Back in late October when news hit that both were back on the market, the insider divulged that unlike some of Taylor's exes, there were "no hard feelings" it was just "distance" that caused the wedge.
Afterall, Conor is a high school student and Taylor is one of the most successful recording artists of all time on a promotional tour for her hit album, Red.

Former "Bachelor" star Ben Flajnik regrets proposing to former fiancée Courtney Robertson and not heeding the warnings of her rivals on the show.
He tells Life & Style magazine, "I should apologize to all those women and say, 'Sorry I didn’t see it'. I really have lost all respect for this person that I thought I knew and that I was in love with at one point."
He admits, "I wanted to see it through on my own. I knew if it was going to work or not. It just took a little bit longer ... She just had me fooled. I talk to my friends all the time and they're like, 'Maybe she was just really good at it. She got all of us fooled, too, Ben. You weren’t the only one.' You know, hindsight is 20/20." The couple briefly broke up shortly after filming ended, but decided to give it another try before ending their engagement in October.
