The two took to social media on Thursday to share the sad news.
First off I just want to say that I have experienced some of the best days of my life these past 6 months! I was blessed to have met and date an amazing woman and her daughter, who have made me a better person in all areas of my life. Unfortunately Michelle and I have decided it was in the best interest for both of us to move on from our relationship. Michelle and Brielle will always hold a special spot in my heart and I wish all the best for them. Michelle is someone I shared a relationship with but also someone I will always respect and consider a life long friend. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to go on "Bachelor in Paradise" and to experience such amazing things with a beautiful woman. Those feeling and memories are something I will always cherish! I personally want to say "THANK YOU" from the bottom of my heart to all the amazing fans who showed so much love and support for Michelle and I. You will never truly understand how much that meant to me! I look forward to what the future holds and will continue to always listen and follow my heart! Much LOVE & RESPECT Cody Code xoxo
Hand over the tissues, please.
It seemed like a match made in paradise when the two coupled up on the reality dating show this summer. OK, so maybe not at first. Don't forget how clingy Cody seemed to be. And he had a thing for Clare at first, not Michelle. But they eventually found their way to one another and then it all began to click.
Despite the split, it's clear the two have nothing but the utmost respect for one another. We just hope they actually mean what they're writing on social media.
"Michelle is someone I shared a relationship with but also someone I will always respect and consider a life long friend," Cody wrote on Instagram.
We think if anyone can stay friends with an ex, it would be Cody, who has consistently come across on the show as an upstanding guy. (If not also a little lost on his hopeless romantic love train.)
Michelle echoed his sentiments, "I feel very blessed and fortunate to have shared such beautiful memories with such an incredible guy."
Maybe it was the timing. Maybe it was the chemistry. Maybe it was the long-term goals. Who knows what reason ultimately led to the end of this relationship. We're still not giving up hope that these two will find their way back to one another.
Someone hand me another tissue, please and thanks.
