Months after Erich Schwer and Gabby Windey called it quits — which happened shortly after the two got engaged on “The Bachelorette” finale — Schwer is now moving on as he seemingly confirmed he is in a new relationship.
The 30-year-old real estate agent reshared a photo of him with social media influencer Elizabeth Turner to his Instagram Story, which read “Valentine.”
Erich Schwer Soft Launches New Relationship
Elizabeth Turner shared a Polaroid photo of her kissing “The Bachelorette” winner Erich Schwer’s cheek to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, writing “Valentine” in red font, followed by a fire heart emoji.
Schwer then reposted the photo to his Instagram Story, seemingly confirming the two are dating.
Turner is a social media influencer with nearly one million followers on Instagram. The 30-year-old is a vegan and is very passionate about animal rights.
It is unclear exactly how the two met.
New Relationship Comes Weeks After Schwer Said He’s Taking Things “Slow”
Earlier this month, the 30-year-old aspiring model told OK! Magazine that he was taking things “verrrrrry slowly,” and did not disclose he was in a relationship at the time of that interview. Though, the “Bachelorette” winner did say, “Right now, I’m focused on being very intentional with my time and who I spend it with. I can say I’m finally in a place where I am allowing myself to meet new people.”
In regards to a relationship, specifically, Schwer said, “I want to find my best friend, someone that I can vibe with every day. I want a partnership where we can lean on and support each other through the highs and lows. Someone open to adventure, but also down for the occasional White Lotus binge-watch in one sitting. And, fiery romance. Because at the end of the day, I’m a hopeful romantic. That’s not too much to ask for….right?”
He also went on to explain how mental health played a part in his last relationship and how he continues to work on himself and grow as a person. “[I] try to look at all areas of my life with a growth mindset, and always learn from my experiences,” he told OK! when discussing his time on ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”
Schwer had to deal with the loss of his father while also navigating a new relationship, which ended in an engagement just a few weeks after he met Windey, which is a lot of change happening at once.
“I will say that I struggled personally with my mental health during my last relationship, and wish I could have coped with them better,” the 30-year-old continued before adding, “I was learning how to navigate the loss of my father and a new engagement, all at once, and on a public scale nonetheless. There were times I felt lost and unmotivated, and unfortunately this transferred into a few different areas of my life. I didn’t have the tools I’ve since learned on how to handle the pressure and pain I was feeling.”
