Bachelor Clayton Echard Admits His Journey to Find Love 'Wasn't Perfect' But 'I Followed My Heart'

I was cautiously optimistic, but there were so many incredible women,” シャード, 28, 人々に伝えます. “I just promised myself I would be transparent and not hold back. And I followed my heart.

まだ, the former football player says he wasn’t prepared to have intense feelings for more than one woman.

I promised myself I wouldn’t fall in love in love with multiple women but I fell in love with three,” 彼は言い​​ます. “At that point I accepted it but I realized I was going to have to stop using absolutes. I handled it to the best of my ability. 完璧ではありませんでした! I learned a lot of lessons. And that’s life.
