Meanhwhile, Jason Tartick is still processing his split from ex-fiancée Kaitlyn Bristowe.

“Kaitlyn meant so much to me and still currently does, and I get so worried,” Jason, 35, revealed during a December 8 appearance on former Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison‘s “The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever” episode.

He continued, “I want to preface this … I just get so worried about the repercussions of what I say and I care, still, so much for her and it’s really, really hard for me to have these conversations. So, I’ll do my best.”

“You don’t want to belittle someone who’s lost a significant other. You don’t want to compare but a big breakup, a divorce, it’s a loss,” Chris Harrison tells Jason. “You are mourning the loss of something and it’s different than losing a significant other or [my wife], Lauren [Zima], losing her dad, but at the same time, you are still losing something and you’re losing someone and what’s also difficult about that is that someone still exists. They didn’t go away. They did not die, you’re going to see them.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick announced their break up in August, after being together for four years.

“See you soon, bye for now,” wrote Kaitlyn, 38, on her Instagram story. She appeared red-nosed and make-up free in the selfie.

“If everyone can say some sort of prayer for both of our hearts we would love that. I just know social media can be awful so taking a little break,” she wrote. Kaitlyn changed her Instagram bio to “BRB. Healing.”

After sharing the news with family and close friends first, and taking the time to properly process it ourselves, we are saddened with heavy hearts to share that we have decided to end our engagement.”

They added, “We are thankful for all of you who gave us the time and space to process this life altering decision as there are many emotions and changes to navigate. Our dogs Ramen & Pinot will continue to be cared for together as brothers. While their humans are no longer romantically involved, we will love and take care of them together.”

“Continuing our friendship is incredibly important to both of us. We feel grateful to be ending our engagement with love and respect for each other. It’s heartbreaking and sad to say goodbye, but our care and admiration for one another will never die. We are beyond thankful for the memories made together, and for your support of us and the boys throughout the years. Moving forward we will always have that level of support for each other. We don’t know what the future holds so please try to hold space for us in your hearts,” the two concluded.
