After the photos caused quite a stir online, Tyler spoke out about why he and Hannah were hanging out and explained where they stand now. He said that they are not dating and they’re struggling to define their new friendship after they almost got engaged on The Bachelorette.

In a recent interview, Tyler revealed that he and Hannah haven’t been able to define their relationship. Hannah turned down Tyler as he was about to propose, then said she wanted another chance, but Tyler wasn’t too eager to let her back in.
“We need to learn how to be friends. You know what I mean? Like we struggled, you know, with our relationship and trying to figure out what it is,” Tyler explained to US Weekly, revealing that it’s important for them to be friends right now.
When asked if they had closed the door completely on their relationship, Tyler explained that they were working on having a strong friendship, because that’s more important for them right now.
“We’re in a great place right now with each other and it’s great to be able to hang out, you know, grab dinner, it’s fun. Hannah’s an amazing person and it’s good to be in a better place than we’ve been,” he explained. He also discussed the pair’s time quarantining together in Florida, saying, “We were just trying to be friends that we couldn’t even figure that out then.”
Fans first learned about their possibly rekindling back in March when Hannah was spotted at a Florida airport with Tyler.
