Robby Hayes is not rushing Amanda Stanton. In fact, he respects the new dating approach she has adopted since splitting from ex Josh Murray.

On Monday, Hayes attended the “Bachelor in Paradise” viewing party at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California, where he was interviewed by Us Weekly. The reality star revealed during the chat that he has yet to meet Stanton’s kids even though they are already together.

However, instead of feeling bad about the situation, Hayes maintains that he completely understands his partner’s different dating approach. “That’s something that, you know, she rushed into things last ‘Paradise.’ She jumps right into things with Josh, and as much as her friends warned her, she kind of was overwhelmed by emotions,” he said.

“She came into this ‘Paradise’ a little more protected, and I understood that. I respect that. I think patience is a virtue and we all need it … It’s something that we’re taking slow and we’ll see how it progresses through this season,” Hayes continued.

Stanton has two daughters from a previous relationship with a man named Nick Bounfiglio. She reportedly ended things with the father of her children, Kinsey and Charlie, after learning that he was texting other women while she was pregnant with the latter, according to Bustle.

At the end of “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 3, Stanton got engaged to Murray. Unfortunately, they announced their breakup in December 2016. Murray has since claimed that he’s moved on from Stanton and is now dating someone new. Interestingly, he admitted recently that it was his connection with Stanton’s kids that made him stay in the relationship longer than he would have.

Meanwhile, Stanton sat down for a chat with “The Morning Breath” podcast early this month where the lifestyle and fashion blogger gushed about her new beau. “He’s sweet. He’s really sweet,” she said of the GH Investments principal manager at the time.

Stanton and Hayes were previously hit by breakup rumors back in July after reports claimed that the latter was seen making out with a different woman at a Zac Brown Band concert. However, a source close to the couple shut down the rumors by saying that the pair is “still dating and have been dating since they got back from ‘Paradise.’”
