Both Courtney Robertson and Arie Luyendyk, Jr. are natives of Phoenix, AZ. So it only makes sense that while the two of them were home visiting family, they got together and had dinner last night. But was it more than a platonic meal?

“It was a date,” an insider exclusively reveals to Wetpaint Entertainment. “It was very casual, but it was a date.”

“In truth, Courtney and Ben hadn’t been working for a long time,” the insider explains. “So now that they’ve announced their breakup, she’s slowly dipping her foot back into the dating pool. Arie is someone she feels comfortable with.”

“He’s had a crush on her for a long time,” the insider adds. “But he would have never made a move on her while she was with Ben.”

But while the vibe was romantic, the two are not serious. “Both of them have busy careers that keep them traveling a lot,” says the source. “Who knows the next time they’ll be able to see each other?”

Soon, we hope. We think they'd make a cute couple!

UPDATE: Photos of the date are now up on TMZ.
