'Bachelor in Paradise's Kendall Long Was Blindsided by Her Breakup With Joe Amabile

It’s been a sad couple of weeks for me Bachelor Nation. I’ve yet to fully recover from the news of Bachelor in Paradise alums Kendall Long and Joe Amabile (aka Grocery Store Joe)’s breakup, because dammit, I needed them to be cute together on Valentines Day! The couple announced their split on BachelorNation.com two weeks ago by writing:

Now that a little time has passed, Kendall has started to reveal some of the details of the split. On her Down to Date podcast, she shared that her breakup with Joe came out of the blue.

“I did not see it coming,” she said. “Every relationship has issues, but I feel like—with Joe and I—we were best friends. Everything was fun, we were getting a dog together. We had just moved in… Ultimately what happened was that Joe felt like he would have a better [life] in Chicago.”

And if that wasn’t already depressing enough for ya, Kendall admitted that she started dreaming of wedding planning with Joe since things were beginning to get really serious with him.

“I thought Joe and I were going to literally be married. If anyone knows me, I’m not the person that plans my wedding and I was literally doing that with Joe,” she explained. “Something weird about ending something with some that you thought you were going to marry [is] you almost feel like you have such a better idea of what you’re looking for.”

The good news here is that Kendall seems to be handling the breakup maturely. Kendall doesn’t hold Joe’s move to Chicago against him and can even understand why he wanted to do it.

“In no way can I ever be upset with him and have [resentment] toward him changing his mind and choosing to move because I understand the stresses of living somewhere like L.A. away from your family. That was also a huge reason why I didn’t see myself moving from L.A. at least at that point in my life,” she added.

Now if you need me, I’m gonna cope with the sad details of Kendall and Joe’s breakup by trying to remember all the Bachelor and Bachelorette couples that are still together.
