So long: ‘We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time,’ Moss added
‘They are mainly in disagreement over lifestyle preferences. Dale wants to be in a lively city and focus on his career, and Clare is rooted in Sacramento to help care for her mom. It’s been very tense recently between them,’ the insider said.
Lately he has been in NYC while she was seen in Northern California.
Moss cares for Clare, but feels ‘he’s rushing into something he’s unsure about.’ It was added, ‘They are both still getting to know each other and figuring it all out.’

And the friend noted, ‘They’ve decided to take some time apart for now… They are still figuring out the logistics of their relationship and if they will stay together.’
PageSix added the couple decided to end their relationship only ‘last week.’
The outlet added, ‘There’s a whole bunch of problems between them. I don’t know what the specific breaking point was, but she wants him to move to Sacramento and he’s not crazy about that. She wants kids right away, he doesn’t.’
TMZ added that it was Dale who wanted to end the romance and he asked for the split only ‘last weekend.’
The duo became engaged on season 16 of The Bachelorette with the proposal airing in November.
Over: ‘We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself – something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another. – DM,’ the star ended his note
Shocking: Moss famously proposed to Crawley very early on in the season
He was last seen on her Instagram account on January 9. She was last seen on his Instagram page on January 5.
Also on Tuesday, Clare was asked out already.
Spencer Robertson wanted a date: ‘Coffee? @clarecrawley,’ Spencer posted.
He was added to season 16 of the Bachelorette for Tayshia Adams, who ended up engaged to Zac Clark.
Last week Moss gushed about his love. He appeared on the Raising the Bar With Alli and Adrian podcast as he said that he had never signed up to be on the ABC romance competition reality show but was nominated.
Moss said: ‘Now, I could have never planned what happened because I was nominated.
‘I never actually signed up. And I turned it down over, and over, and over again. And I actually finally committed to it four days before everyone was supposed to leave for the show.
Struggling: ‘They are mainly in disagreement over lifestyle preferences. Dale wants to be in a lively city and focus on his career, and Clare is rooted in Sacramento to help care for her mom. It’s been very tense recently between them,’ the insider said
Not long ago: He was last seen on her Instagram account on January 9 by the beach
‘And the only reason I committed to it was because Clare was announced as Bachelorette at that time.’
He insisted that he didn’t ever seriously consider throwing his name in the hat until seeing Clare on television in March 2020 and feeling like he had to meet her.
The former pro athlete said: ‘She was so confident and passionate about it.
‘And I know that she had been through this before, but I felt by watching her that this was her time and she was exactly where she was meant to be.’
Things seemed to be going swimmingly between the engaged couple as they even took a ‘monumental step’ in their relationship as hairdresser Clare gave Moss his ‘last haircut of 2020’ weeks ago.
Sharing a photo of the pair at Clare’s former place of employment, the De Facto Salon in California, Moss was ready to enter a new year with a fresh look as he placed his trust in Crawley.
Moss posted a mirror snap of him sitting in the hairdresser chair in a smock with black jeans.
An eager-looking Crawley stood behind him in a pair of leggings and a white shirt with her razor in hand.
The former football wide receiver and model rested his hand on his locks as he gave a grimace.
He captioned the photo, ‘Today is a monumental step in @clarecrawley & my relationship.
‘Her first time ever cutting my hair and my last haircut of 2020! #NewYearNewMe #winning.’
Sharing some behind the scenes footage on his story he told Clare, ‘You’re making me nervous,’ while joking that it may ‘turn into an argument.;
She said, ‘No it would never turn into an argument,’ while lovingly putting her hand on him.
He wrote on the video that his ‘trust level’ was ‘100’ as he teased getting his fresh cut.
Clare then moved onto the shampooing stage of the process as he made a Beyonce reference and called himself ‘Dalé with the good hair.’
The two spent the Christmas holiday in his hometown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Crawley said, ‘I pray that no matter what these holidays look like for you this year, you are able to share + feel the love regardless of circumstances!,’ while posting a snowy kissing snap.
And they were also seen looking very much in love on New Year’s Eve.
And since then the pair has shared loving images on social media.
Speaking about their whirlwind romance to People, she said: ‘This is the happiest time in my life.
‘Everything [since] has been even more reaffirming of why I chose him.’
Trust: A little hesitant Moss said ‘You’re making me nervous,’ while teasing it could ‘turn into an argument’
Moss added, ‘We have love and we have the foundation and we can figure everything else out.
‘I got you just like you got me.’
Crawley fell head over heels for Dale within the first few episodes of the season.
Then she made it known she had no interest in pursuing any of the other men which culminated in a swift proposal.
Tayshia Adams, 30, was ushered in halfway through the season as the new Bachelorette.
Crawley congratulated her love journey after last Tuesday’s finale.
‘Everybody is so deserving of it, and I really do hope she finds her person and she has the beginning of an amazing love story.’
They have not been seen side by side in over a week.
