The 'Fireflies' hitmaker has had a crush on the country superstar ever since Taylor wrote the track 'Enchanted' - which was included on her 2010 LP 'Speak Now' - about him.
Now Taylor has split from her boyfriend Conor Kennedy, Adam is hoping the two can go out.
He told Blunt Talking: ''She's got a lot of people at her doorstep. I just try and stay off the radar. I don't wanna force anything, but I'm around.''
The 26-year-old musician is still ''honoured'' that Taylor penned a track about him for her multi-platinum selling third album because the song showed him that he was an important person in her life.
He said: ''It's cool to know that an artist such as Taylor, who is very open about the fact that she writes songs to deal with her life and to be a part of that is a very cool thing. It's a very sweet song. I'm very honoured.''
Although he is popular with the ladies since becoming a pop star, Adam - who collaborated on 'Good Time' with Carly Rae Jepsen - Adam admits he couldn't find a date for his high school prom.
He said: ''I definitely couldn't get a date for the prom both years in high school. I guess I didn't really go around trying too hard. I was sort of weighing my options between the girls I was interested in that I was sure weren't interested in me, and those who I maybe could have gone out with and I was like, 'Maybe I'll stay at home and make music.' ''
