One fan asked, "Are you and Justin ever moving things out of the friend zone?"
In reply, Susie uploaded a video of her trying to hold Justin's hand as he batted her away, according to BachelorNation.com.
Susie wrote alongside the video, "I keep trying."
A different Instagram user also asked The Bachelor 26 alum why she decided not to appear on Bachelor in Paradise's ninth season, which currently airs Thursday nights on ABC.
Susie reportedly replied, "I really considered it. I thought long and hard about it. It didn't feel aligned, but I was also worried I would regret not going."
Susie recalled going on a wellness retreat before making her final decision about whether to join the Bachelor in Paradise cast. She explained that during her time of relaxation and reflection, she received the clarity that she needed.
Susie was enlightened to stay in Los Angeles and resume her normal goals, according to the website.
Susie even said of Bachelor in Paradise, "It felt good letting it go."
But a mystery man in Susie's life apparently played a role in her decision not to fly to Mexico for the show.
The wedding videographer elaborated, "When everyone left for the beach, I met a guy in L.A. that I dated through the summer. Although it didn't work out, I'm glad I took the summer and dated in a more traditional format."

Susie, however, shared how she is watching Bachelor in Paradise and that her favorite couple is Blake Moynes and Jess Girod.
"Both individually and together I like these two humans!" she reportedly gushed. "Would love to see them at the end together!"
Susie concluded that she's pleased with her life in Los Angeles and feels "SO grateful" for everything she has.
During a September Q&A session via Instagram Stories, a fan asked Susie to confirm if she and Justin were roommates.
The Bachelor 26 alum replied, "We are not, but this is a common misconception. People think we were/are roommates, but that's never been the case, though we did move to L.A. around the same time."
Susie went on to gush of her bestie, "Of course I knew Justin was cool and all, but I am kind of shocked at how genuine of a person he is and how he's been such an intentional/genuine friend for me these past few months."
Nick joked of Andrew's quick answer, "You don't have to sound like you're disgusted at the idea! You were like, 'Eww, gross, yuck, Susie!'"
Andrew therefore clarified, "That's what we decided we were going to do. We're just going to completely deny it and deny it hard."
Nick asked Andrew as a result, "Are you milking [Susie videos] for clicks?"
"No. Well no, sort of, yeah," Andrew responded. "It's funny! If people get the humor, then great!"
Andrew added at the time, "Susie is the goofiest person you'll ever meet. I think she's the better version -- but girl version -- of me, where she doesn't really overthink the things that she does. She's just like, 'Hey, I'm going to do it.' And I think that's the coolest thing."
The podcast's co-hosts joked about how it looked like Susie was The Bachelorette star and she was trying to decide whether to give Andrew or Justin her final rose.
"We're basically on an ongoing two-on-one date right now," Andrew confirmed with a laugh.
"[Justin] did his video with her the other day on a Target run, and I don't know how I felt about it. But I try to support them, [even though] I wanted to be a part of the video."
Justin finished as the runner-up on Katie Thurston's The Bachelorette season before pursuing love with Eliza Isichei on Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season last summer. But Eliza chose Rodney Mathews over Justin, which she came to realize was a mistake. Once she tried to win Justin back, he lost interest in their romance.
But Susie left the show during Fantasy Suites because Clayton had slept with, and also professed his love to, the other two women. Even though Clayton considered Susie to be a "once-in-a-lifetime woman," she was convinced on the show that The Bachelor star wasn't her "person."
However, Clayton and Susie began communicating after filming ended in late 2021 and sparked up a romance in the real world. They publicly announced their relationship in March 2022 on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose.
