Airris was dating someone else when he matched
At the premiere’s after-party, Airris said he dated other people until he found out he was engaged.
“My mindset was, ‘I’ll be single until I’m not.’ Honestly, I knew there was one [chance] where I might not be chosen [for the show]’ said the actor.
He asked: “If I met someone beforehand [the show]should I just not bother and explore it?”
Airris said he broke up with a woman he was dating as soon as he found out he was engaged but they had only been dating for about a month.
“It wasn’t long enough to be very serious, but it was long enough to have any feelings there.”
