When Did Amanda Kaylor and Eric Schwer Split?
In March 2022, however, the now-reality star broke the news to Amanda that he was going on the show, which led to their split after more than two months of dating. On March 10, just two weeks before filming started, Erich texted her saying that he was going on The Bachelorette.
“I know this isn’t ideal, I wanted to do this to see if there was something else, I could do with my life,” Erich’s alleged text to Amanda read after breaking the news to her, before later saying he can’t be the best version of himself for her. “Not until I figure out who I am. Not that this is the answer, but I need a change. I’m stuck in my career path and I’m miserable with it. I don’t want this to be the rest of my life,” an additional text read.
Two days after the real estate analyst dropped the news, Amanda ended their relationship as he decided he was going on the show — but Erich still confessed his feelings for her and even asked to meet once her returned from filming.
“I made a rash decision that was beyond selfish .. Can we talk when I am back in L.A.? I needed to go home for a little to be with my parents,” Erich’s alleged March 22 text read, while also sending her two dozen roses.
Once Amanda responded the following day, agreeing to meet up, her text went green as Erich had already started filming.
