Admit your mistakes. Jacob Rapini takes the blame for his latest breakup with his colleague Bachelors in paradise alum Jill Chin.
“You were the right person at the wrong time,” Rapini, 28, wrote in a letter to the 27-year-old shared via Instagram on Friday, December 2.
“You gave 100% while I gave 80%,” he continued. “They pushed me to look for quality work, change my schedule and focus on my family instead of hollow relationships. You asked for better communication while I lacked it. You showed up when I didn’t. Trust was lost.”
Bachelor Nation watched as sparks flew during an October episode BiP. However, their brief relationship failed the “Split Week” test when Rapini left Chin Kate Gallivan. Watching their early days when the season aired on ABC caused the two to reconnect.
“After our one-on-one interview aired, we were like, ‘Oh, we’re catching the feelings again!’ And then we talked more and more,” said Chin Natasha Parker and Joe Amabile on Thursday 1st December episode of the “Click Bait” podcast. “And then about three weeks before the reunion, we decided that we probably wanted to try that, so we just wanted to talk and try it.”
However, a week after the public announcement, they were back together in the Bachelors in paradise reunion, the couple called it quits.
“I had to do what was best for me,” the architectural historian added on the podcast. “And there’s just a line and something like standards that you have for yourself that you just can’t let people cross. I have no ill will. I wish nothing bad.”
Chin concluded: “I think I’ll leave it at that – the trust was broken. And that in a long-distance relationship you need communication and trust, and we didn’t have either.”
Rapini took full responsibility in his message, noting that his emotional immaturity made their long-distance relationship even more difficult.
“Yes, the distance was a big factor for me. The 2,000-mile distance presents some challenges, but that wasn’t the main reason. It was readiness. I appreciate that you made me realize this at your expense when trying to make it work,” the Arizona native explained Friday.
“We had spoken before meeting up and were both open to trying it out. At the reunion, I wanted to show you a glorious moment to somehow undo the pain I caused in Mexico,” he added. “But it’s not about the big moments. It’s about the little things. I wasn’t there to give you my whole heart because of my insecurities. I still have a lot to refine before I can be there mentally and spiritually.”
He concluded: “You deserve to be loved. Right now I deserve to be alone. Jill, good luck on your journey angel🖤.”
