The Bachelor season 20 winner Lauren Bushnell is going steady with her new boyfriend Devin Antin, two months after splitting with Ben Higgins.
Ben and Lauren were together for over a year and he says it’s too soon for him to move on after the break up.
“If I were to kiss somebody right now in my life, it would hold a lot of weight.” Ben said on his Almost Famous podcast with Ashley Iaconetti.
“It would be really hard for me. Right now, for me to kiss anybody … my chest kind of gets tight. I know that’s really difficult for me.”
He addressed Lauren’s new relationship and his love life.
“Recently I’ve tried to stay away from talking about those situations’cause I know they hurt people and they’re hard to talk about still.
Dating or relationships are very sensitive to me right now and it’s just not something I’m wanting to talk about, honestly.”
He’s not ready for a new girlfriend just yet, Ben admits he does get “tempted” by the thought of a new relationship.
“I desire commitment and I desire to emotionally attach myself to somebody… and say ‘Hey, I’ve got your back and I’m here for you,’” he says.
“[But] I am forcing myself to get to know myself better, to find myself a little bit, to figure out who I am now. Once I do that–I don’t know when that is–hopefully I’ll have somebody then in my life who will tell me they love me and I’ll know it.”
