A long, long, long, long time ago, Clare Crawley was The Bachelorette, and she promptly blew up her own time on the show to run off into the sunset with the man who “showed up for her,” Dale Moss. They seemed to be set for happily ever after, until Moss blindsided everyone, Crawley included, and announced their split in a “mutual” statement on Instagram in late January.

“I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways. We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time,” the since-deleted post read.

Crawley confirmed that news of their split was also news to her, saying “I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this.”

Everyone thought the pair was done for good, until a few weeks ago when the paparazzi caught Crawley and Moss out together on the beach in Florida.

Remember on America’s Next Top Model when Tyra Banks threw her “we were rooting for you” tantrum? That’s basically how Bachelor Nation reacted when the photos were first released on TMZ. Wounds were further salted when Reality Steve, World’s No. 1 Crawley Stan, shared photos and videos of the pair holding hands and enjoying a nice walk, all smiles.

(UPDATE): Clare and Dale together in Venice, Florida today.

Walking around mask-less hand-in-hand, what on earth is going on here?

The couple’s reunion was all but confirmed February 24 when the Daily Mail caught them on the beach in Florida, looking like, well, a couple. They were kissing, hugging and touching in the PDA-filled video footage and photos of them. Crawley was also wearing a sparkler on her ring finger but we can’t tell if it’s the Neil Lane engagement ring Moss gave her.

Instagram breakup be damned, it seems! Neither of them has actually confirmed the reunion, so we’re still waiting to hear what really happened. We’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
