‘Bachelor’ Exclusive: Colton Underwood, a Venerable Expert, Says This Is the Most Valuable Dating Advice He Can Give

After dating 30 women at once on The Bachelor, it’s safe to say Colton Underwood knows a thing or two about romance. And, now that he’s found happiness with Cassie Randolph after the show, he was more than willing to shell out all the dating advice.  

When it comes to love, the 27-year-old Bachelor alum says there are two key components: trusting your gut and focusing on communication.

“The biggest dating advice I could ever give somebody is just trust your gut,” he explained during an interveiw in partnership MorningStar Farms. “I know that sounds cliché and like such a typical answer from someone from the franchise. But I just think in a relationship, you have a sense of where it’s going and you have a sense of if it’s realistic.”

Underwood went on to point out, “I think it’s always important to take a step back and analyze the relationship. Say, ‘Hey, how do I feel about this? How did that make me feel? How does this make me feel?’ And then communicate with each other.”

In fact, he credits healthy communication for the success of his own relationship. “Communication is key and it’s a big part of the reason that Cass and I are so happy together,” he said.

Underwood explained that in his partnership with Randolph, “We usually don’t let anything fester. We don’t let anything explode or become a big fight. We sort of just talk about it and we try to address it and put a plan together to sort of attack it. At the end of the day, we’re a team. We’re in this together and I think that’s key.” We’d have to agree.

Looks like Underwood might have a future in relationship coaching…
