Nothing about The Bachelor or The Bachelorette is normal, so it’s not surprising to hear former Bachelorette Tayshia Adams say the same about her relationship with fiancé Zac Clark.

It has been two months since fans gushed over Zac’s romantic proposal, and while the couple is still very much together, they’re also aware that their whirlwind love story is not normal.

“It’s not a normal relationship,” Adams said in a recent interview with Marie Claire. “We’re dating right now while being engaged.”

While they went from strangers to fiancés very quickly, they don’t exactly have a timeline for when they will say “I do.”

“At first, Zac was the person to be like, ‘We could get married next week.’ And I was like, ‘Slow your roll.’ I’d love to date a year. And now I’m like, ‘You want to … maybe next month?’ And he’s like, ‘Tayshia, slow your roll,’” she told the mag. “We’re back and forth. But there’s no timeline. It’s definitely going to happen. I just don’t know when.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Tayshia also spoke about what showcasing their relationship on TV could mean for some viewers at home.

“Being in a mixed relationship with someone that has never dated anybody of color before and sharing that experience, I would never shy away from opportunities like that,” Adams said. She went on to explain that she and Clark began to prep for the “possible backlash that I didn’t choose someone who looks like me” before the season aired.

After her whirlwind of a season on the Bachelorette, the 30-year-old television personality and podcaster says she’s eager to keep educating people about issues of race, just like she did on the show.

“I’m going to show up and I will speak my mind if I’m being asked,” she says, but Tayshia doesn’t want to be called an activist. “There are people that are phenomenal at it, but I’m still learning,” Adams explains. “I’m more so in the realm of teaching people just to love one another, no matter who it is.”
