Why Taylor Swift & Conor Kennedy’s Romance Has Taken Off

The country starlet was getting rather cozy with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s son Conor on July 27. The two were said to be very ‘touchy-feely’ — read on for all the latest on this hot romance and EXCLUSIVE details!

Has Taylor Swift, 22, found love with a Kennedy? The singer reportedly rented a small house near the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Mass on July 27 and took a walk on the beach hand-in-hand with Conor Kennedy, 18. “She likes him because he is genuinely a fun and nice guy that doesn’t have all the baggage of being a celebrity but knows how to live like one and be in those circles,” a source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. 

The New York Post says that Taylor arrived around 5pm on July 27 and the couple was later spotted playing on a trampoline. After the fun evening, they made things more romantic as they walked to a house party and then held hands on the beach! But get this, the next morning they went sailing and then headed to church together!

Reports surfaced that Taylor was dating Patrick Schwarzenegger on July 4 when she was spotted in Massachusetts but Patrick was actually the matchmaker!

“Patrick was the one who hooked up Conor and Taylor. He obviously doesn’t need her money so there is never a weird issue on that. She has known the family for a while and as much celebrity as she brings to the situation, it’s not an issue whatsoever because the Kennedy’s on the Cape are what celebrity is all about,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“The relationship is in the start of things and everything seems to be going very well. They are taking things as they come and having tons of fun doing it. They are very comfortable,” our source confirms.

Something very interesting to point out is that Conor is the same age as Justin Bieber! Maybe Taylor thinks it’s okay to date a younger man because her bestie Selena Gomez, 20, is dating the Biebs, 18! But Taylor is four years older than Conor — do you think will be a problem?

First, did any of you take spelling or english in school? Secondly, I really don’t appreciate some of you coming off with your criticism of T/C. Many of my friends hooked up in high school, got married at 18 and are still together so what is the big deal with Tay & Connor. No one even knew who he was until hestarted dating Tay. I think their relationship just happened and I hope they can keep it together through this very stressful period of being apart during such a new relationship. This is the test! I can see the frustration but I don’t think Tay is ready to give up – I think they have something great between them and I hope they can get through this being apart – it will make them stronger. Good luck to them both. They make a great couple!

Everybody can seriously just grow up & stop making stupid comments about Tay & Conor. Saying she hasn’t grown up or matured cuz she’s dating an 18 year old guy is absolutely pathetic. And most people saying this are adults, which means y’all must not know much about love & you’re probably single or in bad relationships yourself & just jealous that Tay is actually happy with him. People who have experienced true love no that love has no limits, no certain look, & certainly not a certain age. Also, people making fun of him cuz he’s a Kennedy is also pathetic. Just cuz you didn’t like the president, doesn’t give you a right to judge Conor the same way. He has nothing to do with all that. I am a 113% dedicated Swifty & there are millions other Swifties out there who only care about Tay’s happiness. And let me tell you, she looks pretty darn happy with Conor so stop judging! It’s absolutely pathetic! Would you tell your daughter that she couldn’t be with someone cuz you don’t like the guys age, looks, or anything else? Just think about that…

grow up. first off, do some research- kennedy men have a long history with women and mistresses, and it wasn’t just the ex-president. the entire family is raised thinking a certain set of rules apply to marriages, and cheating is just part of the game. shriver accepted arnie’s until it got completely humiliatingly out of control, and that’s just one of many examples. but, yah, the kid is just 18. maybe he’s different, and nobody really cares who “tay” (are you really that close to her? who calls her that?) is dating. we all just find it interesting b/c we never would’ve dated a barely 18 year old when we were about to turn 23. taylor is interesting b/c she’s in this weird childish bubble and doesn’t want to grow up. i’ve actually only known one or two other people in my life like that, so it’s notable, and makes me want to comment. in a decade when you turn 23, you might understand.

Seriously?! You need to STFU! You think I’m 13? Wow…this just proves that you think you know everything when you obviously don’t & just jump to conclusions. For your information, TAY’s fans, the most dedicated ones called SWIFTIES call Taylor, TAY all the time. It’s too bad you’re not smart enough to know that. And Taylor hasn’t grown up?! Who the hell do you think you are? What’s wrong? You can’t get a guy no matter how old he is & you’re jealous? Well get over it. You’ve never been in love & obviously haven’t found anyone to love you…oops I just juped to conclusions, but you think that’s ok so I will too. Judging Conor based on his family is absolutely PATHETIC! Just cuz a person comes from a particular background doesn’t give you the right to judge them by how their family is. You don’t know him & you sure as hell don’t know Tay at all. So stop judging them…get over yourself.

pixie swifty, dear, i apologize for assuming you were 13 just because that’s how old you sound through your writing. as i said before, which you apparently missed in your childish blind rage, i could care less who taylor dates, and i acknowledged conor could be different than the string of male role models prominent in his family. but, i still think it’s odd that a nearly 23 year old woman who has traveled the world is interested in a boy who just left 17 behind a couple of weeks ago. as you can see from plenty of other commenters, many adults have a similar viewpoint. but i wouldn’t expect a teenage “swiftie” to understand that, so i don’t fault you for naivity and ignorance.

I wonder if Taylor Swift knows about the Kennedy curse. She can write a song about it if she breaks up with Conor Kennedy.

So let’s see: She’s dating an 18yr . old like Selena. Both of these girls need to grow up and mature and they never will if they keep dating 18yr. old little boys, who haven’t grown up themselves yet — perfect matches.

i used to think it weird re bieber and selena, but they have a lot in common (raised by young single moms, right?)- so somehow it seems less weird. taylor has always wanted to remain a teenager, so it’s no big surprise that she’s dating one. i don’t disagree with you- i’d NEVER have dated an 18 year old, even when i was 18! definitely not when i was 22! but, you know, taylor wants to be a child… and, if she wants to live in a fantasy world with unicorns and rainbows, becoming a kennedy wife is the perfect solution. lord knows those those women do not want to accept the reality their husbands give them.

I agree, remember her words in her song “you be the prince and I’ll be the princess?” She is trying to live her Camelot dream. I read where is step-mom is so happy about this.She has forbid Taylor to spend the night in the house OR swim in the pool which is why she had rent a small house on the compound.

a 22 yo woman having any interest in an 18 yo boy would normally be weird, but with taylor, it makes sense. she is very childish and one of those girls that is begrudgingly growing up. maybe these two will get married. she’s the perfect trophy wife to fit in the kennedy scheme, and i’m sure he already knows to just get the real action on the side like the rest of the kennedy men… so… they could be perfect together.

she would have to get a boob job and gain a little curves to fit the image that women that Kennedy’s mess with. And why does she dress so dowdy when out and about!

Their age difference isn’t that big. Liam Payne from One Direction is 18 and his girlfriend is 24. They have a 6 year age gap and are fine. As long as Taylor is happy it’s fine. She needs to finally have a nice happy relationship again. I think they look cute together.

Figures the media would find ONE thing about their relationship. Hey! Rob was four years older than Kristen!
Anyway, it’s cool they seem happy. Maybe she might write a song about him.

My mom and dad are eleven years apart, and happily married for almost sixteen years. There’s no problem with dating somebody only four years younger than you.

and i would bet my last $100 that your dad is older than your mom, and not vice versa. it takes awhile for most men to catch up with female’s emotional development (they’re ALWAYS fighting distractions from their nether regions), so it’s not uncommon for the man to be older. it is uncommon for a nearly 23 year old woman who has traveled the world to be interested in a boy who is just turning 18. (she may have actually been with him when he was 17, for all we know.) so, it’s interesting, for sure. i don’t care, and good for them if they’re happy, but it’s just another weird thing about taylor IMO. i’m sure he’s not looking to get married seconds after his 18th birthday anyway, so this isn’t likely to be a long-lived story.

She hasn’t been dating since Jake G, in 2010. Age is just a number, it doesn’t matter!

Unlike some of the other recent Taylor romance rumors, Taylor dating Conor is 100% true! They’re officially together now.

it’s actually about 5 years difference. it’s not “bad” but most women that age are much more mature than their male counterparts… a nearly 23 year old woman with a boy who JUST turned 18 a couple weeks ago- well, it’s not hideous, but it is unusual, for sure. most women wouldn’t want an 18 year old unless they were a horny 40-something cougar with nothing but Mrs. Robinson sex in mind. but taylor somehow has remained a child… i don’t understand how, but she has. whatever.
