Tyler Reveals The Real Reason Rachel Dumped Him Even Before Meeting His Family

Rachel Recchia dumped Tyler Norris ahead of meeting with his family and right after he confessed he’s in love with her on the latest episode of The Bachelorette.

Even though the couple seemed to have had a great time on their one-on-one date, where they went on rides together and ate some classic park food, following which she met a few of his close friends and cousins.

The Bachelorette soon realised she had stronger feelings towards the other 3 contestants which left Tyler heartbroken. In an interview with Parade, he talked about the break up and why he thinks she dumped him even before meeting his family.

“I’m a very emotional guy. I’m not afraid to say how I feel.” Tyler tells Parade.com “Getting dumped was hard at the time to understand but when you think back on it, you say to yourself, OK, if she had met my family and knew I wasn’t ‘it,’ you’re bringing more people into it and getting deeper into a relationship and it’s going to hurt even more.

“So I’m feeling like she didn’t string me along,” he noted. “I have so much respect for her. I think she did it at the right time and I’m happy with the way she went about it. If it wasn’t going to be me, I’m glad she did it when she did.”

He continued, “I got a lot of closure watching the season, understanding where everyone else was at. [Other men] had some more time with Rachel, had deeper talks and obviously they were closer. Seeing that made me understand why everything happened the way that it did.”

“I think that ultimately, I put my whole self out there for somebody,” he said. “I wasn’t scared of being vulnerable. I just wanted her to see the side of me that you would get forever. We were looking for engagement here, looking to spend the rest of our lives with somebody so watching it back, seeing how it ended, it was tough but I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I made friends for the rest of my life. I’d do it all over again.”

Tyler also too to Instagram to write a few words about his journey on the show.

He posted this picture of him and Rachel on the social media platform and wrote:
