Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell–who are still not engaged–are struggling on “Couples Therapy” as Nikki recently deleted her Twitter account.

Ferell revealed in an interview with Us Weekly why she decided to delete her account.

“I actually deactivated my Twitter just so I wouldn’t have to deal with people hiding behind their computers, talking [expletive,]” she said.

“I feel like it’s the best decision not only for myself, but for my relationship.”

Galavis still has his account but noted that “The easiest thing to do is press the block button!” When his girlfriend deleted her account, he said via Twitter: “Guys @Nikki_Ferrell DEACTIVATED her account to see who WOULD say things to her FACE if there was no computer to hide BEHIND…”

The couple also addressed questions about moving in together.

“There isn’t a move planned, but that’s not to say there won’t be a change in the next six months,” Nikki said. “This isn’t just a relationship between Juan and me, there are people to consider on both sides. I wouldn’t move to Miami, though. I don’t look cute in all that humidity!”

And asked if there’s been any engagement talk, Nikki said “If you mean me describing what kind of ring I want, then yes! I want this to last forever, and if it takes us four more years to figure that out, I’m fine.”

Galavis added, “Just because we were on a TV show doesn’t mean we are not a regular couple. If engagement is meant to be, it will be. I wonder how many people get engaged (after) knowing a person for, like, 32 hours.”

Meanwhile, Ferrell said in a recent episode that she struggles with things like photo requests from fans, which Pablo has no problem with.

“I feel like the more we open up this relationship to show people into it, the more it gives them [expletive] to attack. I want it to be a normal relationship. I want to protect it,” she said.

“I feel like Juan Pablo took a lot of [expletive]  from people in the media for not saying, ‘I love you,’ and I just want to have my normal life.”

“That’s one of the reasons why we’re here,” she added. “It’s a process to figure out how to handle these situations.”
