Although Paige had previously said in interviews she wouldn’t want a proposal from Craig until they’d been together for at least a year, she later said she’d actually like much more time before taking the huge step.

“Honestly, Carl [Radke] and Lindsay getting engaged made everyone start asking me [about my own possible engagement], so I’m livid,” she said at BravoCon in October 2022. “I am not in a rush to do anything. I feel like I really love where we are right now.”

Last Spring, Paige brought up marriage again: “The thought of getting engaged and getting married and being someone’s wife is very f—king scary,” she admitted on an episode of Summer House.

And in a later episode, Craig also expressed concerns about their relationship: “Everyone in the world can see that something is wrong except the one person that I wanna see,” he said. When Paige asked him why he was crying, he added: “Every time I get sad about something or I have a feeling, your response is, ‘Stop being a f—king p—y.'”
