Andi Dorfman is out one fiance, but The Bachelorette has more friends and fans than ever before, and she’s forever grateful for each and every one of them.
“In a journey that changed my life, I have felt the strongest love and happiness but also the darkest sorrow and pain,” Andi, 28, wrote on Instagram.
“But I am alive. I am standing. Not alone, but surrounded by every stranger’s kind word. By every immeasurable ounce of love from family and friends.”
The former Assistant D.A. said, “I have searched for the words to express my gratitude but can’t seem to find them. So I will just use two … THANK YOU.”
Inspiring words for inspiring fans, from what it sounds like.
Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray broke up after a six-month engagement, surprising many fans who thought they were over the moon – because they were.
As recently as The Bachelor season premiere, they were together and happy. Or so it seemed. That was the final straw for the once-beaming couple.
“[There was] nothing official before that, obviously to make the decision to end the engagement doesn’t just happen overnight,” she said this week.
“We had struggled for a while, we definitely did,” she tearfully added in a sit-down with host Chris Harrison, calling the breakup the biggest failure of her life.
“We … just didn’t better each other. I didn’t feel supported and empowered, and I don’t think I gave him the support and empowerment that he needed.”
“I’ll always love him, like I’ve never loved anybody like that in my life,” she added of the former baseball player turned financial professional, 30.
“That was my first true love, without a doubt.”
Here’s wishing both parties the best, and at least Andi can take solace in the fact that her ABC romance lasted a lot longer than some of her predecessors …
