Erich Schwer and Gabby Windey's relationship has wilted.

The Bachelor Nation member took to his Instagram Stories Nov. 15 to address the breakup with his former fiancée. "A lot of you are reaching out with questions about me and Gabby," the Story read. "The reality is that we were ultimately not each others people—it's hard when there isn't one thing to put your finger on. We met in a very unique situation and in a very unique way and I'm grateful we did. I would never take it back."

The real estate agent went on to praise Gabby, calling her "an amazing person," and expressing that he will always root for the Bachelorette star. "I hope she gives them hell in the DWTS finale," Erich continued. "I have learned and grown so much this year from experiences and mistakes and I continue to better myself everyday."

Erich concluded the post sharing that he is taking time with friends and family as well as focusing on himself, writing, "I have been working hard these past few months and am I'm excited to share with y'all eventually."

And one day prior to the 29-year-old's post, Gabby spoke about the breakup on Dancing With the Stars.

"For me, it holds a special place because I did just go through a breakup," she said about their waltz routine to Des'ree's "I Am Kissing You." "The end of our relationship happened because we weren't completely in step and in sync with each other on our common goals or just the way we approach life. We weren't each other's best match."



Earlier this month, a source told E! News that Gabby and Erich had gone their separate ways and it was Gabby to be the one to end the relationship.

"She felt they weren't aligned and weren't on the same page," the insider said. "Gabby was hoping they could give each other space and work it out but ultimately decided they didn't have a future."

Gabby and Erich's breakup comes two months after they got engaged on season 19 of the hit ABC reality show.
