Bachelor Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph are currently together and very cute (Cassie’s been taking care of Colton while he recovers from coronavirus), but their relationship has definitely had some ups and downs. In a People excerpt from his new memoir The First Time, Colton explains that he and Cassie briefly broke up last August.
“To put it very frank, after the show, we realized we weren’t communicating as well as we once did,” he writes. “Nobody was forcing us to talk about real things going on, so we let a lot of things build up.”
He adds, “In a weird way, I kind of broke up with myself. I was like, I feel like we need to figure this out and in order to do that, we need space. She agreed. So it was a mutual thing.”
The breakup didn’t last long, because within just a couple days Colton says “it was like, ‘I miss you!” That said, “It was a very real and very emotional breakup, but it was also very good to be real and emotional because it forced us to have conversations and move on. Now, we know the flags to look for. When issues start to creep up, it’s like, let’s go have a conversation. We’re trying to be more transparent and honest and really trust each other.”
And for those of you wondering, yes and engagement is in this couple’s future: “If she were here, she’d nudge me for saying this, but I think an engagement is something we’d both like to see this year. No matter what, I don’t want my life without her. Our relationship hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been worth it.”
