In her cover interview with Seventeen magazine, she confirmed their split, revealing that it wasn’t easy, but ultimately, she needed to be comfortable being single.
“I’ve always been in relationships, and I knew I needed to learn to be comfortable alone,” she admitted, adding that it wasn’t an easy process, but they remain friends. "Anytime you go through a breakup, it's rough. Ryan and I are still close, but I'm too young to be in a serious relationship.”
Ultimately, she knows that she could fall in love any day now, but she remains cautious.
"If it happens, it happens. I'm 23 — I could have a boyfriend tomorrow,” she noted. “But relationships are scary, because once you're in one, you have to face the idea of breaking up or staying together forever. It’s scary.”
