One month after the breakup that rocked Bachelor Nation, Clare Crawley and Dale Moss were spotted holding hands and having a grand old time in Florida. So, are they officially back on or just testing the waters? Here’s what we know.
After Crawley exited her own season of The Bachelorette with Moss, things seemed to be going well. The two were all over social media together, and there were even some wedding rumors floating around.
Things seemed serious until Moss unexpectedly announced their breakup via a “mutual” announcement in January. “I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways. We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time,” he said on January 19 in a since-deleted post.
However, it seemed like Clare Crawley was actually blindsided by Dale Moss’s post. She wrote on her own Instagram January 21, “I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this.”
That’s when things started getting a little messy. In an emotional 11-minute Instagram Live video January 30, the Bachelorette contestant admitted to feeling “fucking wrecked” and was carrying “so much guilt” over the entire situation.
“This has fucking rocked me. I felt so many emotions, so much guilt, but also so much confusion, so much hurt, and I know that we both have,” he said. “And looking for so many answers before this even happened on how to make things better. But the reality of it is, life isn’t perfect. And we make mistakes. I’ve made a lot of them; I know we all do.”
Now, things may be looking up. On February 16, TMZ shared photos of the former couple sharing a drink at Nokomo’s Sunset Hut in Nokomis, Florida, nearly one month post-breakup. That same day, Bachelor expert and spoiler extraordinaire, Reality Steve, posted photos and a video of the pair looking happy and even holding hands sans masks.
As for us, we’re simply awaiting the next Instagram statement.
