‘Bachelor’ Ben finally reveals why he dumped his fiancée Courtney in her darkest moments. Do YOU think he did the right thing?

For the first time since his second proposal to Courtney Robertson, Bachelor Ben Flajnik reveals what really happened during those troubled times in February.

On Ben’s final blog post for People.comhe openly discusses why he broke off the engagement with Courtney. Finally, some insight on the madness!

“At one point the pressure became too much and I told her I needed a break. Courtney was cool enough to allow me time to clear my head. I became worried about staying in a relationship that had so much negativity surrounding it, so I eventually called off the engagement and we broke up,” Ben writes. “Fortunately, that breakup didn’t last long. The love I feel for her, love that I couldn’t deny even amidst all the bad press and lack of public support, brought me back to her.”

Well, since the finale on March 12, Courtney has been strolling around L.A. flaunting her engagement ring, so we’re assuming things are going well for the couple. I still think it’s a big red flag that Ben left Courtney when she was being attacked by the press, though.
