While speaking to Season 23 The Bachelor star Colton Underwood, Ben turned things around and opened up about his own love life, according to Bustle.

"I was just telling someone the other day, I started dating again. This is big news, right? I am dating," Ben declared.

Colton then asked, "Are you on an app?"

After replying, "No," Ben reportedly confirmed he's not dating in the general sense but is rather focused on and spending time with one woman in particular.

"I'm actually dating one person that we will talk about in a couple weeks on the podcast," Ben teased.

Ben declined to reveal details about his new romance or the lucky woman who peaked his interest, but the Season 20 The Bachelor star did say, "She's like the best, purest person I know."

Ben also told Colton that starring on The Bachelor franchise actually helped prepare him to overcome a big obstacle in his current relationship.

"Here's the thing, we were talking about the other night how The Bachelor is a really great thing. It forces you to have conversations and right now the girl that I'm talking to is long-distance," Ben explained, according to Bustle.

"And so we FaceTime a lot and it feels very similar because we don't get time together. It is very intentional. It is very focused. If we're going to spend any time with each other, it's going to be in conversation... A lot of those conversations are about our lives."

The Bachelor process allows its star to spend quality time with women away from the distractions of everyday life. Since the journey is short and rushed, it forces a couple to open up and be vulnerable with each other sooner, enabling a deep connection to be formed early on.

After failing to win Kaitlyn Bristowe's heart on The Bachelorette's eleventh season, Ben starred on The Bachelor in 2016 and ended up proposing marriage to Lauren Bushnell during the March finale.

It was widely believed Ben and Lauren were truly in love and going to make it long-term, but after more than one year together and starring in a spinoff called Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? on Freeform, the couple announced their decision to end their engagement in May 2017.

While it took quite a while for Ben to get over the split and find himself ready to date again, Lauren moved on within a couple of months by getting romantically involved with Devin Antin, whom she had met on Tinder prior to appearing on The Bachelor and dated for a little over one year.

Following Lauren and Devin's split in August 2018, she began dating country singer Chris Lane three months later and they appear to still be together and happy.
