Ben and Courtney sit down ONLY with Life & Style and insist their rough patch is behind them and they're ready to make this work!
The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson invited Life & Style exclusively into the apartment they share in Ben's hometown of San Francisco to reveal what it's really like inside their eight-month-old relationship.
"It's a soft move-in," Ben tells the new issue of Life & Style. "We're spending long periods together to make sure it works." So far, so good. "We're taking it slow," notes Courtney, who's also keeping her place in LA.
After their televised engagement, a tearful breakup and reports of Ben kissing other women, the duo reunited and retreated from the spotlight. This is their second attempt to live together. "A couple of months ago we tried this, and it didn't go so well," confides Ben. But the two decided to focus on dating instead of acting like the engaged couple they are. "We've been feeling our way through it, day by day," Courtney says about their unorthodox romance.
"I love Ben very much -- I've never loved anyone as much as I love him," raves Courtney. "It's been great!" echoes Ben.
And in five years' time, they tell Life & Style, they're sure they'll be married with babies. But for now, having her own key is enough for Courtney. "It's nice and cozy here," she gushes. "I feel really at home."
