Burnett said she's learned that for a relationship to work, you have to "actually let your guard down, let yourself trust somebody, which is really hard to do."
Still, she said she was hesitant to "declare it right now as a breakup," noting that the two are still spending time together.
"He's actually going to be coming over once I get done with this, because he has to bring me all my stuff back from his house," she said.
Burnett's relationship with Slater came after her split from Kristian Haggerty. The two, who marked the Bachelor franchise's first same-sex couple, got engaged on the season finale of Bachelor in Paradise last year. They confirmed they had called it quits with a joint statement in October.
Last month, Burnett told PEOPLE her relationship with Slater was "stronger than ever."
"It's been nice getting to spend so much time together and getting to know each other so much better," she said. "We're getting to learn how each other lives and how to work through whenever we are getting on each other's nerves, and be better at that."
