“We can’t lose sight of why we came together in the first place and that was love, right?” he told Use. “So we planned dates. Even if it’s just the most basic thing, just as far as we’re spending quality time together, I think that’s what matters. The pastor [who] actually performed at our wedding, we did premarital counseling with him and he mentioned that it was so important for you to date your partner, always pursue your partner and set time aside to have those quality intimate moments with each other where you can grow as a couple.”

Abasolo’s “Talking It Out” podcast cohost, Mike Johnson, for his part, confirmed to Us that he’s single — despite photos of him cuddling up with a mystery woman at a recent baseball game.

“That was a fan that asked to take a picture and she specifically said, ‘Can we make my ex jealous?’” the BacheloretteSeason 15 alum explained Us. “I was just trying to be a nice guy.”

Johnson added that he’s dated exclusively “a couple times” since his time on Hannah Brown’s season and Bachelor in ParadiseSeason 6.

“[I’m] single as of right now and I am focusing on being the best version of myself,” he said. “I gotta continue to grow.”

Abasolo mentioned that he and Lindsay had tried to play matchmaker with Johnson.

“Ever since the beginning, it was my goal on the bucket list to find this man [the] perfect woman because he’s such a great guy [and] has so much going for him,” Abasolo said. “I mean, honestly he should have been the Bachelor if [you]I was really honored to have been asked by him, but I believe he deserves it all. He’s gonna make a woman very, very happy one day.”
