Once they decided their relationship was over, they shared the following statement with fans.
“Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey.”
At the time, Whitney shared that she thought she was ready to date again. She must have been right because it all worked out and now she is engaged. Whitney talked about being single.
“I’m just casually dating. I don’t know that I have a specific person that I’m looking for. I think that in general it’s someone who makes me a better person, makes me happy, makes me laugh, and shares a common interest, so I don’t know if there’s a big stereotype with that.”
