Even though Micah Lussier and Paul Peden didn’t end up as husband and wife after the “Love is Blind” finale, they still tried to make things work. The former lovebirds told Entertainment Tonight they gave each other space to reconcile with their emotions before giving their relationship another whirl.
“We decided that we were going to try, and we eventually did try,” Micah dished, noting that while it lasted “a couple of months,” it was still doomed right from the start. “At that point, we were doing long distance and what was really hard about that was that the foundation was such a mess.” Paul also shared that it had been their plan all along. “We knew if we weren’t able to say yes, then we wanted to date,” he explained. “But I think what we didn’t anticipate was the emotional backlash within ourself like, ‘Oh s***, that was really tough.'”
But he confirmed with E! News that, ultimately, they couldn’t handle managing a long-distance relationship, leading to the demise of their romance. “The distance between us was too challenging. That seems to have been the primary motivator,” he shared, noting that there may be another underlying reason they couldn’t pinpoint. “There might be more to it, honestly,” he added. “There might be a reason why I said no, there might be a reason why we’re not dating. That’s a little unclear at the moment.”
