Courtney Robertson is speaking out about her split from Ben Flajnik, blaming the long-distance factor for the end of The Bachelor stars' relationship.
Of course, if you're engaged, don't you typically move in with your fiance?
"Our relationship has been tested pretty much the entire time we’ve been together,” she confides. “When I stayed [with Ben] for long periods of time, it helped."
"I think if we’d lived together, we wouldn’t have broken up.”
Though they claim the split was mutual, releasing a joint statement announcing it, Courtney Robertson says by the time they decided to split, “I knew I had no fight left.”
“Right now I'm focusing on healing my heart. I’m a hopeless romantic and still believe I will find my soul mate. I need a guy who is ready for that chapter.”
Just a few months ago, Robertson was trying on wedding dresses in L.A.
“We had just started talking about wedding dates for fall 2013,” she says.
Alas, it was not to be. It rarely is in The Bachelor/Bachelorette universe.
Speaking of which, Emily Maynard and Jef Holm apparently broke up too.
They haven't admitted this yet, but it's reportedly over and done with.
