Another one bites the dust! Victoria Fuller revealed she and Chris Soules have called it quits after their whirlwind romance. “I am just living my best life. We went a separate direction, but I, like, respect him so much and I think he’s an amazing man. I just think that right now, I’m in a different place than he is,” the 26-year-old former Bachelor star told Nick Viall on the Wednesday, September 9, episode of his podcast, the “Viall Files.”
“I’m not moving to Iowa anytime soon, so I just want to focus on me,” she explained. “It’s been so much about other people this year, that I just really want to hone in on what I want to accomplish.”
In April, the brunette beauty went to visit Soules, 38, on his farm in the Midwest. From then on, the former flames — who were introduced by Fuller’s pal Kelsey Weier — moved quickly, and the Bachelor alum even visited Fuller’s family in Virginia.
In July, Fuller spoke about her connection with Soules and revealed they were "enjoying each other."
“I think we were both really nervous,” Fuller told People about meeting Soules for the first time. “But it wasn’t awkward. It felt really natural. And immediately, I was like, ‘I really like him!’ I felt a genuine connection. And Iowa is so quiet — we were able to just focus on each other and enjoy each other’s company.”
Despite calling it quits, it seems like the two reality stars are on good terms. “I still talk to him all the time,” she revealed. “I think he’s amazing. We are a lot alike, but I just want to focus on myself right now. I’m not a farmer, but I know a lot about f--king corn now.”
Fuller didn’t reveal exactly what went wrong, but admitted things were “complicated.” Ultimately, the brunette beauty is hopeful that the Dancing With the Stars alum will find what he’s looking for. “He is an amazing man and he deserves somebody super awesome who’s willing to go to Iowa and live in Iowa and right now, I’m not there yet. Maybe I will be in a couple of years.”
Soules has remained out of the spotlight since he got engaged to Whitney Bischoff during his season of The Bachelor, which aired in 2015.
