He Saw Too Much
It sounds like the way they met was their ultimate demise. “He didn’t know why he couldn’t love me. I just think the show was too hard for someone to get over,” the season 11 leading lady explained.

The Real Deal
She was sure to add, “I want to reiterate to people, what you saw on social media was real and what we had was real love. But when it comes to roadblocks, and those fundamental values and again, getting through things together, I just don’t think we were on the same page — and it’s painful to admit that.”

This Is Goodbye
It concluded, “Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time.”
“No, I wasn’t with Shawn,” Kaitlyn explained about the timing of meeting her new beau. “Shawn and I were broken up but not to the public … but, we were.”

There’s One Thing
That’s not to say he puts his lady love on a pedastal. When asked if he calls her out on “bulls–t,” Kaitlyn explained his one pet peeve. “He hates when I clap back at trolls … I love a good clapback. I live for it,” she said. Fair enough!
