A reality star recently revealed that she misses her ex-boyfriend, Clayton Echard. The admission came from Susie Evans, who met and fell in love with Echard during his season of The Bachelor.
Echard and Evans ended up dating at the end of the season, but they didn’t get engaged in the finale. Instead, Echard and Evans decided to try their relationship in the real world. And while things seemed to be going well between them, they announced their split six months later.
The two haven’t had much contact since the breakup, but have both been very open and honest about their feelings and their decision to break up. And on Dec. 19, 2022, Evans openly answered some relationship questions that came through her Instagram Stories during an “Ask Me Anything.”
Here’s what you need to know:
Evans said that Echard was “a wonderful part” of her life
During her AMA, Evan revealed a few things about her now-ex-boyfriend. Not only did she say she misses him, but she also revealed that the two talk a bit these days and that he was her “closest friend” for the past year.
“Do you miss your ex?” someone asked Evans. She shared a photo of herself with Echard, which she says had never been shared before.
“Meh… kidding. Naturally! He was a wonderful part of my life,” Evans replied. “He’s probably got a lot less gray hair now that he’s rid of me! But really, of course I miss him, he’s been my best friend for the past year and we’ve been through a lot together and I know we’ll both have a special place in each other’s hearts. And now that we’re talking again, I can keep roasting it. (But you still can’t…just me),” she wrote.
Echard saw Evans tag him in the post and shared it on his own Instagram Stories.
“A gray hair grew when I saw you tagged me in a story,” he wrote, adding the cry-before-laugh emoji. “Next time, a warning would be nice…that’s all.”
Evans hasn’t moved on to anyone new
It seems like many fans have been curious about Evan’s dating life, as evidenced by the questions that came through her AMA. The former reality star revealed she hasn’t actually gone out on dates yet.
“Especially because my armpits start to sweat every time,” she admitted. “And I still count on finding out that I’m actually a long princess and can only date royalty anyway…” she joked.
When someone else asked Evans about the rumors that she had a boyfriend, she answered directly.
“I feel like the truth usually comes out eventually, and if it doesn’t, well. Having an alleged boyfriend who doesn’t exist isn’t going to stop me from finding a real boyfriend… hopefully, at least,” she said.
Evans also offered advice to someone who asked how she knew when it’s “time to start dating again after a breakup.”
“I feel you… I’ve always been very generous with the amount of time I give myself before I go back out there. I think it depends on the relationship and your mental health/personal wellbeing at the end of your other relationship,” Evans said, later adding, “However, I don’t think it’s ever too early. As long as you’re healed and emotionally available, I say rip the band-aid off!”
