Fans think Dale Moss is the one who ended the relationship

On Reddit, fans of The Bachelorette found the fact Crawley and Moss did not release joint statements to be a concern. Some fans also interpreted Moss’ breakup announcement to be cold, leading them to speculate that Moss is the one who called it quits.

“Considering they didn’t release a joint statement or coordinate SM posts +knowing their personalities and Dale’s posting casual stories leading up to this announcement, I’m guessing Dale was the one who pulled the plug,” a fan wrote on Reddit. “Clare was absolutely rash during her season, but this announcement from him just feels cold and impersonal.”

Another fan wrote, “The breakup itself isn’t surprising to me. It’s the coldness on his part about it. The no picture, the cold impersonal signing off on it, the pretending nothing was up and acting cheery on his stories. Usually Bach breakups seem at least pretend personal…”

While some fans think Moss could be to blame for the breakup, others are not convinced anyone is in the wrong.

“Why are we all mad at Dale? I agree that signing your Instagram story is a weird move but other than that, what did he do to deserve all the bashing? I don’t think there needs to be a villain here…,” a Reddit user wrote.
