Courtney Robertson Calls Her Date With Arie Luyendyk Jr. “A Nice Escape”
After Courtney Robertson’s unexpected split from her Bachelor fiance Ben Flajnik, she set the Internet ablaze when she revealed that she and Bachelorette runner-up Arie Luyendyk, Jr had a casual, yet romantic date in their mutual hometown of Phoenix. She’s now opening up to Life & Style about the date — and what she was and wasn’t looking for in Arie’s arms.
“It was a nice escape — a distraction,” Courtney says, adding, “I was heartbroken and just wanted to go out and have fun. That was it. It was nothing more than a night out.” Sounds like the perfect night out to us — we can’t blame her for turning to Arie’s baby blues to get her mind off her breakup from Ben.
However, after breaking off her engagement less than two weeks ago, Courtney insists she’s not looking for anything serious with Emily Maynard’s ex. She says, “Right now I'm focusing on healing my heart.” But she’s not giving up on love entirely, admitting, “I’m a hopeless romantic and still believe I will find my soulmate. I need a guy who is ready for that chapter.”
