In the years since viewers first met Clare Crawley on Season 18 of The Bachelor, the hairstylist has gone through her fair share of relationship woes in the public eye.

After her romance with Juan Pablo Galavis crashed and burned on the Season 18 finale back in 2014, Clare appeared on two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, and on the only season of Bachelor Winter Games.

More than two years after she called off her engagement to Winter Games co-star Benoit Beausejour-Savard, Clare got another chance to find love as the lead of The Bachelorette Season 16.

Though she had plenty of suitors to choose from and weeks to make connections, Clare immediately zeroed in on model Dale Moss. The couple got engaged on the show before Tayshia Adams took over as the lead, and it seemed like Clare had finally found her person.

However, Dale and Clare first parted ways in early 2021, and after a brief reconciliation, they broke up for good in the fall of 2021. It appears as if Dale has since moved on, as he's been linked to businesswoman/designer Galey Alix (née Gravenstein). Clare also moved on as well, and about a month after going public with beau Ryan Dawkins, she has confirmed that she is engaged.

Read on to find out the latest in Clare and Dale's current love lives.

Who is Clare Crawley dating now?

About a year after her relationship with Dale ended for good, Clare has found a connection with a new beau. The former Bachelorette confirmed that she was in a relationship on Sept. 6 when she shared a video with a mystery man on her Instagram feed.

In the clip, Clare and her boyfriend sang along to the Chris Brown and Yung Thug song, "Go Crazy," in the car together.

"Him," she captioned the video, along with a pink heart emoji.

Though Clare didn't share her boyfriend's name at the time, a source told Us Weekly that the 41-year-old is in a relationship with Ryan Dawkins.

According to the source, Clare and Ryan became friends about a year before they went official on social media. They began dating several months before they went public, but Clare wanted to wait to share the news with her followers until they had "built a real, solid foundation."

The insider also shared that Ryan is a dad, and that he isn't dating the reality star to get in the spotlight.

"He's mature, career-driven and a good father," the source said about the 47-year-old. "He isn't in it for fame, which is what makes him different from her past relationships."

Per the outlet, Ryan is the CEO of Mascot Sports, which is a marketing agency.

Before Clare went official with Ryan, she was linked to former Bachelorette contestant, Blake Monar, and to comedian, Jeff Dye. Neither romance was ever confirmed, and the lead has clearly moved on with Ryan.

Clare Crawley and Ryan Dawkins announced their engagement in October of 2022.

Just over a month after they confirmed their relationship, Ryan and Clare announced their engagement. Ryan popped the question to the former Bachelorette at the RiSE festival lantern release in Las Vegas on Oct. 7.

People confirmed the exciting news, and Clare released a statement about the proposal to the outlet.

"I am over the moon! This was the last thing I expected right now, especially coming from where I was a year ago," Clare told the outlet. "It's just been a serious journey, and Ryan has been by my side since the very beginning."

Clare told People that Ryan's intentions have been pure from the start.

"Really what he's in it for is my heart, and he is so consistent and so vocal about how much he loves me," she added. "It is something I have never experienced... It's been such a gift having him in my life."

The former 'Bachelorette' star's ex, Dale Moss, is also rumored to be in a relationship.

A few months before Clare went Instagram official with Ryan, her ex-fiancé, Dale, made headlines for his own romantic life in June 2022. A source told Us Weekly at the time that the model/actor was newly in a relationship with designer/Goldman Sachs businesswoman Galey Alix.

The two have yet to post together on their respective Instagram feeds (though Dale shared a video with a mystery lady in his car in July 2022).

New episodes of Bachelor in Paradise air on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. You can also stream the show on Hulu.
