Bachelor in Paradise: Amanda Stanton Working on Book, Josh Murray Considers Taking Legal Action Against Former Fiancee>>>
“When we were on the show, it felt like I had met the love of my life,” Stanton told Us Weekly. “It’s really hard, I think, to move on from that. I think we’re both having a hard time moving on.”
Stanton first competed for Ben Higgins on The Bachelor season 20 while Murray first got engaged to Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette season 10. The pair met and eventually got engaged in the third season of Bachelor in Paradise. However, their relationship off-screen was very different. “There’s a lot of things and situations in the real world you don’t experience while you’re there [in Paradise],” she said.
Murray moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Orange County to be with Stanton and her two young daughters, Kinsley and Charlie, but they broke up last December. In February, the couple was spotted getting cozy in Los Angeles– Murray even said that he’s single but has been spending some time with the single mom and is even open to reconciliation. On March 20, however, Murray called the cops on Stanton to settle a dispute over a car. Since then, Stanton has been working on her book while Murray has threatened to take legal action against his former fiancee.
Though her relationship with Murray didn’t turn out as expected, Stanton remains hopeful about love as she tries to adjust to life as a single woman. She’s even considering finding love on dating apps.
“I feel like this is the age where it gets really hard,” she admitted. “I remember a couple years ago, I was like, ‘Online dating is so weird. I would never do that.’ And now it’s like, ‘I need to do that to meet someone. I get it now!'”
Meanwhile, Stanton has also been rumored to be heading to Bachelor in Paradise for its fourth season.
