One year after announcing his split from Lauren Bushnell, the former The Bachelor star has revealed he's playing the field again and looking for The One.

"I'm dating again," Ben told Us Weekly at The Bachelor slot machine unveiling in Las Vegas, adding that he's "casually dating."

Ben, however, isn't ready to divulge specific details about his love life.

"[There's] nothing that I'm ready to talk about in public," Ben explained. "That puts a lot of pressure on a new relationship."

Ben and Lauren got engaged on The Bachelor's Season 20 finale in early 2016. After starring on Freeform's Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, the pair called off their engagement in May 2017.

Ben then decided to film The Bachelor: Winter Games later that year in the hope of mending his broken heart.

"It was actually Winter Games that was the jumping point for me to decide that I'm moving on and start dating gain, which has been awesome. And that's where I'm at. I'm dating. I hadn't dated in three years before this," Ben said.

As fans probably recall, Ben left The Bachelor: Winter Games in tears when the show aired earlier this year due to some unresolved feelings for his ex-fiancee.

"As much as I've moved on and I have, it still hurts," Ben noted on the show of Lauren.

Lauren, however, has moved on with boyfriend Devin Antin, whom she's been dating for about 10 months now. She told Us earlier this month that Devin has handled her involvement in Bachelor Nation like a pro, especially since she travels in the same social circle as Ben.

"I don't think I gave him enough credit for how hard it is or how hard it was, especially because we did start dating relatively soon after Ben and I went our separate ways, and he was such a champ about it," Lauren gushed at the time.

"He was so supportive, but I know it was hard for him at times to constantly have to hear about my ex and to know I was engaged and all that stuff. That's got to be hard."

Lauren and Devin met on Tinder and briefly got to know each other one year before she appeared on The Bachelor. Once Lauren moved back to Los Angeles following her breakup with Ben, she and Devin reunited and a flame sparked.
