It turns out John Paul Jones and Tayshia Adams didn’t find love in Paradise after all.

“Tayshia and I met last Friday, but we have so much going on in our personal lives it is very difficult to focus on a serious relationship,” the 24-year-old former Bachelorette contestant revealed on the “Reality Life with Kate Casey” podcast on Wednesday, October 30.

JPJ and Tayshia, 29, met while filming season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise over the summer. After she broke things off with him ahead of the final episode, the former Bachelor contestant traveled to Maryland to reconnect with the finance analyst. Their reconciliation was documented for the Bachelor in Paradise reunion special, which aired last month.

Tayshia confirmed the breakup on Wednesday via Instagram.

“John and I had something incredibly special. We fell for each other in Paradise, and everything was a whirlwind after that. When the show ended, I truly went back to Maryland to see if what we had was something we could build on without cameras, a production crew, and without feeling any pressure: to simply figure things out on our own terms. But the reality was, we were living on opposite coasts, and working insane schedules that made it impossible to see each other and build a life with each other,” she wrote. “We truly did the best we could, but at this time have decided that what is best for the both of us is to go our separate ways. We are the best of friends and will continue to remain in each other’s life because regardless of the situation, we make each other happy
