Dean failed to commit to either woman, and then he went on to date Lesley Murphy on The Bachelor Winter Games, which filmed in late 2017 and aired earlier this year. However, Dean and Lesley's romance also didn't work out.
"I do bad enough in relationships without pressure, so when there's pressure on them I do even worse," Dean admitted to the magazine.
"Yeah, my last few relationships haven't been so great because it's like, everyone's expecting so many things and then you like, try and hang onto those things because people want them for you and you want them for yourself."
Dean therefore revealed his love life is moving "slowly" -- and he's completely fine with that.
"Before the show I was on a couple, and I would message people through that, but now I just want it to happen more naturally I think. Or just be single forever. Why not? There's nothing wrong with that either."
Dean was a fan favorite on Rachel's The Bacheloretteseason and received a lot of support after she broke his heart. He developed, however, into a controversial character on Bachelor in Paradise when he got himself involved in a sticky love triangle in Mexico with Kristina and Danielle.
Dean ultimately caused an uproar during his time on Paradise because he had a physical and emotional connection with both women and couldn't make up his mind.
Kristina and Danielle were head over heels for Dean and clearly hurting throughout the season, but he kept bouncing back and forth between them.
Dean was also accused of trying to date Kristina and Danielle simultaneously in the real world once the show wrapped filming.
The girls called him out for his antics on the reunion special, and Dean was criticized for being a playboy as well as selfish and insensitive.
