Ben Flajnik may be single — but he’s not quite ready to mingle.
Ever since he and Courtney Robertson issued a statement Friday afternoon that they’ve split — saying “we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers” — tongues have been wagging about the prospect of hunky Ben being back on the market.
But not so quick.
“He’s not looking to jump into the dating scene quite yet,” a source tells GossipDavid.com. “He’s going to focus on his winery [in northern California] and spend time with his family and friends.”
As for whether their joint statement really is joint, and that their split truly is harmonious, the source promises, “It was mutual and amicable. They are still on speaking terms and will definitely remain friends and support each other.”
Adds the source, “They are both genuinely great people. The split is for the best.”
But was there something that finally forced Ben and Courtney to end it? “Nothing specifically triggered it,” says the source. “The long distance [she's in L.A.; he's in San Francisco] was a big part of it.”
