The Bachelor in Paradise alums met three years in the past on the present and have been pals ever since, however not too long ago determined to give a severe relationship a strive. They informed Entertainment Tonight that they wished to be sure their romance was stable earlier than overtly declaring their love for each other.
Haibon revealed that whereas he referred to Iaconetti, 30, as “the love of my life” prior to saying the three particular phrases, the couple took six weeks into their relationship to say “I love you.”
“He would even say ‘love of my life’ before he said ‘I’m in love with you,’” she informed the outlet in a narrative posted on Saturday, June 2.
“I wanted to make sure,” Haibon, 29, stated. “I wanted us to date for a little while before we said those words to make sure this was real. And I wanted it to be important. We were in bed, we were lying there. I couldn’t wait anymore! We were talking throughout that entire weekend about how much we liked each other, and I was like, ‘I don’t like you, I love you!”
He added: “I was super nervous to say it. I was like, ‘I hope she says it back.’ I said, ‘I’m completely obsessed with you, I’m addicted to you.’”
“For me, it was really just love at first sight,” she stated. “I don’t know when in the past couple months did I decide [I wanted to be with him]. I always knew we had something I’d never experienced before. We’re similar and different in the most compatible ways. We really complement each other.”
“We knew that there was a lot of backstory and history with us and we really wanted to date and just have a relaxed, easygoing relationship because we’ve never been boyfriend/girlfriend throughout our entire relationship,” Haibon added.
After maintaining their relationship below wraps for a couple of months, the pair revealed in May on her web series The Story of Us that they had been relationship.
