Matt James season of The Bachelor has stirred up attention and conversations from all over. After giving his final rose to Rachel Kirkconnell, Matt decided to end their relationship. Also, he has since deleted all photos from his Instagram. A source tells E! News that, “Matt wants a fresh start now that his Bachelor season has ended.”

They also add, “He is ready for new beginnings and that is one of the reasons he cleared his IG page.”

The insider also shares that “He wants to step back and refocus his priorities. The show was very toxic and taxing on his mental health and he is glad it’s over.”

According the the source, Matt James “had no idea how hard the process would be.” Even though he had some idea of what to expect on The Bachelor, thanks to advice from his friend Tyler Cameron, he wasn’t prepared.

Matt’s journey proved to be a dramatic one, and while the finale shows Matt and Rachel quite in love, the source says they “are not in touch.” The insider also shares that, “It ended badly and there is no chance they will ever get back together. Matt truly loved Rachael and it was devastating that he had to end the relationship.”

So what about Matt’s relationship status now? This past Friday, March 19, James shared on The Bill Simmons Podcast, “I’m not going to be dating.” So while our former Bachelor is single, the source explains that, “He’s trying to focus on his work and wants to start giving back to the community again. He’s focusing on his mental health right now and really taking this time to clear his head.”

Fortunately, Matt is also getting support from his best friend, Tyler Cameron. The source also says, “Tyler has always been there for him and Matt knows he can always count on him for support. They both know they would be lost without each other.”

Matt James’ season of The Bachelor may be over, he is taking time for himself to heal. Fans are wishing Matt the best!
