Kelce, 33, who has reportedly been 'hanging out' with the pop sensation, also 33, opened up on dating during an appearance on Kristin Cavallari's Let's Be Honest podcast.
The Chiefs star revealed what would and wouldn't make sparks fly in a relationship for him.
The two-time Super Bowl winner said 'high maintenance' would have him running for a getaway car.
'High maintenance, I'm out the door,' he said. 'If you're arrogant, snooty or just higher or above people, that's the biggest turn-off for me.'

Kelce added that he would be enchanted by 'some sort of sweetness' in a partner, explaining that his mom, Donna, is 'kind-hearted.'
The eight-time pro bowler added that he's guarded fortress when entering into a relationship.
He said that he would look to take things slow, explaining: 'To really dive into a relationship with somebody I feel like it's going to take at least, I don't know, it's going to take some time.
'It's not going to be immediate because, the stuff I've been through, just in my past, I feel like you really gotta know somebody to take that step and really be committed and be in full-throttle. I can't just meet somebody and just automatically think that forever is just a day away … I think it takes quite a bit of time for somebody to really get to know somebody and really get to find that affection and love for them.'
Kelce, who previously dated influencer and broadcaster Kayla Nicole, was first linked to Swift earlier this month.
They were reported to have been hanging out when the Midnights hit-maker visited New York a few weeks ago, the Messenger reported last week.
Kelce, who made his season debut Sunday, scoring a touchdown in the Chiefs' 17-9 win over the Jaguars, first tried to link up with Swift when her Eras tour came to Kansas City in the summer.
He revealed on his New Heights podcast with brother and Eagles center Jason that he attempted to give the songstress a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.
'So, I was a little butthurt that I didn't get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her,' Kelce said.

'She doesn't meet anybody — or at least she didn't want to meet me. So, I took it personal.'
Swift, who won nine awards at the VMAs, split from actor Joe Alwyn in April after six years together.
Meanwhile, Barstool Sports CEO David Portnoy made headlines for commenting on Swift's rumored new relationship with Kelce, as he said that the NFL star 'wouldn't be my first choice' to date if he were the pop superstar.
Rob Gronkowski - a four-time Super Bowl champion - also commented on rumors of Kelce and Swift dating, as he said that America's potentially newest power couple would be the 'number one Ken and Barbie in the NFL'.
