Tayshia Adams may be engaged to Zac Clark, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have other connections with the other men on the show. Ben Smith came in second place and now he’s getting emotional.
Ben Smith opens up on Instagram
Bachelorette runner-up Ben, struggled to be emotional on The Bachelorette which may have ruined his chances with Tayshia Adams completely. However, now, he’s displaying all of his emotions on a sweet Instagram post People says.
“Thank you,” Ben starts.
He continues, “Thank you for your patience. Thank you for seeing me, for always listening, and for trying your best to know on the deepest level,” he writes on Instagram to Tayshia. “I struggle. I struggle to be the person you need and I still struggle knowing what’s enough. You’re beautiful inside and out and I’m so incredibly grateful for your heart.”
He continues to talk about how he is ready for love. It’s clear he learned a lot from his time on The Bachelorette.
“What’s meant for you will find you,” he says. “And what’s meant for me? I’m ready to receive. To a deeper connection to self and ever increasing opportunity to give love.”
After Ben got sent home the first time, he ended up coming back to tell Tayshia how he really feels. That worked for a little bit and she let him stay with her.
“I am in love with you,” he says on the show to Tayshia. “Like, the life we could have together, the thought of that, it keeps me awake at night and I’m not sure what to do right now. I’m not sure what I’m asking for. I don’t even know what I’m doing. I couldn’t leave. But I just had to tell you. I see a life with you.”
Ben goes home
Unfortunately, despite this epic moment of love, Tayshia knew in her heart that Ben Smith wasn’t the one for her. She ends up sending him home.
“I care about you so much, but I just feel like my heart is with somebody else,” she says as she sends Ben home for the final time. “I feel like we missed out on a little bit of time that was very monumental.”
Ben went home and Tayshia got engaged to Zac. However, it’s clear Ben Smith really grew while he was on the show. Hopefully, he finds love soon.
