Jake Gyllenhaal flirted with Camilla Belle — the same girl Joe Jonas dumped Taylor Swift for! How do you handle such a horrible situation?

Revenge is a dish best served cold, and Jake Gyllenhaal is being downright icy if there’s truth to his latest reported conquest. The hunky Love and Other Drugs star apparently indulged in some recent heavy flirting with Camilla Belle, the arch-nemesis of ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. Betrayal! How should Taylor have reacted after hearing about such an obvious betrayal?

With his breakup from Taylor still fresh in mind, Jake reportedly made the cruelest decision possible in chatting up Camilla at a Jan. 15 party. If you’ll remember right, Camilla is also the girl Taylor’s ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas dumped her for and the inspiration behind her song “Better Than Revenge.”

Unfortunately, there’s literally nothing Taylor can do to improve the situation. She can’t tell Jake how much his betrayal hurts her, and she can’t confront Camilla. The only thing to do is hold her head up high and bravely pretend it’s not affecting her — which is exactly what she’s doing.

If anyone asks her how she feels about the two, the best — and easiest thing to say — would simply be: “I think they’re a good fit.” Don’t say it bitterly or with heavy sarcasm — keep it vague and ambiguous, leaving others wondering how your’e really feeling.

This isn’t a great situation to find yourself in, but at least you’ll be secure in the knowledge that your breakup WAS the right thing for you in the end. Any man that would flirt with your arch-enemy isn’t a man you want to be dating!
