During the February 24 episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Haley watched back a Season 12 clip in which Jacob asked her about her "comfort level" with physical intimacy and affection such as hand-holding and kissing.
"What makes sense for you? Because you seem a bit more reserved with that stuff and I've kind of had to initiate all that, which is fine to a degree -- but then I start to second-guess myself a little bit and say, 'Okay, does she actually like me or should I not lean in at this point?'" Jacob tells Haley in the clip.
Unfiltered host Jamie Otis -- who starred on Season 1 of Married at First Sight -- asked Haley, "Jake is second-guessing whether or not you like him. Are you second-guessing this?"
"So, at this point, yeah," Haley admitted.
"I'm a firm believer that personality builds an attraction. Maybe I'm not attracted to them initially but if their personality is great, then I can totally see myself finding them more attractive."
She added, "At this point, I'm not really vibing with his personality, and so that's when I was starting to back away."
Given Jacob felt he had to initiate all of the affection with Haley, Jamie asked his Married at First Sight co-star Erik Lake whether he felt the same way in his marriage to Virginia Coombs.
"I think right now it's pretty even [in that we both initiate]. I'm not going to take anything to any level that's going to make her uncomfortable, so I've kind of just been going with the flow," Erik explained.
"And I think she's doing the same. I think we're just kind of letting things unfold the way that they need to. So yeah, I think no one is doing anything more than the other."
MAFS star Ryan also joined Erik and Haley on Unfiltered and was asked how affection was going in his marriage to Clara Fergus.

"We are both not huge PDA people, but I think we're very affectionate with each other in our private time for sure," Ryan said.
Haley acknowledged her conversation with Jacob about intimacy was "difficult."
"It's our honeymoon and it's supposed to be this happy time," Haley said.
"And I had to be like, 'Hey, I don't know how I'm feeling right now!' I'm sure that's hard for anyone to hear, so it was a tough time."
When asked how she felt about her marriage at this point in the process, Haley said only time would tell.
"At this point, I'm still feeling things out," Haley revealed. "I wouldn't say I'm on Cloud 9... but we're still getting to know each other."
But Haley and Jacob's honeymoon ended on a bad note after Jacob thought Haley intentionally left him out of a cast gathering and then lied to him about it.
On last week's Season 12 episode of Married at First Sight, it took time for Haley and Jacob to work through their disagreement, mainly because Jacob also apparently accused Haley of having a boyfriend back home.
Haley noted it was "insulting" and "ridiculous" for Jacob to even think she was cheating on him, and so she refused to even sit with him on the flight back to Atlanta, GA.
"I've never felt energy just completely cut off. Just tell me you need a break. You didn't say that. You said, 'It's a girls night,' and then it wasn't a girls night," Jacob told Haley.
"The cordial thing to do would be to say, 'Hey we're hanging out; you want to come down?' And then you didn't. Those little white lies add up and I had that situation in my past, so when you did that, it messed with me pretty good and I lost trust."
Not only did Jacob accuse Haley of being a liar, but he also called her "high-strung" and said, "You have anxiety."
The couple slept in separate beds that night but Jacob ultimately apologized to his wife for how he had treated her.
Haley therefore admitted she felt "drained" but there might still be a chance "for something positive to come out of this."
