Who is Matt Bolton?

According to his LinkedIn profile, Matt has been working with the private jet charter service since September 2022. He has previously served as the Vice President for LFC industries. Matt also has a mechanical engineering degree from Texas State Technical College. His Instagram profile has snapshots of his fun time with his friends, and he may have a four-legged friend he likes to call his “partner in crime”.
Matt’s major reveal about his divorce
On the show, Matt impressed Colleen after she faced brutal rejections from Brennon Lemieux and Cole Barnett. The vulnerable Colleen decided to open up to Matt, who in turn shared a major detail about his past. The sales executive told the ballet dancer that before entering the show, he was in a 10-year-long relationship. And when he was at the ripe age of 18, he got married to his childhood sweetheart. But the stars didn’t align for Matt and his ex-wife, as the two ended up getting divorced six years later when Matt was only 24 years old. “I just felt hopeless”, Matt explained to Colleen while talking about his divorce, adding, “it put a lot of walls up for me.” The duo connected over their shared vulnerabilities and desire to find a partner that can help them open up.
Colleen complimented Matt for his positivity and his “Matthew McConaughey” voice while Matt found Colleen to have a “cute little voice.” Matt had expressed during his confessional that he was looking for a partner who could challenge him and who he could be immature with even at an older age. And Colleen seemed to be exactly that for him. Later in Episode 2, Matt confessed his love to Colleen, who delightedly reciprocated. In Episode 4 of ‘Love Is Blind’, he finally popped the question to Colleen, and the duo got engaged.
‘Love is Blind’ Season 3 is available on Netflix to watch. The next three episodes will release on October 26.
