“There’s a lot of things that I’ve closed off in my life because I wanted to be strong for other people,” the 23-year-old revealed, noting that when her parents divorced, she felt her family was gone. Colton, 27, could relate.

“My parents are divorced as well … I understand where you’re coming from, as far as not talking about it,” the bachelor told her.
At the end of their date, he told the cameras: “I love that she was able to be so open and vulnerable with me … after tonight, I can definitely say I’m falling in love with Hannah.”
