Bachelor Peter Weber is speaking out for the first time about his current relationship with Kelley Flanagan. And there’s a lot to unpack.
ICYMI: Weber and his former flame made headlines last month when they were spotted doing the opposite of social distancing in Chicago. The 28-year-old pilot and the 27-year-old tax attorney were seen walking and majorly flirting along the Windy City’s Riverline, despite stay-at-home orders.
Lucky for us, on a recent episode of Nick Viall's podcast, The Viall Files, the pilot opened up about reconnecting with Flanagan.
"There's a lot of stuff that people don't know. My relationship with Kelley has been... serendipitous. You go all the way back to the very beginning—us running into each other before any of this stuff started. Obviously, the show happened and it didn't work out for us. Over the Super Bowl, I was in Miami and I had the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl with my brother, and I ran into her on the Saturday night before the Super Bowl. Within our relationship on the show, it didn't really play out in the best way for us. It just wasn't gonna work on the show.”
And as for their current relationship status? Well, it seems like they are taking things slow...for now.
"Are we dating? No,” he continued. “Do I love spending time with her? Absolutely. We're not dating. Could I see that in the future? Yeah, of course. I'd be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened. Of anyone, I'm the last person that needs to rush into any kind of relationship. I just had an engagement that didn't work out. I just was trying to pursue things with another woman that didn't work out. That's why right now, I'm just taking it really, really slow.”
All we have to say is: Thank you, Nick Viall.
