The intense scrutiny over Juan Pablo Galavis' relationship with Nikki Ferrell is not yet over, but the former football player is happy that he is largely left alone these days so that he can continue to find true love without being bothered about the media.
Galavis recently tweeted about being glad that the media "circus" of appearing on dating reality show, "The Bachelor," is behind him.

Amidst cheating rumors, Galavis and Ferrell appear to be going strong ever since "The Bachelor" ended. The rumors were aided by the fact that Galavis refused to say whether he loved Ferrell or not during the After the Final Rose episode.
Instead of opening up about their relationship, the 32-year-old accused the show of "boxing with him" throughout the season.
"We're very happy we're starting our relationship right now," Juan Pablo said at the time. "We are done with the show, so done with the show."
At the time, Galavis defended his decision to refuse to say "I love you" to Ferrell stating that he wanted to get to know the person before even thinking about a commitment of any sorts.
"It's not just important to take it slow with Nikki, or take it slow with somebody else," the former soccer professional was quoted as saying by OK Magazine.
"In life, you have to take the pace that love goes. You don't force it. You just don't force love, you don't force falling in love, you don't force being in love—you just become. I don't know how to say that in English, but you just feel it. When you feel good with somebody, you don't have to force saying something or doing something, if you're just getting to know that person. Right now is the time for me to get to know Nikki in her house, at her job, on the streets. We weren't able to do that before [the show ended]."
But since then he has proclaimed his love for Ferrell on his Twitter account. In April, he tweeted that one of the things he loved about Ferrell was her love for her work.
"@Nikki_Ferrell LOVES her JOB and that's ONE of the things I LOVE about her..." Galavis wrote alongside a photo of Ferrell in her work uniform.
There are even talks that the two might get married soon, after Galavis declared his intention of getting married in Venezuela.
