Because of the nature of Sean’s work FIFO, Tracey says there was a lack of stability and commitment.
"My core needs in a relationship are commitment, stability and security, and Sean can’t give that to me," she added.
"That’s why I can’t move to Melbourne with him, I need my friends and my support around me. I’m not ready to move."
However Tracey says she is still looking for love and admitted she will “always have a soft spot” for MAFS ex-husband, Dean Wells.
“I hear what he’s up to – it’s hard not to,” she says. “I’m sure he’ll be happy to hear about this break-up. I reckon he will [call me].”
“The way me and Dean ended things, you never say never. Some couples can take a break and have some space and come back,” she admitted.
“I’m ready and I know what I want.”
