It was the whirlwind romance that just wasn't meant to be. Bachelor in Paradise's Connor Saeli and Whitney Fransway, who had quite possibly the most last-minute romance the show has ever seen, have called it quits after just two months of dating, according to People.
The two spent some time in Mexico together after leaving the BIP digs, and Connor told People he flew to Whitney's hometown of LA to be with her. They both quickly realized, though, that their relationship was moving faster than they'd like and decided to call it off. "We started having some serious talks in terms of seeing a future," Connor told People.
But if you're one of those people who was truly rooting for Connor and Whitney to make it work — like all of these lovely Twitter users ahead — don't give up on the couple. Connor's not closing the door on the relationship just yet. "That's something we'll see in time. You never know what could happen down the road," he said.
In the meantime, let's reminisce about just how dramatic their time on BIP was. Connor popped up in Paradise when he attended Chris and Krystal Randone's wedding. That's where he met Caelynn Miller-Keyes, leading him to join the cast. What we didn't know until later, however, was that Connor was also talking to Whitney at the wedding and Caelynn pulled him away. In that short time, Connor felt a connection with Whitney and said that he couldn't stop thinking about her, even when he was dating Caelynn. Caelynn ultimately ended things with Connor when Dean Unglert came back to Paradise to ask her to leave with him.
We first heard mention of Whitney when Connor said that he was hoping she would come to Paradise, but, if she didn't, he would leave. Connor opted to go home . . . only for Whitney to arrive 25 minutes later, and the two unknowingly passed each other in their respective cars. When Whitney arrived with a date card and found out that he was gone, she went to Connor's hotel, and the two kissed into the sunset.
During those five seconds that Connor was in his hotel room, he was apparently "getting ready to send Whitney a DM on Instagram right before she knocked on my door. Just trying to shoot my shot."
