In the end, despite the improvements, Andi noted in her post that she “wouldn’t change my path/timing for the world.” So even on days that don’t seem like a bed of roses, he wants fans to keep this advice in mind.
“I lived that life of being single, and don’t get me wrong, it’s not always easy,” he shared with E!. “There are times when you’re single at the wedding and you don’t feel good. But it’s OK for yourself to be sad. Don’t hurt others with you or you.”
The former attorney added, “I look back and some of my happiest times were when I was single, and some of my happiest times were when I was in relationship. So ask yourself this question: when am I happiest? You’re single, then you’re not with the right person.”
For Andi, Blaine is the right man. As he revealed in his post, just one month after the photo was taken, she met her future husband in Italy—15 years after they first met. Andi announced to E! that part of the inspiration for his Instagram message came after Blaine left a sweet note on his car.
“I was like, ‘Proof to never settle,'” he said, “‘even if you’re 35 years old.'”
