The Bachelor Nation star also revealed that he was originally set to move to Michelle’s home state of Minnesota earlier this year, but that “plans changed when we decided there was no need to rush.”

He added that the couple “wanted to get to know each other on a deeper level before taking the plunge into living together.”

Nayte also shot down the idea that their breakup had anything to do with their friends, including his season 18 castmates.

“Yeah, I like hanging out with my boys. Just like she likes to hang out with her girls. Nothing wrong with that. If anything, super healthy,” he shared. “We’re social people. Not everyone who goes to bars is a scammer.”
