Looks as if Taylor Swift is too busy to date these days: As the days have grown shorter, she and Conor Kennedy have reportedly broken off their summer fling.

"They quietly parted ways a while ago," a Swift friend told Us Weekly about the 22-year-old singer and her 18-year-old high school student flame. "It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine."

Well that's good news, given Swift's penchant for writing songs when she's vexed by exes — think "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," her catchy hit from the new album "Red," which dropped Monday. 

Swift and Kennedy, who were spotted together all over Hyannis Port, Mass., and elsewhere in July and August, haven't seen each other for more than a month, the friend told the mag. "With her promotion for 'Red,' she has no time off until the end of the year."

The news apparently doesn't mean Swift is breaking off her love affair with Hyannis Port itself, however. According to TMZ on Thursday, she's still moving ahead with plans to purchase a $4.5-million home across the street from Ethel Kennedy.
