The clock on their reality TV romance is still ticking, and despite the odds, The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnik and fiancee Courtney Robertson are confident that their relationship will outlast the many (many!) others that fizzled shortly after the ABC show. Their strategy? “Taking it slow.”
Just now getting settled into “normal life,” and enjoying a date night in Hollywood on Thursday (March 29), Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson tell Us Weekly, “Now that the show’s over and the star’s fading…[it's] wonderful for us.”
Attending Svedka’s Second Annual Night of a Billion Reality Stars bash, the couple recently returned to the States after a five-day vacay in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and are enjoying getting to know one another even more.
“The thing that people don’t know is that when the show was airing we spent a lot of time together, and we were off almost every weekend,” Flajnik explains. “We got to know each other really well.”
“He’s met some of my friends in San Francisco and I’ve been with his,” Robertson adds.
Though things seem to be going well between the two, don’t hold your breath for details on their wedding plans.
“No date set,” Robertson admits, explaining that they “love each other very much,” but putting the wedding on hold “took the pressure off.”
“We kind of looked back at some of the other Bachelor relationships that didn’t work out and the reason for that is you have so much pressure to move in together and set a date, and all this kind of stuff… Let’s figure out who we are together before we do any of that and take the pressure off,” says Ben.
One thing that has been decided about the wedding is the location…sort of.
Flajnik says that when they’re ready to say, “I do,” the ceremony will be in “Arizona or California somewhere.”
What do you think: Will Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson end up getting married?
