‘I think people think [Matt and I aren’t friends] because we’re just not in each other’s everyday lives like we used to be,’ Tyler told the publication on Sunday. ‘I think it’s part of growing up. It’s part of entering a relationship.’
Tyler, who has been friends with Matt since 2015, acknowledged how romantic relationships can change friendships.
‘We all have those friends that they grow up, they start dating their person, they get married, they do their thing and you see him when you see him,’ he said.

The Bachelorette alum raised eyebrows in May after admitting on Watch What Happens Live that he has a ‘love-hate’ relationship with Rachael.
‘I was definitely going through my own s**t.. We just have our own ways of clashing,’ Tyler told Us. ‘I don’t like listening to people sometimes. And she’s strong and she has a really good opinion on a lot of things. And sometimes I don’t want to hear it.’
Despite their differences, Tyler still spoke highly of Rachael, insisting she ‘always means well’ and is a ‘really good person’ who is ‘good’ for his best friend.

In terms of his own personal life, Tyler has found love once again.
