AceShowbiz - Clare Crawley gave more insights into the end of her and Dale Moss's relationship. During her appearance on Jana Kramer's "Whine Down" podcast on Thursday, October 21, the former "The Bachelorette" star addresses the split while hinting that it was Dale who gave up on her.
"At this very moment, I'm OK. Things are up and down for me just in general in my life. Sometimes it's minute to minute," so Clare told host Jana. "[But] right now, I'm OK. And I feel like I'm OK because I'm sitting with a woman that understands my life. We've had similar paths with a lot of things and it's comforting."
The hairstylist went on to say, "I always feel like I do not want to have regrets and I don’t even know -- to be honest -- if I would have done things differently because I was doing the best I could at the time with the information that I had." She added, "And if my biggest regret is trusting the process, trusting a man's words and who he showed me he was, I don't think that that's a regret. I trusted somebody, I believed somebody that they were who that they said they were [and] that they would hold up to the promises that they make when they get down on one knee."
During the interview, Clare also suggested that she loved the former athlete more than he loved her. "We want somebody to love us how hard we love them and when it's not reciprocated or it's not done to that level or in that way, it's hard to process that," Clare shared. "It's hurtful, especially when they're saying one thing and doing another. That especially stings extra because it's like, 'Ugh how could you do that to somebody you love?' It's hard to comprehend things like that."
The California native went on to hint that she and Dale were not on the same page when it came to showing affection through action. "In -- I'll say this -- a past relationship, it was verbatim that. And he was like, 'Why are you so angry? Why are you fighting? You're just picking a fight.' And I'm like, 'Do you realize what I'm fighting over? I'm fighting and yelling at you to hold me, to hug me right now, to give me comfort because I just want to love on you. And I want you to love on me.' … It wouldn't be a fight to the right person."
Dale and Clare first broke up in January after they got engaged in September 2020 while filming season 16 of "The Bachelorette". The pair, however, got back together only to call it quits in September of this year.
