However the 31-year-old U.S. Navy Lieutenant recently relocated from Hawaii to Washington, D.C. to take a job as an advocate for Navy medicine, which he toldUs Weekly played a role in his decision to split from Maples.
"The big move coupled with the long distance relationship wasn't working for us so I decided we were better off as friends," Baldwin told Us.
While Baldwin was spotted last week at a fundraiser for the Luke's Wings veterans charity with a woman named Heather, he told the Post they're just friends and not dating.
"I went with a group of friends that night," he told the Post.
Without a woman currently on his arm, Baldwin is instead focusing his attention on advocating the need for more people in his profession.
"We need young men and women who are talented and interested in service," he told the Post. "That's the way I was raised and one of the reasons I became a doctor. It's important for the future of country that we help out in our communities."
Baldwin presented his final rose and also proposed marriage to Tessa Horst during Officer and a Gentleman's pre-taped finale broadcast last May. Horst accepted both the rose and the proposal, however the couple announced the end of their engagement last August. They split for good in September.
