After reports hit the web that former The Bachelor star Colton Underwood might be dating Lucy Hale, the reality star has set the record straight once and for all.
When talking to TooFab about whether or not he’s dating the Pretty Little Liars star, the 28-year-old said, “Nope — I am a single man right now.”
As fans know, his reply came after rumors started swirling back in July that the two were “casually dating.” According to People Magazine, the two stars got together after “connecting over social media DMs.”
“They’ve hung out a few times. They are very casually dating — it’s been so complicated to date (in general) during the pandemic,” a source explained to the outlet at the time.
For those who missed it, Lucy and Colton were photographed on a hike together in Los Angeles, CA, on July 15, 2020. In photos obtained by TMZ, the two were seen walking together. While she rocked a white tank top and leggings, he donned a black t-shirt and shorts.
But on July 16, 2020, the brunette beauty revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she was single.
“I feel more single than ever, but it’s fine,” she told them. “If anything during this time it’s taught [me] — because I’ve done the whole thing basically alone and I used to hate being alone — I feel the only way I’m gonna date someone next is if they make my life better because I’m so happy right now having my own routine.”
From the sound of it, both Colton and Lucy are single. As for if there’s anything romantic going on between the two, only time will tell!
As for what the actress looks for in a man, she revealed that “someone who’s confident and comfortable in their skin” is key.
Over the years, Lucy has also been linked to David Henrie, Alex Marshall, Chris Zylka, Graham Rogers, Joel Crouse, Adam Pitts, Anthony Kalabretta, Riley Smith and Ryan Rottman.
