If you happen to be dating and it’s none of their business whether you’re going on other dates to see what happens and you’re just having fun before you go on a TV show — I don’t see a problem with that. That’s why I never want to draw conclusions right away, but I think we’ll see. I’m curious to hear Nate’s version.”
