Higgins, 27, told PEOPLE exclusively after being confirmed as the Bachelor that he was “not fearful of the idea of getting married.”
“I’m ready to share my life with somebody,” Higgins said. “As soon as I can find that person, it seems like the better life will be.”
As for his ideal woman, Higgins said he’s looking for a “partner and a best friend.”
“Ideally at the end of this, I will be proposing,” he added. “That would be a really cool thing.”
