It’s been a rough couple of months for The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik and his fiancée Courtney Robertson. But now that their relationship is out in the open, the couple seem to have let all the drama go and are trying to move forward with their lives.
For the first time since the After the Final Rose special, Courtney has spoken out about her relationship with Ben and the plans for their future.
“I just spent the weekend with Ben in San Francisco and people kept coming up to us and offering words of encouragement. So, things seem to be getting better,” Courtney tells Wetpaint.com in an exclusive interview.
Although there have been stories about Ben’s alleged infidelity, Courtney says she “believes him when he says he didn’t cheat” and “trusts him” completely. She's actually already over the rumors and just plans to be with the man she loves.
“I’m hopeful it will happen by summer,” Courtney says of moving to San Francisco to live with Ben. “We’re not in a rush, but neither of us wants to be in a long distance relationship for very long. For now, we have a lot of fun, little trips planned. But I do love San Francisco and can definitely see having a happy life there with Ben.”
Courtney says that despite all the negativity toward her from fans of the show and the other bachelorettes, she’s happy to be with Ben, who “stuck by” her when no one else did.
“He trusted and believed in the real me,” she explains. “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. I found Ben… and he made everything worth it. “
