"I still very much believe in marriage and love. I was just really young when I met my ex. So I’m open to it — even after all these horrible dates!" she told Us Weekly in September 2023.

"Remind yourself that everything is temporary. It’s horrible, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Allow yourself grace and know that when you get to the other side, it’s the most beautiful thing," she added.

It seems like Estes hit a high bar, as Cavallari explained she isn’t going to commit to just anyone.

"I’ll go on a first date with someone and sit there thinking, 'Could you be a stepfather to my children?' And then I’m like, 'No, you suck.' The good thing is I’m not going to waste my time. I have really high standards now because of my kids," she stated at the time.
