JoJo Fletcher blogged about the Final Rose, the devastating break up with Robby Hayes and who made her realize she made the right decision for PEOPLE.
About her break up with Robby Hayes, she wrote:
“Saying goodbye to Robby was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my life. I had loved this man.
I never wanted Robby to question what we had, or have him ever think that he was alone in our relationship. I decided to tell him in that final moment that I did love him. I wanted to give him that clarity, and in a way, closure. I never wanted him to walk away with questions or regret. I wanted him to know I had loved him, I just didn’t have that forever love with him.
That last moment with Robby was full of sadness. To see him in so much pain and sorrow broke my heart. I know I made the right choice for me, but saying goodbye to the type of love that Robby gives, and to break the heart of a man capable of that love, was heartbreaking.”
About choosing Jordan Rodgers:
“Hearing Jordan’s beautiful proposal was the best feeling I’ve ever had. Those words were everything I ever wanted on the day that I would be accepting a proposal. I also couldn’t wait to tell Jordan that I finally loved him! It was an unbelievable feeling to finally let the man that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with know how I felt.
The moment he got down on one knee, I have to be honest: I think I blacked out. I just had an overwhelming sense of happiness and love. It truly was one of the greatest moments of my life. The love that Jordan and I exchanged on that final day in Thailand has only grown stronger with each day since. This journey hasn’t been the easiest, but my God, it was worth it! I cannot wait to marry this amazing man!!!”
