Shawn Booth Calls Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Relationship a ‘Trauma Bond,’ Says ‘Love Is a Loose Term’


‘Love’s a Loose Term,’ says Shawn Booth of his relationship with Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Shawn Booth gave a rare interview about his time on The Bachelorette — and he doesn’t have fond memories of the ABC show or his three-year engagement to the season 11 lead, Kaitlyn Bristowe.

On Thursday, November 18, the 34-year-old personal trainer said on the “Austin AF” podcast, “I believe love is a loose term, like, looking back at it.”

“Like, there was a serious connection.”

I’m not sure if it was true love at all.

We’d still be together if it was, so I guess it wasn’t.

You’re assuming it’s love, of course.

However, you are placed in a situation where you are cut off from the rest of the world.

You can’t communicate with your friends or family.

You are unable to watch television because you do not have access to the internet.

You’re there for 12 weeks, and you’re just trying to figure out your emotions and feelings.

And you’ve got this person with whom you’re going through it.

So, yeah, I’m wondering, ‘Was it true love?’ I mean, it’s unlikely.

Because, as I previously stated, if it was, we’d probably still be together.”

Three years after he proposed on the ABC reality show, Booth and Bristowe, 36, called it quits in 2018.

“Did I have feelings for her? Of course,” he added.

“Right out of the gate, we had this connection.”

It wasn’t compelled.

We got along swimmingly and had a blast.

But, after that, the situation makes it pretty easy to fall in love — no distractions, which some people think is a good thing. Because in the real world, you have your phone, you have all these different options, and here, you’re able to focus on a relationship, which is cool.

That was the best part about not having my phone.

Not having to worry about anything, but you sit down for these interviews every day, and it’s almost like therapy, because you’re digging into your emotions and past.

But, yes, I’m not sure if it was true love.”

The Connecticut native, who lived in Nashville, Tennessee, with Bristowe for three years, said there was “a lot of pressure” to keep his relationship with the Dancing With the Stars champion going after the show ended.
