JoJo Fletcher is taking her nationally-televised rejection in stride…
JoJo spoke with PEOPLE Magazine about breaking up with Ben Higgins and moving forward…
“It was really hard for me. But when I got home [from Jamaica, and her end on the show], I took a couple of weeks to myself to think about everything. The conclusion was that it happened, I was lucky to have gone through that, I learned so much and now I know what I want and I know what I deserve.”
But don’t get it twisted; the real estate developer isn’t mad at Ben for breaking her heart, even though seeing Ben last night was hard for her.
“That was a tough situation for both of us. I was super nervous but he explained it well and I have closure. I’m friends with Lauren and I think the world of Ben, and seeing them together, it made a lot more sense than I thought it would be. Watching it back, I kind of had to relive it and I definitely remember how sad I was. But I’m not bitter and I’m not angry. Ben followed his heart. Even though it didn’t work out, it still was a great relationship and I learned a lot from him.”
Sounds like the 25-year-old is going to take the lessons she learned from Higgins and apply them to her time on The Bachelorette:
“I want to find my husband. I want to find the person who will complete me and who will love me as much as I love him. I’m more ready than ever!”
But one thing’s for sure: she’s not going to use the L word twice:
“I understand loving two people at once but I definitely will make sure that it’s exactly what I’m feeling before I say it. Because I know what it’s like to have that said to you and then to potentially be disappointed and let down. So I’ll be cautious of that.”
We know you learned a hard lesson, JoJo.
