If one rose starts to wilt, another one will begin to bloom? Clare Crawleyrevealed that she first dated her current-boyfriend Ryan DawkinsHer engagement was also in the same month. Dale MossOfficially ended.
“This picture was taken exactly one year ago,” the former Bachelorette wrote on September 25, 2022, via Instagram. “He asked me to dinner. I didn’t have an appetite. (Stressed & depressed) But I said yes to tea and a walk. Ended up laughing and smiling more than I did the entire last year combined.”
Crawley was the season 16 star on ABC’s series. She ended her stint after two weeks filming to be engaged to Moss. The proposal was broadcast in November 2020. However, Crawley and Moss split in January 2021. They were back together in February, but still had issues to work through.
“They’re still working on some issues they have to overcome but it’s not like they make it known,” a source told Us Weekly in July 2021. “They’re more private when it comes to their issues. The good thing is that they’re happy together and enjoying this time as an engaged couple. They love each other very much and care for each other.”
By September 2021, things took another turn, and they broke up again as Crawley revealed that her mother, who has dementia and Alzheimer’s, had been placed in hospice care.
“Clare has seen everything by now for what is needed for her to have closure and not look back,” a source told Usat the time. “This past week has proven to her that he’s not someone who full-heartedly cares about her. He’s putting on an act for the public because he’s all about himself and his public image.”
A rep for Moss later fired back at the suggestion that he wasn’t supportive, claiming he traveled to support Crawley in October 2021.
“Dale and Clare broke up in mid-September when Clare was in New York City spending time with him,” his rep said at the time. “Clare then chose to fly home to Sacramento and asked Dale to send her things. A couple of weeks later, Clare’s mother’s condition worsened and Dale chose to immediately fly out to Sacramento to be with her. Dale flew to Sacramento on Tuesday morning to be with Clare and her mother, as well as their family. [The following day]Dale flew to Los Angeles to fulfill a work obligation. He had every intention of returning to Sacramento to be there, but his phone number was blocked, making it impossible to contact Clare. It is unfortunate that the next time Dale heard anything from Clare, it was on social media.”
Moss has been associated with interior designer since then. Galey Alix. While Crawley quietly began seeing Dawkins in late 2021, she didn’t go public with their relationship until September 2022.
“He’s mature, career-driven and a good father,” an insider told UsAt the time. “He isn’t in it for fame, which is what makes him different from her past relationships.”
