Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy first met on July 3, 2012 in Hyannis Port. They were introduced by Conor's cousin Patrick Schwarzenegger. Taylor was romantically linked to Patrick, but it was only media speculation because she was interested in Conor.
They began dating after Conor's 18th birthday, on July 26, 2012, which means Taylor and Conor waited for him to be legal so they could start dating.
They were papped together several times, cuddling, kissing and holding hands. On August 13, 2012, rumors that Taylor bought a house in near to the Kennedy's compound in Massachusetts surfaced. This rumor was later confirmed to be truth.
Taylor and Conor were spotted together for the last time on August 20, 2012. They apparently broke up in early September 2012. Their break-up was confirmed by Taylor's reps on October 25, 2012, a month after they broke up.
Taylor began dating One Direction's member Harry Styles just weeks after her split from Conor.
Their summer love apparently inspired Taylor to write "Everything Has Changed" (featuring Ed Sheeran) one of the tracks from her album "Red" (released on October 22, 2012). However, the song was written before Taylor met Conor so it means Taylor probably dedicated the song to Conor but didn't wrote it about him. "Everything Has Changed" secret message is Hyannis Port, where Taylor and Conor met.
On March 6, 2013, it was confirmed by Taylor's reps that she sold her house in Massachusetts after months of renovations.
