"Everyone's saying it's too close for comfort," Robertson told E! News. "But honestly, that's not even on my radar. Cavan and I are ready to start our lives together."
Robertson, a 30-year-old model from Santa Monica, CA, and Clark reportedly dated prior to her stint on The Bachelor.
"We've been talking about getting back together for a while now," Robertson explained. "The first time we dated, we had to do long distance and we both hated it."
Robertson got engaged to Flajnik, a 30-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, CA, when he selected and proposed to her during The Bachelor's sixteenth-season final Rose Ceremony, which was filmed in November 2011 and aired in March.
According to Life & Style, Flajnik and Robertson had announced they were breaking up because they had "grown apart" due to "distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers."
However, Robertson told Life & Style in early November 2012 that the winemaker treated her "so badly" and she was "miserable with Ben" during their 10-month relationship, leaving Flajnik a little surprised and speechless.
Robertson went on to date Arie Luyendyk Jr. -- who finished as Emily Maynard's runner-up during The Bachelorette's eighth edition -- while Flajnik remained single. Flajnik told People at the time he was "glad there is a new guy" although he thought he was buddies with Luyendyk Jr. leading up to that point.
Things apparently got so bad between the pair that Flajnik came out and told Life & Style he regretted choosing Robertson over some -- if not all -- of the other 24 competing girls during his The Bachelor season.
"I should apologize to all those women and say, 'Sorry I didn't see it,'" Flajnik told the magazine late last year. "I really have lost all respect for this person that I thought I knew and that I was in love with at one point."
