Is it okay to stay with a lender your realtor recommended if you don't end up using the realtor?

My realtor is really nice and I really like her. I've met with her once to go over what I'm looking for and another time to view three homes that were for sale. She asked me to go to open houses, so I did. And subsequently fell in love with a house that is a for sale by owner that refuses to pay commission costs. I don't have the funds to pay her commission fees, and I feel absolutely terrible about telling her. Will it be even worse if I stay with the lender she recommended? I really like my lender as well. I have been feeling just awful about this situation and have been stressed for DAYS about it. I don't want to be a bad person, but I also really don't want to switch lenders. Thank you so much for any advice.
