Five months after former ‘Bachelor’ Chris Soules split from Whitney Bischoff, it seems he may just be looking for a new lady to love! Chris stopped by the HollywoodLife.com podcast to reveal that he is ready to get back into the dating world!
Chris Soules, 33, stole the hearts of millions as the small-town farmer on The Bachelorette and then stole the heart of Whitney Bischoff, 30, on season 19 of The Bachelor. When things didn’t work out between the two of them in May 2015, Chris took some time to focus on his farm in Arlington, Iowa. But after several months on his own, Chris feels it may be time to go back on the prowl! Take a listen to the HollywoodLife.com podcast to hear exactly what he said — and find out if you could be the next lucky lady!
As anyone would after a breakup, Chris admitted that while he’s open to it now, he wasn’t exactly itching to jump right back into the dating life. “I’m ready to date, but there was a while there where dating and I were…I had no interest in dating,” he said. “After you date 30 women over a two month period and having an engagement and all of that take place — I think any human being would want to take a little time and just sort of gather their thoughts and get back to the real life and get back to me. And that’s what I’m doing and focusing on things that I love and being patient in the dating world.”
While Chris may be beginning his new search for love in the near future, he did admit that he’s mainly focused on his career in agriculture. Living and working in such a small town can be extremely limiting when it comes to dating, but Chris said it should hopefully be easier as “a lot more doors are open” thanks to his exposure on The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars. And when it comes to finding someone that enjoys farming as much as he does, Chris isn’t so concerned about that!
“I’m open to that, but it’s hard to find,” he said. “So I’m more interested in finding a person to fall in love with who’s my best friend and that I have a lot in common with, but it doesn’t have to be farm related.”
Sounds like Chris is pretty open-minded with girls! He also wasn’t afraid to admit that before his television fame, he was actually on Tinder — imagine running across his profile! Although he didn’t say if he’s still on it, he may just be interested in trying again now that he’s ready to date! So if you happen to be in the Iowa area, you never know…you may just have a chance to right swipe a former Bachelor!
In the rest of our podcast with Chris, he also opened up about what it’s really like to be the Bachelor, his “terrifying” DWTS experience, and dating life in Iowa. Considering Chris is ready to date again, listening to what he has to say is a great way to get a feel for whether he’s someone you should go after…just saying!
