AJ and Stephanie have a solid relationship with great communication and chemistry as shown on Season 8 of Married at First Sight, and according to AJ, the couple wasn't far from being in love at the time of their one-month anniversary.
"It's a feeling I haven't felt in a very, very long time -- a feeling that honestly I had forgotten what it felt like. Since I've been in love, it's been like six or seven years," AJ said during a Tuesday night appearance on Married at First Sight: Unfiltered.
"And I hadn't even dated in that time, so it wasn't even like I was on that path or had feelings or 'heavy like' for somebody. I completely forgot what that feeling was like, and it's just the most amazing thing ever."
While AJ hasn't actually said "I love you" to Stephanie yet on the show, he admitted he's "definitely walking down that path."
"Am I over the top of the mountain yet? No. I have some guards up, but at the same time, I have more guards down than I do up because I have confidence she's not going to -- in two or three or six months, or whatever it is -- decide she has a fear of commitment," AJ insisted.

"Yeah, I do [see myself getting there]! It could happen. I can't say the word 'love' yet, but I'll get there eventually," Keith promised.
