Playing 'Bachelorette' JoJo Fletcher Talks Finding Love on Upcoming Season: I Am Already 'Connecting With These Guys'

JoJo Fletcher's upcoming season of The Bachelorette is already off to a promising start.

The charming 25-year-old real estate developer recently talked to Good Morning America about how her experience so far has been -- filming is currently underway -- and revealed that she's already started developing feelings for certain contestants.

"I am connecting with these guys," she said. "I'm having fun with them. I'm actually feeling feelings, which I didn't expect so early on."

And her goal is clear.

"I want to be engaged," she said. "I want marriage. I want a family, so I feel like this could happen right now."

In the Bachelor season finale, 28-year-old software salesman Ben Higgins picked 25-year-old flight attendant, Lauren Bushnell, over Fletcher. Although Fletcher says she's no longer in touch with Higgins, she has no hard feelings towards him.

"Ben and I don't communicate," she shared. "I kinda have my relationship with Lauren, which is my first priority. I spent those last couple of days and weeks trying to recover from my breakup with Ben."

"I went into that morning feeling like I was going to get engaged," she admitted about the heartbreaking finale. "I had mentally prepared myself for that, but you know, it didn't work out."

Fletcher definitely now knows what she's looking for in a future husband.

"I'm looking for a man that can make me feel safe and protected, and somebody that I can trust," she said.

Earlier this month, Bushnell admitted to ET that it wasn't easy seeing her new fiance kiss other women on The Bachelor, including Fletcher, who Higgins also controversially said "I love you" to.

"It's so confusing because here we are weeks out from being engaged and [the] relationship [has progressed] even further [than] when we first got engaged," Bushnell explained to ET exclusively. "I know this happened weeks ago, but you're re-watching it. It's like 'you're cheating on me' or something…"

"It's not fun to watch your fiance kissing other women, but it's also something that happened in the past," she added.
