She thanked everyone for all the support from fans and promised to keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter.
When she wrote about Chris, she said, “Chris is one of the most wonderful men I have ever known. He handles himself in such a way that you can’t help but be drawn to him. My family absolutely loved him, and they really loved that he was from Massachusetts. In fact, they pretty much loved everything about Chris! We all agreed that he is super fun and a guy that would make a great life partner, but in the end, I had to say goodbye to Chris. As hard at it was, I knew it was the right thing to do. My heart was with Roberto and I knew nothing could change that. I know Chris will find an incredible woman to share his life with. I wish him all the happiness in the world!”
Ali wrote that her first time meeting Roberto can be compared to “love at first sight”.
The romance of the show hasn’t stopped since the show ended either. “Dancing in the street with Roberto seems like something you only see in the movies; however, that is life for us!”
“Since the show has ended, we have had secret rendezvous together. During those visits, Roberto will spin me around in the living room and just start dancing with me. He is every bit as romantic at home as he was in Lisbon. I cherish that about him.”
Ali reminisced that the way Roberto proposed was “the most beautiful thing I could possibly imagine.”
“Roberto’s proposal couldn’t have been more real or special. I wouldn’t ever want anything other than exactly how he asked me. Every word he said came from his heart, and I feel so blessed that he said those words to me. After Roberto and I saw the proposal for the first time at the After the Final Rose taping, we went home and watched it about 10 more times that night.”
Ali also addressed those who are skeptical of relationships that come out of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette experience.
“I have found a love that is stronger than I ever thought was possible. Since the show finished filming, I have fallen even more in love with Roberto,” Ali wrote.
Will we last the test of time? I cannot answer that for you. All I can say is that we will work on our relationship every day, and no matter what we do in our lives, we will always make our relationship our first priority.
Roberto is the strongest man I have ever known, and I want spend every day of my life striving to be the best woman I can be for him. I have faith in our relationship. I love him. I cherish him. I am so very thankful to have found him. Until … the wedding! ”
