Rachael Kirkconnell and Matt James seem as if they’re on a trip or out to dinner 24/7, and the pair recently spent the day in New York City.

Rachael posted pictures of their outing to her Instagram Stories, showing off her outfit and some delicious food and fun locations.

Clearly, Rachael and Matt are enjoying a summer full of traveling, with their most recent trips being a vacation to Greece and the British Virgin Islands.

The pair have been looking completely loved up, though it’s unclear if and when they will get engaged.

Bachelor Nation likes to put the pressure on since the whole point of the show is an engagement at the end, but Rachael and Matt look perfectly content to keep dating for a while longer.

Matt and Rachael are still going strong despite a temporary breakup

Matt and Rachel have been going strong despite their temporary split after filming for The Bachelor when Rachael became embroiled in a racism controversy.

Last May, Matt spoke on the Pomp podcast about Rachael giving him an ultimatum to either commit to making their relationship work or not be together.

He said, “She was like, ‘If you’re going to make this work, let’s do it. But if you’re not going to make it work, I’m going to let you do your own thing.'”

He claimed it was the push he needed, telling the podcast, “That’s really all I needed. It was an ultimatum that I needed. It’s been great. It was honestly a commitment that we made to each other that we were going to work on the relationship … there came a point in time where it was evident that my working on the relationship looked different than Rachael’s because I wasn’t really honoring that commitment that I made to working on the relationship.”

The Bachelor is currently on hiatus.
