Clare Crawley and Dale Moss fell in love quickly on ‘The Bachelorette’

Before the season began airing, reports started coming out that Crawley had fallen in love after just two weeks of filming. The reports turned out to be true. After just a few weeks, Crawley chose Moss and the two got engaged.

“That was something that you can’t really anticipate with anybody, you don’t know,” she told Entertainment Tonight of her relationship with Moss. ”[But I didn’t know] like, was he feeling that? Are we on the same page?

“Usually in my experience, as relationships go, there’s always somebody that’s ahead of the other person,” she continued. “It’s really rare that you connect on that same page at the same time, so it was just — it was one of those magical things that I guess just happens.”

Earlier this week, Moss announced to Instagram that he and Crawley had split.

“I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways.

Apparently, Crawley did not know about the breakup until Moss posted it on social media.

“I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this,” she wrote on Instagram. “Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed.

“This was not what I expected or hoped for and am still trying to process this,” she continued. “2020 was one hell of a year, with COVID, battling severe anxiety post-show, balancing a public new relationship, all while slowly losing my mother. It hasn’t been ideal circumstances, but that is life right. I have been looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel.”

There is zero truth to any cheating rumors. Dale was faithful the entire time he was dating Clare. He never cheated on her.”
