ben higgins isnt ready to kiss someone else

Ben Higgins is single and NOT ready to mingle.

During a recent episode of his podcast with fellow Bachelor nation vet Ashley Iaconetti, the season 20 lead revealed that he has no plans to romantically rebound following his split with fiancée Lauren Bushnell. Oh man.

This truth bomb came after one fan of The Ben and Ashley I. Almost Famous Podcast asked when the former Bachelor would start dating again, especially since Miz Bushnell has already moved on.

On his decision to stay single, Higgins explained:

"If I were to kiss somebody right now in my life, it would hold a lot of weight. It would be really hard for me. Right now, for me to kiss anybody … my chest kind of gets tight. I know that's really difficult for me."

Poor guy. Apparently, the business analyst has avoided getting specific about his post-Lauren love life as he is aware that fans were really invested in their love story. He continued:

"This kind of stuff, dating and relationships, are things that are very sensitive to me right now. It's just not something I want to talk about right now, honestly. I don't know when I'm ready [to date]. Honestly, as tempted as I am and as much as I do desire relationships, like I do. I desire commitment and I desire to emotionally attach myself to somebody … I am forcing myself to get to know myself to better, to find myself a little bit, to get to know who I am now."

Makes sense. Not to mention, the former flames only split back in May after getting engaged during the season 20 finale of the ABC dating competition. So just do you, bud!

Still we're sure there will be PLENTY of ladies vying for Ben's heart once he's ready to start dating again. We mean, he IS the "perfect Ben." LOLz!
