Romance has blossomed between former The Bachelor stars Chris Soules and Victoria Fuller. The relationship quietly started a few months ago, and now she is opening up about how well things are going for them.
Chris and Victoria surprised everybody by getting together this spring. She quietly traveled from Virginia to Iowa and stayed with him for a while. Then, about a month ago they popped up at a cafe in her neck of the woods. Now, for what seems to be the first time, she is opening up publicly about her relationship.
The Bachelor cast-off, who was initially on Peter Weber's season and seemed connected to drama fairly often, talked with People about her current status.
"We're really happy. The last few months have been really special for us. We're enjoying each other!" the former Bachelor contestant detailed.
Early on, the buzz was that he slid into her private messages via Instagram. However, the reality TV star revealed that wasn't actually how it went down. Apparently, it was a nudge from fellow castmate Kelsey Weier that got the ball rolling on this pairing. Kelsey, who also lives in Iowa, apparently told her fellow bachelorette that she thought the two should connect.
When she flew to Iowa to meet The Bachelor star in April, they were both quite nervous. Luckily, she says that things went well.
"But it wasn't awkward. It felt really natural. And immediately, I was like, 'I really like him!' I felt a genuine connection," she explained.
His home state was a big topic during his season of The Bachelor because of the remoteness of his family's farm, located in the small town of Arlington. However, this quiet setting apparently worked well for the new couple, allowing them to focus on their new romance and getting to know one another.
Even though things are going really well, The Bachelor stars will keep this a long-distance situation for now. It seems that she is considering a move from Virginia Beach to either Los Angeles or Nashville, while he remains in Arlington for the time being.
"We don't really have a system, but the amazing thing about him is that he never puts pressure on our relationship or wants to put a timeline on it," she said of her beau.
The two are still getting to know one another, and she loves that he's learning who she is outside of The Bachelor. Of her guy, she says he's "the best" and "a good one," and it sounds as if the two are both quite smitten with one another.
Could this surprise The Bachelor pairing actually go the distance? Chris and Victoria are only about four months into this long-distance romance, so it is really too soon to tell. However, it certainly seems as if things are going very well between the two.
