The 29-year-old model, who just ended her engagement with Bachelor Ben Flajnik a month ago, tells Life & Style, “Yes, I’m dating Arie.” She also said, “We’re enjoying our time together.”
Courtney elaborated on her breakup with Ben, who she had a rocky relationship with from the start: “I was miserable with Ben; he treated me so badly.” She says that, as soon as Ben turned 30, he told her he wasn’t “ready” for marriage yet.
Now, she allows that she “didn’t want to jump from one public relationship to another,” but she can’t help how well she’s getting along with Arie. “Arie makes me laugh so hard, and he’s adorable, so I’m going with it.”
Just because these two didn’t find the loves of their lives on TV doesn’t mean their reality show experience was a total bust. As Rihanna says, people can still find love in a hopeless place. And now, they’re truly full of hope.
