A second source echoes the same sentiments, however, notes the duo is open to rekindling their romance. Put simply, “Dale and Clare are taking things slowly and seeing where their relationship goes day by day. They are not back together officially, but working on things.”

Being in the public eye has only made things worse, per the insider.

“They are realizing that all the attention and stress after the show only hurt their relationship,” the source says. “It’s hard for any new relationship to work, but then throw in all the areas that come with everyone watching you at all times.”

“Dale and Clare love and respect one another,” the source adds, “they always will, and know that their relationship deserves that respect. They are working on things, enjoying spending time together and are seeing where things go.”

Last month, the reality TV stars shocked Bachelor Nation fans when they were spotted looking cozy in Florida.
