However, after Aven spent time with Rachel’s friends Sam and Nate, she expressed some misgivings about the timing of a potential engagement.
“If she comes home unengaged, it’s going to be very difficult,” said Rachel’s friend Nate, after hearing Aven question whether it’s the right time to propose. “She doesn’t want to go home with a boyfriend.”
When Rachel found out, she was shocked by what her friends learned, explaining that Aven said he was “100 percent” ready to take a knee.
“He knows he wants to be with you. I think he is being very logical about it,” Sam explained to the co-lead. “He said, ‘I want Rachel in my life forever.’ He’s, like, that’s not a question. It’s like, ‘Shall we commit right away?’”
The flight instructor then sat down with Aven to talk about what his friends told him.
“It’s not about not being ready,” he insisted. “And I want you to know that nothing has changed in terms of how I feel about you. I’m falling in love with you. And I see a life with you after this. And I want to get to that point with you so much. Like, I just want to make sure it’s 100 percent correct for both of us right now at this very moment.”
Things grew tense between the couple when Aven noticed that frank tino he was still in the picture, but he kept insisting that he didn’t change his mind.
“I want to make sure the time is right, Rachel,” he reiterated. “I’m not trying to yell. … I’m trying. I’m very passionate. I am sorry.”
The pair hugged each other, for the time being, but when it came time for Rachel’s family to meet Tino, she admitted she was “not in a good mood” after what happened with Aven, although she was “thrilled” that their parents did. spend time with the general contractor. Later, she informed her family that Tino’s parents are not enthusiastic about the process, but that she hopes (and he told her) that they accept.

After Tino’s time with Rachel’s family, she went on another date with Aven, and their conversation didn’t go well. “I need you to know how hard it is for me to walk into my family and say, ‘When Aven tells me something, he means it and he would never lie to me.’ I think the only thing I wanted from this was when you sat down with my family and we were on the same page,” Rachel said. “I feel so surprised for you.”
Aven tried to reassure Rachel that his feelings hadn’t changed, but admitted that he’s worried he’s “gotten caught” in the process when it comes to being ready for a commitment.
“I want to commit. … I’m not willing to sacrifice that at the end of the day,” Rachel said as she began to sob. As he continued to try to say that he wanted to be with her, she was unconvinced and ended things with him.
