[Bachelor in Paradise Spoiler Warning: This article reveals details of Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season, so please stop reading now if you want to be surprised by Tia and Colton's dating experiences].
Tia and Colton dated briefly before Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor began airing earlier this year, but they called it quits after spending a weekend together due to bad timing.
Colton had just been cast on The Bachelorette at the time -- possibly under the assumption Tia was going to be the show's star -- and neither individual was ready to commit to a long-distance romance.
However, the Arkansas-based beauty revealed to her good friend Becca Kufrin on Monday night's The Bachelorette episode that she still had feelings for Colton from Colorado, seemingly prompting Becca's decision to send him home after hometown dates.
Colton and Tia reportedly didn't even make it to the season's final Rose Ceremony together.
"Here's the thing: I really, really like Colton. I think he's wonderful, and meeting him in person, he's all gorgeousness. And he, like, exudes being a good person," Raven explained during a recent appearance on The Morning Toast.
"But them two [together], I know Tia well enough, they don't mesh. Like, I get it. It's a great thought for them to be together, but it's not what she needs and not what he needs, but I love them both."
Prior to dating Tia and Becca, Colton, a self-proclaimed virgin, had been in only serious relationship. Becca worried Colton lacked experience in dating when she's already been engaged once before, and Raven believes Colton needs a woman who is completely pure of heart.
