'A Bit Of A Heartbreaker': The Reason Jessie Ended A 10-Year Relationship Right Before 'The Bachelor'
Bachelor Matt Agnew might have farewelled contestant Jessie Frederikson at last night's rose ceremony, but you won't see her popping up on any dating apps.
Speaking to 10 daily after her elimination, Jessie explained that before she signed up for 'The Bachelor' she'd been in a relationship for 10 years.
"It was a bit of a heartbreaker, " Jessie said.
"We were together since we were teenagers, and I wanted to settle down. There was no engagement or anything. It’d been 10 years, so I guess we just grew apart in the end, because of that lack of commitment."
The 30-year-old said that she just wanted "that next step" but after failing to score a rose from Matt, she won't be turning to her phone to search for true love.
"I’ve never gone on the Tinder and Bumble thing, and I was kind of a bit scared about men these days, they can just go and swipe on 10,000 women a night if they want, they can go on a date with a different girl every night," Jessie told 10 daily.
"I just thought ‘The Bachelor’ probably wasn’t on my to-do list, at ALL, but I thought, if we’ve got a team of producers picking the perfect man in Australia, I’m gonna have a chance at him," she said.
She continued on to say that while dating apps might involve "a few texts" that end without actually meeting anyone in person, connecting with someone face-to-face was much more her style.
"When you meet someone out and you have a good chat, see each other’s mannerisms and stuff like that, I don’t know.
"Men don’t go out and talk to you these days because they think they can get it on their phone, which is sad," she said.
Best of luck out there, Jessie!
