Sean didn't get a chance to meet Ricki in person, but he's not so sure that would have swayed Emily's decision in another direction. He said, "She may have been attracted to the way I interact with Ricki, but I think at the end of the day it comes down to me and her."
Taking an optimistic outlook on singledom, Sean said, "I think ultimately the heartbreak is going to be healthy for me and I'm going to learn from it. I'm looking forward to finding that next love of my life."
Based on the fan reception, Sean won't be available for long. Better rush to get his digits fast! The Bachelorette: Men Tell All episode airs on Monday night on ABC.
