After a week of drama in the Bachelor mansion – which is a Pennsylvania resort this season – Katie, 29, went on her first solo date.
The pair shared a lot of laughs when they pranked the leading man’s best friend, Tyler Cameron, at the hotel’s spa.
While the hunk got a massage, Katie and Matt secretly told the masseuse to say uncomfortable things during the relaxing experience.
All seemed to be going well, with Matt even exclaiming he was “blown away” by how “incredible” Katie is.
However, he admitted he struggled to see a “romantic side” with the Oregon native.
During the evening portion of their one-on-one, the couple sat down at a candlelit dinner before opening up about what they’re looking for in a relationship.
Katie told her man: ”I want to meet someone who's also ready and knows who they are because then there's no changing anybody.
“I can see this continuing and I really am hopeful that my love story is your love story and I'm here 'til the end if you want me to be.”
Matt, 28, appeared overcome with emotion by what he was just told and proceeded to grab the rose placed on the table.
”You’ve been honest with me and I owe the same honesty to you," he told her.
“And the truth is, my relationship with some of the other women in the house has progressed further along than ours has up until this point, and I can't give you this rose tonight.
“And that's not a slight at who you are and what our time's been together.
“I just haven't had those feelings that I need to have for finding a wife in this process,” he added.
