While Cassie wasn't ready to get engaged by the end of Colton's The Bachelor season, she may be prepared to take that next step in her relationship in the near future.

"We definitely talk about our future and an engagement a lot. It's a big part of our conversations," Cassie shared with People.

"To be honest with you, we don't really plan or have, like, a set date. But one fun thing that we did is we did set a goal for next year and we want to buy a house in [Huntington Beach], CA. So I'm moving to California!" Colton revealed.

Colton therefore confirmed he is "now a California resident," in Los Angeles specifically.

Colton, who lived in Denver, CO, prior to his The Bachelor stint, had a huge smile on his face when revealing the big news, as did Cassie.

However, the charity founder and former professional football player doesn't intend to live with Cassie in her hometown.

"Our goal is to buy a house in Huntington Beach in the next year, but we probably won't move in together until we're engaged or married," Colton told People.

"As much as I want her to live with me, it's a big step and something we both take very seriously."

The happy couple waited four months to go public with their relationship since The Bachelor wrapped filming Season 23 in Spain late last year, and now they are moving full steam ahead in love.

"We're so excited to be out in public and not have to hide anymore," Colton told the magazine in light of his The Bachelor finale having aired on Tuesday night. "I'm so in love, and I'm ready for everyone to know it."

"We can finally be outwardly happy, and not have to keep this big secret," Cassie, a 23-year-old assistant speech pathologist added.

Despite all the drama that unfolded at the end of his The Bachelor edition -- including Cassie quitting due to fear of an engagement and not being "in love" after such a short period of time -- Colton insisted he has no regrets.

"I have no questions about the way she feels about me. I know our relationship and our story on The Bachelor wasn't exactly how every other one's been, but it was ours. I wouldn't change anything about it. That night with her leaving honestly just showed me how much I love her," Colton gushed.

"I came on The Bachelor wanting to be madly in love when I left, and that's exactly what happened."
