Last night (July 28), fans of 'The Bachelorette' watched as Andi Dorfman broke up with Nick Viall and became engaged to Josh Murray. After an intense season of dating Andi, Nick was understandably taken aback when she abruptly ended their relationship.

During 'The Bachelorette' finale, host Chris Harrison revealed Nick made numerous attempts to contact Andi, including writing her a letter. Although the contents of the letter were not broadcast during the show, 'The Bachelorette' Facebook page posted the message this morning. We've posted some highlights from the letter below.

The emotional letter begins:

You lit me up.  You made me feel those things that people go a lifetime to find, and I feel like I made you feel the same.  I truly hoped we would have made it into the real world, where there would be no arbitrary dead-line, where those stresses that came with that environment would have melted away, where we could have had the goofy, fun, exciting relationship that I know we could have.  What we had was real to me, and it was amazing.

He describes their relationship as a "road less traveled" and recounts the moment she ended things with him. However, he believes that although their connection was filled with "passion" and "intensity," it was a risk worth taking.

A lot of things about us scared me.  I really didn’t know if we would make it, but I was willing to put it all on the line for us because I truly believed the connection we had was incredibly unique and special.  To me, if there is no risk of being totally crushed and heartbroken then there is no way it can be great.

Nick concludes the letter by signaling that he is ready to find closure. He wishes Andi happiness, while reminding her that, to him, their relationship was worth risking heartbreak.

If I have to move on, I will look to find amazing with someone else know that some day I will.  I just know I would much rather turn my life upside down and risk it all to have amazing with you.

The letter definitely brings a new perspective to Andi and Nick's relationship. During last night's tension-filled finale, Nick was clearly overcome with emotion, and this letter clarifies the message he wanted to give to Andi.
