"She handles herself wonderfully publicly," he told the outlet, which noted that the interview took place before the coupled announced their break-up in November. "And I've learned so much from her about how to handle it, how to deal with it and just kind of be whatever about it, you know?"

Last month, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the pair had called it quits after more than a year of dating – and two months after they made their red-carpet debut at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures' opening gala in Los Angeles.

Though the couple kept a relatively low profile throughout their relationship, the pair would occasionally address their relationship.

"Being able to be with someone I trust, where we don't want anything from each other, having a safe, steady relationship like that, has really opened my eyes to the possibilities of love and what it feels like to love without conditions," the model told the magazine. "Lust is touching other people or wanting them, but love is really seeing someone."

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in August, Elordi told guest host Julie Bowen that Gerber chopped off his mullet – a hairstyle she wasn't a fan of – one week into dating.

"My girlfriend, within a week of us dating, she cut it off. She took me to the bathroom, and she got scissors and she cut it off," he recalled. "She said, 'You're cute, but you're not that cute.'"

Gerber and Elordi were first linked in Sept. 2020 when they were spotted having dinner at Nobu in Malibu, California.

A source told PEOPLE at the time, "It was obvious that things are great with Jacob. They were very affectionate and cute. Jacob is a gentleman and kept making sure Kaia was enjoying herself."
