Bachelor Nation hasn't heard much from Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk recently, but that's apparently because they're busy living their lives together and being in love.

Raven and Adam, who met on Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise and left the show dating, are getting very serious.

According to a source close to the pair, Adam may be preparing to pop the question soon to his girlfriend of one year, Us Weekly reported.


"Adam and Raven are so happy and super exited to see what happens in Paradise this year. Things couldn't be going better for them," the source told Us.

"They were at a wedding in Arkansas together last weekend and they kept telling friends than an engagement is coming soon. It just seems like the next step because things are going so smoothly."

Raven posted a photo of Adam and herself from the wedding and captioned it, "The love of my life."

Raven, an Arkansas native, and Adam, who currently resides in Dallas, TX, have made a long-distance relationship work ever since falling in love in Mexico last summer.

Adam's family was reportedly hesitant about his relationship with Raven at first, but the couple has turned all of their loved ones into believers.

"They've really come to get to know her and now everyone gets along well, and both of their families fully support their relationship," the source added.

"People close to them wouldn't be surprised if they get engaged sometime in the summer or around Paradise season 5!"

Raven and Adam spoke candidly about their romance and the potential of moving in together during a November 2017 appearance on Bachelor in Paradise co-star Dean Unglert's podcast Help! I Suck at Dating.

"We've had talks about moving in together and where the relationship is going to turn from there. Eventually, you do want to settle down... Every time we see each other, the ball is moved forward a little bit at a time as far as progressing our relationship," Adam revealed, adding that living together is "an end goal."

"Our end goal is to not always be long distance," Raven said. "If you're in a long-distance relationship, it's not going to be forever, and if it is, maybe you shouldn't be [in one]... But Adam knows if he ever cheats on me, I will cut him."


Raven also told Dean at the time that she and Adam made sure to see each other once every two weeks, keeping their boundaries and communication wide open. 

Prior to meeting on Bachelor in Paradise 4, Raven competed on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor in 2017 and finished as the runner-up. And Adam was a contestant on Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette last year.
