“Chatting with him and hanging out with him, it’s easy to understand why Clare would fall for him so fast,” she said.
Despite the ups and downs, Moss seemed eager to make things work with the blonde babe. “I’ve never been afraid of commitment. And when I met Clare, I knew I was all in. She lights a fire in me that I was missing for so long,” he said.
Meanwhile, the California native seemed like she was head-over-heels for her man. “We have this connection where it just feels like I’ve known him forever,” she said. “It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace. It’s something that is so rare to feel so connected to someone when you’ve only known them for such a short period of time.”
Guess the former flames just weren't meant to be!
