The Bachelor Nation stars first confirmed their relationship during an appearance on the Today show in late January
The pair have been dating for a few months, but first confirmed their relationship during an appearance on the Today show in late January.
“I had a funny confession. It has to do with you,” Bristowe admitted to Tartick on Tuesday’s episode. “The first time Jason and I ever hooked up… the first time we actually felt romantic towards each other, we meet up and it’s hot and heavy.”
“For this time, we knew it was on,” she added.
Perhaps oversharing slightly, the star said they did not have sex due to the fact that Bristowe was on her period, but that didn’t stop the couple from getting intimate in other ways.
“I was like ‘Yo, let’s just dry hump.’ So we did. Literally, I had pants on,” she explained. “We were fully clothed and hot and heavy.”
“In five minutes, he picked my nose and gave me an orgasm,” she joked, noting that Tartick pointed out and removed the booger inside of her nose after their hookup. “So yeah, it was good.”
While appearing on the Today show in January, Tartick explained that he and Bristowe, who met on her podcast, had been a steady item “for about a month or so.”
The confirmation came a little over a week after Bristowe referred to herself as Tartick’s girlfriend during a trip to Seattle.
“We were friends. A little banter here and there and friendship turned into a relationship,” explained Tartick, who placed third on Becca Kufrin‘s season of The Bachelorette last year.
In February, the pair made their social media debut together, posting sweet messages to each other in honor of Valentine’s Day. “So grateful for you,” Tartick captioned a photo of Bristowe wrapping her hands around his neck.
Meanwhile, Bristowe’s post featured a lengthy quote about the importance of finding true happiness, along with a photo of the pair together. “Thank you @jason_tartick for being you,” she wrote.
The couple also celebrated the holiday together by jetting off to Boston for a romantic weekend, which included a fancy dinner at Bistro Du Midi and a private dance party to the Hamilton and Aladdin soundtracks in their hotel room.
The new Bachelor Nation couple’s relationship came nearly three months after Bristowe confirmed her split from Shawn Booth — whom she met, fell in love with and got engaged to on the season 19 finale of The Bachelorette in 2015 — in November 2018.
“After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends and we will continue to support each other,” Bristowe and Booth said in a joint statement.
“Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time,” they continued.
“It’s nerve-wracking every time I pick up my phone. I haven’t been on Twitter in months just because I don’t want to scroll the mentions. Going on Instagram, I do that for business purposes, and always get caught with scrolling. that’s always tough. You just have a pit in your stomach.”
He continued: “That’s the hard part and with her moving on so quickly, I just have a tough time understanding why she would put this out everywhere, or blasting it all over the place, knowing that it could hurt.”
