Keep it a secret: Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan “go out entirely”, source says, but afraid to make it public
“Peter and Kelley are dating, but they don’t admit it to people,” an insider told Us Weekly.
“She has been much more careful and has stayed in her house since her incident with Peter while walking on the Riverwalk in Chicago and does not want to be criticized all over the Internet. “
The duo was photographed at the end of March in Chicago and was criticized for not taking a social distance.

Move forward slowly: A source told Us Weekly this week that Peter and Kelley kept their romance silent because they fear backlash.
Peter played shyly earlier this month when he raised persistent rumors that he was dating his former competitor on Nick Viall’s podcast, The Viall Files.
He said to Nick: ‘Are we dating? Do I like spending time with her? Absolutely. We don’t go out together. Can I see this in the future? Yes, of course. I would be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened.
The pilot admitted that after his failed romances with other baccalaureate candidates Hannah Ann Sluss and Madison Prewett, he wanted to slow things down in his romantic life.
“From anyone, I am the last person who needs to rush into any type of relationship. I just had a commitment that didn’t work. I was just trying to pursue things with another woman that didn’t work. That’s why right now, I’m taking it really, really very slowly.
Peter and Kelley are in quarantine with their boyfriend Dustin Kendrick and he revealed that it happened naturally after he went to Chicago to hang out with Kelley and the blockages started to happen.

“It became a thing where we always got along very well and had great chemistry. We simply enjoy each other’s company. I also decided to quarantine here with Dustin as well.
The reality star also revealed that their friendship blossomed after he continued to stumble across Kelley by accident, which led them to reconnect and get closer.
“There are a lot of things people don’t know. My relationship with Kelley was … fortuitous. You go back to the very beginning – we meet before it all starts.
“We don’t go out together. Can I see this in the future? Yes, of course. I would be extremely lucky and very happy if that happened. Peter explained his relationship with Kelley earlier in April
“Obviously the show happened and it didn’t work for us. During the Super Bowl, I was in Miami and had the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl with my brother, and I met him on the Saturday night before the Super Bowl.
“In our relationship with the series, it didn’t really go in the best way for us. It just wasn’t going to work on the show.
Peter revealed that they crossed paths again at a party with mutual friends in Los Angeles.
“We chat, we end up going out and that’s when I got her number. We started to communicate and keep in touch. “
Kendrick introduced Us Weekly earlier in April: “I think it’s fair for them to go out and say what they mean, but the only thing I can say is that they have the look really cute together and their interactions are really cute too,
“I’m sure you may hear stuff from them in the future, but I’ll let them say that. “
