The athlete-turned-model admitted he and his former fiancée had their ups and downs. “But, you know, the statements that came out, like, this didn’t come out of nowhere,” he continued. “And I love Clare and respect Clare enough to let her know how I feel, even if that’s [against] the expectations of everybody else.”
He also insisted he “wanted nothing more than to make this relationship work,” noting he put his “heart and soul into it each and every day.” However, Dale suggested he’s going to try to move on.
“While this is going to be difficult, you know, what you’ll see from me is trying to practice what I preach and continue to put my best foot forward each and every day,” the South Dakota native added. “And while trying to find some sense of normalcy, I’m also going to continue to try and find joy and happiness in each day and continue to share that. And everything else is in God’s hands.”
At the end, he thanked his fans for their support, letting them know their “outreach and messages have been truly amazing” and that their words have helped during this time.
