The Bachelor's Brittany has shared why she never 'fought' for Nick Cummins.

It’s been months since Nick Cummins a.k.a the Honey Badger threw Australia a curveball by leaving his two finalists heartbroken and walking out of The Bachelor Australia finale alone.

One of those women was Brittany Hockley.

On Friday night, the 30-year-old radiographer posted a lengthy message on Instagram addressing the question she says she’s ‘been asked quite a few times by women and young girls.”

Why didn’t she fight for Cummins? Why was she so quick to say goodbye?

To quickly recap for anyone who’s erased all memories of The Bachelor 2018 from their brains, Cummins broke up with both Brittany and the other finalist Sophie Tieman, saying he wasn’t ready to full commit to either of them.

Instead of asking where things went wrong or why he could’t commit, Brittany said with a straight face something along the lines of, ‘cheers for wasting my time, have a good life.’

In the Instagram post, Brittany explained her previous relationship experiences taught her a valuable lesson – that someone who doesn’t love you back isn’t worth loving at all.

Guys I’m about to impart some knowledge and get really deep and stuff so listen up good and proper… A question I‘be been asked quite a few times by women and young girls: “At the end, Why didn’t you talk to him more about his decision and ask him why!? You just accepted it and walked away?” To this question I say this… “Listen my friend, if one person doesn’t want the relationship, then it’s simply not a fit. No sense trying to figure out why they don’t want it. No sense blaming it on their commitment issues. No sense waiting around for them to realize they wanted it after all. Because it doesn’t matter why they don’t want it. What matters is that you are met heart-on by a fully engaged partner. If they don’t want it, then you don’t want it, because you don’t want to be with someone who isn’t there for it fully. That’s the thing about relationships — it’s an agreement that has to be signed by both souls. If one doesn’t sign, then nothing has been lost. If it’s not a fit for them, it’s not a fit for you either.” So just hold your head high, walk away and order room service ????????‍♀️ But seriously, know that you are enough, on your own, just as you are. ???????? Deep for a Friday right!? Hope this helps some of you! If you know someone that needs to hear this tell them :) Now go get salty ???? ☀️ #gooseberryintimates #goodvibes

“Listen my friend, if one person doesn’t want the relationship, then it’s simply not a fit,” she said.

“No sense trying to figure out why they don’t want it. No sense blaming it on their commitment issues. No sense waiting around for them to realise they wanted it after all. Because it doesn’t matter why they don’t want it.”

Brittany also said she wouldn’t want to be with someone who isn’t 100 per cent invested in her, which is 100 per cent fair enough.

“What matters is that you are met heart-on by a fully engaged partner. If they don’t want it, then you don’t want it, because you don’t want to be with someone who isn’t there for it fully.”

“That’s the thing about relationships — it’s an agreement that has to be signed by both souls. If one doesn’t sign, then nothing has been lost. If it’s not a fit for them, it’s not a fit for you either.”

Despite being broken up with in spectacular fashion on reality TV, it appears both Brittany and Sophie came out if this situation on top.

Not only are they now best mates, they’re also reportedly in talks with Network 10 to potentially star as co-Bachelorettes in 2019.

Do you agree with Brittany’s relationship advice? Have you learnt that lesson in previous relationships?
