[Bachelor in Paradise Spoiler Warning: This report spoils what happened between Aaron and Genevieve in Paradise and where their relationship stands now.]
However, based on a series of Instagram photos obtained by Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, it appears Aaron is currently dating a San Diego-based woman whom he began spending time with at least nine months ago.
"It's pretty clear she's making it known on her Instagram that her and Aaron are a thing," Carbone said on the November 10 episode of his podcast.
Carbone did not reveal the mystery woman's identity since she's not a member of Bachelor Nation, but he said he learned a couple of days ago that Aaron is definitely currently dating and/or hooking up with the woman.
Carbone even went as far as to call this woman in question Aaron's "new girlfriend."
"And based on some of her IG posts," Carbone wrote in a November 10 blog posting which was released shortly after his podcast, "[it] seems like this is someone who's been around for a while."
Earlier this week, the woman posted a photo of a vase filled with red and white roses and lilies. She tagged Aaron's Instagram handle along with a red heart emoji, insinuating The Bachelorette alum had bought her the flowers for her birthday and they have a romantic relationship.
The woman also posted several photos from her birthday night out. The celebration apparently included Aaron's Bachelor in Paradise buddies Logan Palmer and Jacob Rapini, and in one image, Aaron was kissing the woman on the cheek.
While it's not a big deal for Aaron to be dating someone new five months after his Bachelor in Paradise stint, Carbone also found a suspicious picture the woman had posted on Instagram 18 weeks ago.
In the Instagram posting Carbone obtained from July, the woman and Aaron were at the beach together and Aaron had his arm tightly around her as they posed with a group of apparent male and female friends.
"If my math is correct, looks to be right after he got back from BIP filming. 18 weeks ago from now is around beginning of July, and BIP filmed basically all of June," Carbone explained in his blog.

The woman also posted a photo with Aaron in Summer 2021 from when they apparently took a trip to Tulum, Mexico together.
In the photo, the pair seem to be enjoying a private outing at Cenotes Casa Tortuga, where guests can swim in cenote pools. The pair also appear affectionate in the Tulum photo, sitting side-by-side in swimsuits with the woman's arm around Aaron.
"There's nothing that I've found from right before he left for BIP filming," Carbone clarified in his blog.
"But I'm just being realistic here. Aaron is no different than a lot of the guys in this franchise. Plenty of them go on the main show and BIP with women back home that are basically put on 'hold,' or they have in the back of their minds if things don't work out."
When taking into account Aaron had dated this woman last summer and then reunited with her right after filming and is currently hanging out with her, it's possible Aaron never officially ended their relationship and the woman was waiting for his return from Paradise.
The spoiler blogger thinks Aaron had "played" Genevieve and used her for roses and was never interested in having a serious relationship with her.
"[It] kind of explains his [hot and cold] behavior with her. One minute he's telling her he's not just falling in love with her, but that he IS in love with her. Then a day later he's fighting with her again," Carbone wrote.
"It just screams to me he knew he had someone back home and was just doing whatever he could to stay on the beach as long as he could."
Aaron and Genevieve began dating on Bachelor in Paradise before "The Split" twist, and once they reunited after a week-long separation, they decided to be exclusive and not date anybody else.
However, the lovebirds have been getting into explosive fights on the show, with Aaron having moments of anger and insecurity. At one point, Aaron got upset over the idea he might have been Genevieve's second option or fallback choice behind Justin Glaze.
But Genevieve has assured the bachelor she's "all in" on him and crazy about him.
"I do not want to lose Aaron. It would actually crush me to lose him... I am falling in love with Aaron, and I'm terrified, actually. I'm really scared," Genevieve said in a confessional.
But Genevieve got a little upset over Aaron treating Paradise "like a bro vacation," which sparked an argument that resulted in Genevieve packing her bags and nearly quitting the show.
Aaron lectured Genevieve about how he wanted to have a good time and be happy, and when Genevieve insisted she just wanted to be a part of that, the pair made up and passionately kissed each other.
Prior to the fourth Rose Ceremony of the season, Aaron expressed to Genevieve how he was in love with her, and Genevieve said, "I love you back," which made Aaron feel like he was finally doing something right on the show.
Bachelor in Paradise continues to air on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8PM ET/PT until its November 22 finale on ABC.
