“Basically I called off the engagement [for] the same reason I got a divorce, and so I guess if there’s any takeaway from that is you can’t ignore red flags,” Cavallari said. “People don’t change, and you’ve got to trust your gut," she shared.
The reality star, 35, and the athlete ended up getting married, but they later split in 2020 after 10 years together. The Laguna Beach alum noted that it was a "really scary decision" to end her marriage, adding that it took her "a few years to actually pull the trigger."
“It was just time,” she said. “Nothing major happened. At the end, it was just time. … It’s the scariest thing. It’s always the saddest thing. I mean, it’s so many emotions, but it can also be the best thing.”
Despite things not working out, the businesswoman said is "thankful for our time together," especially because her three children, Camden, 9, Jaxon, 8, and Saylor, 6, were the best things to happen to her.
The blonde babe noted that she is "very careful about what I say" when it comes to their father since Camden has Googled his parents before.
“It was toxic period, end of story. That’s all I need to say," she stated.
Since then, it seems like Cavallari is in a great place, as she is meeting new people.
“My DMs have essentially been my dating app,” she admitted. “I’ve actually been on quite a few dates."
“I have gone on a date with a businessman in Nashville, actually,” the former MTV star explained. “But we’ll see. I don’t like people that often, and I’m pretty picky, I guess, but I’m not gonna settle. I’m gonna stay picky."
"I’ve been pretty able to keep things on the DL lately, which is nice,” she added.
