Our Bachelor in Paradise hearts are breaking, as fan favorites, Cody Sattler and Michelle Money, confirm their breakup.
The two took to social media on Thursday to share the sad news.
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.
