After Cassie left Colton on The Bachelor, it wasn't clear whether or not they had a future together as a couple. Now, fans know that the two of them are in love — but they're not engaged just yet. Colton gave Cassie a symbolic "final rose" at the live show on Tuesday, but there wasn't a proposal. It sounds like the couple are just enjoying dating and taking their relationship one step at a time.
Still, even though they're not engaged, it sounds like the two of them are on more equal footing now than they were during the show's filming. In a clip of Colton and Cassie's relationship post-Spain, Cassie read him one of her old diary entries she'd written on the show. It was clear how much she felt for him, even back then — and she added a new message about her current feelings, too. "I want you to know that I love you more than anything, and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world," Cassie said to Colton in the clip.
During the live show, Cassie also told Chris Harrison that engagement is "definitely something we've talked about," referring to her and Colton. The couple also shared that Colton has moved to Los Angeles to be closer to Cassie, but they aren't living together just yet.
And as for the question that The Bachelor's been incessant about — to the point of being really uncomfortable — this season, it sounds like Colton is no longer a virgin. He didn't share details about his and Cassie's fantasy suite or their physical relationship after the show's filming, but he also didn't deny that something's happened between them.
Frankly, it's not fans' business (and never was), but the finale in particular really wouldn't let the topic go. Hopefully, now that these two are free to share their love without the cameras rolling, the discussion surrounding Colton's virginity is long in the past.
