"I think I'm at the point in my life where I can move on and hopefully find Mrs. Right sooner rather than later," Lowe toldThe Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview.
When Lowe -- the bachelor who was eliminated during Monday night's episode and left the Rose Ceremony heartbroken because he had firmly believed Maynard was going to be his wife -- was asked how long it's going to take him to completely get over Maynard, he said, "I don't think it's going to take all that much longer."
"I mean, don't get me wrong. It's not like I'm dwelling on our relationship or the lack there of, but I certainly still have a lot of strong feelings for her. And part of that means I want the best for her. So hopefully whether it's [Arie Luyendyk Jr.] or [Jef Holm], she's very happy and they have a happy life together."
However, Maynard's decision to deny Lowe one of her final two roses completely caught him off-guard.
"Never once did I think I wouldn't receive a rose, and so it was a shocker and it was definitely tough to swallow," Lowe explained, adding that he didn't receive the closure he needed that night before going home.
"At the time? No. I think I probably needed more closure than that... As the first few weeks at home in Dallas progressed, it was tough for me. But after several weeks, I realized my wife is not going to have any doubt that I'm the person she wants to spend the rest of her life with. And Emily obviously had doubts, and that's okay. We just weren't meant to be, so I don't fault her at all for that."
Lowe also said he has no regrets about his time on the show and wouldn't have done anything differently.
"No, I was true to myself the whole time and I think I was genuine and authentic, and so, I wouldn't change a thing," Lowe told The Reporter.
