The Bachelorette alum Becca Kufrin has revealed she's almost ready to begin dating again after her split from Garrett Yrigoyen, but her The Bachelorette runner-up Blake Horstmann apparently isn't an option for her.

Considering Garrett has already moved on and has a new girlfriend, yoga instructor Alex Farrar, Bachelor Nation has been wondering if Becca is ready to dip her toes back into the dating pool.

"I definitely for a while was like, 'F relationships. I'm gonna be single. I don't want to deal with another heartache down the road.' But that goes away pretty quickly," Becca said during Tuesday's episode of Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe.

"I'm also the type of person where in the past, I will say, it was great to have a distraction. It's an ego boost if you have guys that you're talking to and seeing."

But Becca admitted she's not exactly ready to jump into another romance given the heartbreak she felt from losing Garrett.

"This was my biggest relationship [with Garrett]. We were engaged. It wasn't like my college relationship that was on-and-off with ups and downs. We were living together, we were engaged, we were house hunting, so I had this whole future I envisioned," Becca shared with Kaitlyn Bristowe, who starred on Season 11 of The Bachelorette.

"Now it's me just trying to be like, 'Okay. That was ripped away from me, so how do I adjust? What's going to fill me and make me happy in the long run?'"

Becca elaborated, "I didn't want to put a Band-Aid on a bullet hole and be like, 'Oh, it's okay. I'm just going to find the next person to keep me occupied.' So I was not into talking to guys for a while."

Although Becca isn't quite ready to enter the dating scene and meet a new man, she insisted she's almost there.

"Of course, people slide into your DMs. Now, I'm a little bit more open because I think I'm, like, a little bit more ready, but I still have a lot of work to do," Becca explained.

"I want to give myself at least until the new year," she added, "like a couple more months, to figure out where I'm at."

Becca moved to Los Angeles, CA, after her breakup with Garrett and is embracing her single life. She said living in the sunny city has been "liberating" and "magical" for her, although living alone was an "adjustment."

Rumors have swirled Becca recently began dating her runner-up on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season, Blake, but Blake told fans during a Q&A session on Monday that he and his ex "are friends," according to Us Weekly.

"Let the woman be single for a while she don't need no damn man to be happy. She is living her best life," Blake reportedly said.

Blake continued, "We've chatted a little bit. I told her I support her, and I hope she's doing well and everything, but it's just a friendship... We've been friendly the whole time since even the finale. There's never been any kind of weirdness between us."

Becca echoed Blake's sentiments during her chat with Kaitlyn, revealing that there is no spark between Blake and herself anymore.

"It's to the point now where my friends, my best friends who know everything, are like, 'Wait, I read in this tabloid that you guys are dating again.' It was last week, [someone asked], 'Becca, are you and Blake dating?!' And I was like, 'You would've been the first person to know!'" Becca explained.

"No, Blake and I, we're friends... We have stayed on great terms. He is somebody that I consider a great friend."

Becca said being on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette bonds people "in such a weird way."

"We were able to... get past the really hard breakup part to be like, 'You know, we both have our separate experiences from the show,'" Becca said.

"But I have such a soft spot in my heart for Blake... Him and I were like the same person. He was just the male version of Becca. Our interests, everything, were so similar that for a while it freaked me out."

"But now I feel like we kind of handle things and process things the same way that we just kind of get each other in that weird way," she concluded.

When Becca chose Garrett over Blake on The Bachelorette's Season 14 finale that aired in August 2018, it was excruciating to watch Blake get dumped considering he said he was madly in love with the show's leading lady at the time.

Blake was admittedly "blindsided" by Becca's decision because he appeared to be her frontrunner all season long.

"I truly thought that if it came down to me proposing, that she wouldn't say no," Blake told Entertainment Tonight in 2018. "I thought what we had was real."

Blake added it was "incredibly hard" to get over his heartbreak at first.

"It made for some really hard days, but I had a great support system. My family was amazing. We talked through a lot of things and they were there for me," he said.

Although Becca didn't reveal until early September her relationship with Garrett was over and they had called off their engagement, rumors began swirling in June that the pair were on the outs -- and Becca and Garrett were noticeably spending a lot of time apart over the summer.

"No one wants to go through a breakup, but I will say [COVID-19] quarantine was kind of nice because I had an excuse to hole up and just feel the emotions. I was sad and didn't have to force myself to go out or make appearances," Becca told Kaitlyn.

"I'm honestly still taking it day-by-day. I feel like I'm really just trying to focus on me and feel all of the emotions when they come."

A source told E! News in August that Becca and Garrett's lifestyles just didn't "mesh" anymore and the couple realized they were no longer "compatible."

Becca previously said there was a lot that went into her breakup from Garrett even though people assumed their differences in political and social views resulted in them calling it quits.

Becca revealed she was ready to tie the knot with Garrett in December 2019 and the pair's relationship seemed to be strong and thriving in May 2020, but drama began in June when Garrett made a controversial social media post amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

Garrett posted a thin blue line on June 4, which showed solidarity with police forces amid nationwide protests triggered by the killing of George Floyd and appeared to spearhead the couple's demise.

Becca made it known on her own Bachelor Happy Hour podcast that she did not "align" or "agree with" Garrett's perspective. She admitted at the time she and Garrett were trying to work things out but the future of their relationship was uncertain.

Prior to starring on The Bachelorette, Becca had her heart broken by Arie Luyendyk Jr. on The Bachelor's 22nd season, which wrapped in early 2018.

Arie proposed marriage to Becca during the season finale, but he dumped her weeks later and asked his runner-up, Lauren Burnham, for a second chance.

Once Lauren took Arie back, the pair got engaged on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose. Arie and Lauren then went on to wed in 2019, and they are now parents to a one-year-old daughter Alessi.
