Trouble in paradise? Um, definitely not! Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph are not shacking up, just yet, a source exclusively told Life & Style because apparently, the duo is waiting for the perfect moment to take the next step.
“Colton and Cassie have made the mutual decision that the timing just isn’t right to live together at the moment,” the insider explained. “They’re waiting to see if their feelings continue to grow to marriage-level commitment. She really does want to see if it will work for them 100 percent, and in order to do that, she realizes she needs to take it at a normal pace.”
The blonde beauty, 23, revealed on Wednesday, March 27, that she is uprooting her life to Los Angeles so that she can be closer to her beau, 27. Previously, the Bachelor star was living with her parents in Huntington Beach, California, which is about 90 minutes from L.A. Talk about a long-distance relationship!
“Today marks a new chapter for me and [Michelle Randolph]!” the California native wrote on Instagram. “I’m not abandoning my beach home, (since I’ll be interning for grad school in HB), but adding a city home to the mix. And bonus, I’m now closer to Colton, so yay! OH, and in the same building as Caelynn [Miller-Keyes]! Any other S23 girls wanna join?”
The source added, “Cassie had been planning for a while to move to the Los Angeles area but was waiting for the right time and wanted to save money. The timing is perfect now because Colton, of course, lives close by — only a few minutes away.”
The lovebirds are slowly adjusting back into a normal routine, so it makes sense that they wouldn’t want to rush into the next phase of their relationship. “With grad school and a lot going on, life is just crazy right now,” the insider continued. “They both know any major change like moving in together would add even more to their plate. All she craves is normalcy!”

I was going to wait until west coast aired to post this, but I am too impatient. So here it goes! The secret is finally out!!! Colton, you truly have my heart ♥️ Walking into this experience, I honestly wasn’t sure that true love could come from it. It hasn’t necessarily been the easiest road to get to where we are, but if that’s what it took to get here, then every single twist and turn has been undeniably WORTH IT. The last 4 months, just focusing on “us” have been amazing and you have become my best friend. You have shown me the purest, strongest love that any girl could ask for. You jumped a fence, took a risk, and challenged the “rules” to fight for us. I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel to have you by my side. I am so excited to see what is next for us in this new phase of our “journey”… I’d jump a thousand fences for you and “like, I know, I KNOW”😉 that I love you more than words, point blank♥️ ps. you still give me butterflies 🦋
We love seeing these two so happy, even if they are taking it day by day!
