When you know, you know. 

Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes are the latest Bachelor couple to get the internet talking. The pair has been dating for a little less than 6-months, but time flies when you're in love! On his podcast Help! I Suck at Dating with fellow Bachelor nation members Jared Haibon and Vanessa Grimaldi, Dean discussed why his relationship with Caelynn took him some time to fully pursue. 

Dean admitted that he had some hesitation in whether or not to pursue Caelynn because he was afraid their lives wouldn't "mesh well" together. Clearly, he was incorrect. "Obviously I was wrong about that because things are going well," he shared. 

Their guest this week was Heather M., who asked Dean some great questions about his relationship. Including, what is it that drew him to Caelynn in the first place. "Caelynn's got some snark to her," he shared. "It turns me on more than anything...She's just like fun to hang out with."

Then he revealed to listeners that Caelynn was actually in the studio with them. But, ever the gentlemen, Dean told her she can stay and listen to him share the exact reasons he likes being with her so much. "A lot of the people that I've dated have been like...they've been a little bit more sensitive to my jokes and my humor and me as a person," he revealed. "What's great about Caelynn is that she, for the most part, can handle my sarcasm and my snideness." 

At the core, it's all about finding someone you're comfortable with. "I can be myself around her," he revealed. "Which is a nice change."
