As part of one of the few successful Bachelor Nation couples, Bryan Abassolo knows a thing or two about how a relationship works.
“I have the feeling that it’s been a long time, but then we really think about it, the time has also flown by,” the doctor continued us weekly’s Here for the Right Reasons podcast on meetings Rachel Lindsay in Season 13 of The Bachelorette in 2017. “But I think we just grew together so much. Apparently we were engaged for a few years. We’ve been married for a few years now. We have a new house, we have our dogs, children are also in our future. We have a lot of great things going on right now. Our careers are thriving, we’re both in a good place.”
Abasolo, who married Lindsay in August 2019, noted that the couple prioritizes their relationship.
“We can’t lose sight of why we got together in the first place, and that was love, right?” he said Us. “So we made appointments. Even if it’s just the most important thing, I think it’s important that we spend time together. The pastor [who] actually performed at our wedding, we did premarital counseling with him and he mentioned how important it is for you to go out with your partner, always take care of your partner and take time to share those quality intimate moments together to spend in which you can grow couple.”
Abasolo’s Talking It Out Podcast Co-Host, mike johnsonfor his part, confirmed to us that he’s single – despite photos of him cuddling up with a mystery woman at a recent baseball game.
“This was a fan asking to take a picture and she specifically said, ‘Can we make my ex jealous?'” he said bachelorette Season 15 alum explained Us. “I was just trying to be a nice guy.”
Johnson added that he’s only dated “a few times” since his time on Hannah Brown’s season Bachelors in paradise season 6
“[I’m] Single and I’m focused on being the best version of myself,” he said. “I need to keep growing”
Abasolo noted that he and Lindsay tried to play the matchmaker for Johnson.
“From the start, my goal on the bucket list was to find this man [the] perfect woman because he’s such a great guy [and] has so much going for him,” said Abasolo. “I mean, honestly, he should have been the Bachelor if [you] really asked me but i just think he deserves the world. One day it will make a woman very, very happy.”
As Talking It Out re-releases new episodes, The Bachelorette returns for season 19 on ABC Monday, July 11 at 8 p.m. ET.
