Weber and Flanagan were seen together in Chicago along the Riverwalk on March 25, according to People. They were also with Dustin Kendrick from Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. In one picture, Weber is seen carrying Flanagan over his shoulder.

They have reportedly been isolating together during the coronavirus outbreak. Kendrick talked about what they’ve been doing to entertain themselves.

“It’s just the three of us staying at Kelley’s apartment. We’ve just been chilling, making TikTok videos, trying to stay out of trouble with people,” Kendrick told Us Weekly. “I’m going to be here [quarantining with Peter and Kelley] until the very end. Hopefully, this will be over at the end of the month, so, we’ll just see how it goes. Hopefully, we all stay together through this time.”

Hannah Ann Sluss gave her reaction to them being spotted together

Sluss shared how she was hurt by Weber on After the Finale Rose. Fans wouldn’t be surprised if Weber and Flanagan hanging out also hurt her given she was engaged to Weber. She gave her reaction to it on The Viall Files with Nick Viall. He asked her if it felt like a slap in the face.

“I’m not giving either of them my face to slap,” Sluss answered. “At the end of the day, I’m single, Peter’s single, Kelley’s single, we’re all single. Good for them if that’s the case.”

She continued, “When you’ve just been through so much crap and you see the light at the end of the tunnel, little things like that don’t drag you down that much…I’m just glad I’m out of it…It’s definitely confusing, but maybe it will work out for them and he’ll be decisive about her.”

Many fans have assumed Weber and Flanagan are dating given they’ve been spending so much time together. The pilot claims that isn’t the case.

“Are we dating? No. Do I love spending time with her? Absolutely,” Weber said on The Viall Files when talking to Viall. “We’re not dating. Could I see that in the future? Yeah, of course. I’d be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened.”

He admitted that he’s “the last person that needs to rush into any kind of relationship” given he was recently engaged to Sluss. Weber talked more about the timing of things.

“I just had an engagement [with Hannah Ann] that didn’t work out. I just was trying to pursue things with another woman [Madison Prewett] that didn’t work out,” he said. “That’s why right now I’m just taking it really, really slow.”

So despite rumors, Weber claims he is just friends with Flanagan. It does sound like he can still picture a future with her if things work out.
