‘BIP’: Caelynn Miller-Keyes Says Dating Dean Unglert Makes Her ‘So Frustrated’: ‘I Will Get Angry or Cry’
There aren’t many couples from Bachelor in Paradise who’ve stayed together well beyond the season’s end, but Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert defied the odds. While Miller-Keyes is known as a beauty queen and Unglert traveled around in a van, it seems opposites attract. Now, the two are living together and talking about marriage.
Miller-Keyes just got real about her relationship with Unglert, though. She explained on YouTube that she gets “so frustrated” when dating him. Here’s why.
Caelynn Miller-Keyes thinks Dean Unglert makes her a better person
Miller-Keyes never imagined herself with someone as adventurous and bold as Unglert, but she believes she’s a better person for dating him. She’s talked at length about her new worldly travels and how she’s become a lot more comfortable in her own skin since dating Unglert. And she also thinks they’ve truly developed a partnership.
“I think that’s a huge thing that’s changed, yeah. That’s one thing that’s changed drastically from that time in Europe to our relationship now,” Miller-Keyes told Nick Viall on the Viall Files podcast. “It really does feel like a partnership vs. me just catering to him. He does think of me and, like you said, he has the biggest heart. He treats me very, very well. I think people would not be surprised to know that, but he is a really good boyfriend.”
In her Q&A video she posted on Aug. 17, Miller-Keyes noted Unglert’s made her “so much more chill and mellow” and “loving,” too. “I just feel like I was this uptight, wound-up ball, and I cared about what every single person thought of me … and he’s just made me relax.”
She said she gets ‘so frustrated’ by how much Unglert pushes her
While Miller-Keyes certainly adores Unglert, there are still times when she gets upset with him. Unglert loves to push his girlfriend out of her comfort zone. From adventurous trips across the globe to scary hikes nearby, Miller-Keyes noted in her Q&A video that while she appreciates the push, she does get frustrated.
“He’s so supportive and so kind, but he pushes me,” Miller-Keyes notes. “And he pushes me to the point where I get so frustrated with him. I will either get angry or cry. ‘Cause I do cry in scary situations, like if heights are involved.”
While she does get frustrated, Miller-Keyes still noted that she “loves” the push and the challenge. “Every time I get mad at him for doing a scary hike or rock climb or almost jumping out of an airplane, I look back and I’m like, that was the best experience of my like. I’m realizing that I need to be pushed.”
‘Bachelor in Paradise’ fans noticed Unglert pushing Miller-Keyes
While Miller-Keyes loves everything about Unglert (and embraces his quirks and flaws), her fans aren’t always happy with how much Unglert seems to push her.
On June 17, Unglert posted photos to Instagram showing Miller-Keyes rock climbing outdoors. “Few things make me happier than seeing @caelynnmillerkeyes push herself outside of her comfort zone,” he captioned the post.
Some followers didn’t like what they saw, though. “Pics are sick but the caption is sad,” a follower noted. “Like … just accept each other for who you are or maybe find someone else. It’s cute now, but 10 years down the line when you both settle back into what makes you happy, the marriage will dissolve.”
I’m glad you enjoy staying in your comfort zone,” Unglert wrote back. “There’s nothing wrong with that. Some people like pushing themselves, and you’re not responsible for deciding whether they enjoy it or now. Enjoy living the same life for 50 years. We will enjoy growing and changing as time moves on.”
As long as Miller-Keyes and Unglert are happy regarding how their relationship is working out, then that’s all that matters!
