by Candice Jalili

Don't pay attention to the rumors, people. Blake Horstmann's response to Becca Kufrin dating rumors confirms they are not an item. “Me and Becca are friends,” Hortsmann revealed during a Nov. 30 Q&A on his Instagram page, per Us Weekly. “Let the woman be single for a while she don’t need no damn man to be happy. She is living her best life.” Hortsmann later noted that he believes there is “so much pressure on women to find a man” and that he feels "it’s ridiculous." Love that feminist take from him.

During a Nov. 2 appearance on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti's Almost Famous podcast, Hortsmann confirmed he's been chatting with Kufrin since her split from Garret Yrigoyen, which she announced in September. “We’ve chatted a little bit. I told her I support her, and I hope she’s doing well and everything, but it’s just a friendship,” he shared. “We have a good relationship. I think, for the most part, we’ve been friendly the whole time since even the finale. There’s never been any kind of weirdness between us.” So, friends? Friends.

As for Yrigoyen, Hortsmann told Iaconetti and Higgins that he hasn't spoken to him "in a bit." Yrigoyen is now publicly in a new relationship with Alex Farrar and Hortsmann seemed to wish him nothing but the best. He shared during his Almost Famous appearance, “I haven’t chatted with him about the relationship or anything... But I think everybody deserves happiness, so I hope this one sticks for him, I guess.”

Kufrin, on the other, hand seems to be enjoying single life. "Part of me is a little excited now that I'm, like, you know, newly single to see what fellas might come my way," she told Lindsay during the Sept. 29 episode of Bachelor Happy Hour. And Lindsay seems to be ready, willing, and able to set her up as soon as the time comes.

[I think about setting her up] all the time, but I want Becca to do it when she’s ready. I know that she is fully enjoying herself in L.A. She’s always wanted to be here. And those are sacrifices that you make in a relationship when maybe one partner doesn’t. So now that she is not tied down, she can live her best life, which she’s doing,” Lindsay told Us Weekly in November. “And I think Becca is open to start dating again, but obviously coming out of an engagement, she wants to make sure that she takes her time, and she does right, unlike other people.”

Um, did you spot that shade at Yrigoyen and his new girlfriend? Now that is what I call a ride or die bestie.
