After leaving the Love Island Villa, things didn’t work out between Al Perkins and Jessica Losurdo.
But it turns out the exes are still on good terms with Jessica making an appearance on Al’s new podcast Back to realitywhich is co-organised with Taku Chimwaza.
Al and Jessica explained the reason for their breakup and the former MAFS boyfriend even revealed that there is a new lady in his life.
Taku was interested in hearing Jess’s side of their breakup first and asked her about the breakup.
“As soon as we left the Villa, I got different vibes from Al right away. I just got more friend vibes,” Jess explained.

“We did a lot of banter in the Villa, but I don’t think we were at that level of Claudia and Austen or Phoebe and Mitch, we were just very playful, very funny.
“As soon as we left the Villa, our friendship stayed in tact, but the romance and intimacy fell away and that’s when I knew and there were just alarm bells.”
While Jess admitted she knew in her heart she wasn’t meant to be with Al, she said it wasn’t for lack of trying.
“We talk on the phone every day, we see each other, he [Al] I met my mother,” he added.
“I felt like something wasn’t right, so I called Al, and I think he knew right away, and I said, ‘Hey, do you just want to be mates?’

Taku asked if the distance between Jess and Al had anything to do with their breakup.
Although Jess was quick to say that distance had nothing to do with their split, Al disagreed.
“I remember going to your house and I took a wrong turn, a wrong exit off the freeway and then it took another hour to get there,” Al explained.
“Then I said, ‘This is too long, I really don’t want to drive there.'”
Jess laughed at Al’s reasoning, pointing out that the pair only live half an hour away from each other.

In the podcast, Jess also revealed that she is still single and happy to stay that way.
“My dating life is very non-existent, I’m not seeing anyone, I’m not talking to anyone, I’m not texting anyone,” she said.
While Jess joked that she “needs a long layoff after dating Al,” she admitted that she’s not exactly single.
“I wouldn’t say I’m single, but I’m very happy where I’m at and that’s all I’ll say about it,” Al said.
Taku continued to press the matter, asking Al if he had a new love interest.
“I’m happy with someone else,” Al confirmed.

After dating Al herself, Jessica gave her ex some advice to make things work better with his new lady than they did with her.
“I wrote a list of rules for Al to follow with his new partner,” Jessica began.
“Rule #1: Flirting is cheating. If you’re exclusive, you can’t go out and flirt with all these girls, that’s off limits.”
Jessica’s second rule is “a phone call once a day is not enough to keep a girl happy.”
“Al would call me once a day for 10 minutes just to tell me he called me,” Jessica said.

His list didn’t end either.
“Rule #3: Taking a girl on ice cream dates all the time won’t cut it,” he continued.
While it’s clear why things didn’t work out between the two, Al said he would happily take Jessica’s comments.
