is, or what they look like. I picture the feeling I get when I'm with them," Swift, whose exes include Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, and Joe Jonas, told InStyle last year. "There are no rules when it comes to love. I just try to let love surprise me because you never know who you're going to fall in love with."
