While most Bachelor Nation couples would be engaged and living together by now, Colton, 27, recently told Extra that he and Cassie, 24, have decided to take things slower than other relationships fans have seen on the show.
Cassie is currently living in a West Hollywood apartment with her younger sister, Michelle Randolph, while Colton is living north of Hollywood. The former NFL player explained that they haven't moved in together in order to avoid repeating the mistakes of past Bachelor couples.
“We are trying to do everything as normal as possible,” he told the publication. “I don’t think you realize how many important steps you miss in the Bachelor process, which is nothing against them. We just want to make sure we do this the right way."
"Statistically speaking, for Bachelors, it’s not very good odds, so I think us going against what other Bachelor and Bachelorette couples have done is probably going to work out in our favor," he added.
Colton continued, "We both feel like living our separate lives but still coming together at the end of the day is what’s most important for us and what’s the right step for where we’re at in our relationship.”
As OK! readers remember, Cassie said her goodbyes to Colton towards the end of the season after not knowing if she was in love with him.
Unlike the California native, the ABC star was certain she was the one and decided to break things off with the last two women standing — Hannah Godwin and Tayshia Adam. Not long after, viewers saw Colton win Cassie back, but the pair decided to simply continue dating rather than get engaged like most contestants on the show.
