Let's Talk - The Bachelorette

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Now if you didn't watch last night's episode of The Bachelorette or see any spoilers of what happened and want to find out on your own, stop reading now...

Now until this season I never really got into the show. I always found it a little ridiculous honestly - I mean one person dating several other people for a few weeks and then getting engaged to that person? Come one, really? How good of a relationship can you really form while making out with 10 other people? This is where my personal views come into play though. I am a monogamous relationship type of girl. I have been cheated on in the passed and also been the unknowing girl that the guy was cheating on his girlfriend with. It sucks. I don't know how someone can function in that situation willingly - but to each his own.

For this season, I started out watching pretty regularly, but after a few episodes I lost touch and would catch up watching clips or the full episode via Hulu. Naturally I started to form opinions and choose favorites among the guys. My picks were Chris and Josh, and like a lot of other people in the world, I found Nick creepy.

Okay, so on to last night's episode. I came away from it with a few strong feelings - in no particular order:

  1. I have a lot of respect for Andi
  2. Nick is a douchebag
  3. "babe" bothers me even more now
  4. I am a sucker for love stories/proposals no matter what the situation is
My respect for Andi is warranted I swear. Let's rewind to a couple weeks ago during the "Overnight Dates" when she kindly let Chris know that she wasn't feeling it and let him go privately instead of in front of the other guys. So kind. Yes it sucks and he should have stayed because he isn't a douche bag like the other one I will talk about later, but she has a heart. Being let go during the rose ceremony would only make his heartbreak more public. 

This leads me to point number 2 - Nick. Who calls out another person on national television (and outs themselves too) about their sex life!? Yes, we all know that it probably happens, I mean they have a date that includes a room key for goodness sake, but you don't talk about it. Dick move buddy. Yeah, she may have led him on a bit, but she has to. It is a TV show and she can't tell them one way or another. And again, she showed she has a heart by letting him go privately instead of that night when he planned on proposing. That was a low blow buddy.

My next thought is one that has been longstanding. Nate and I have never been big on pet names (we tried, its odd). Honestly, the closest thing we have to pet names is calling each other dude and laughing about it. It really stems back to a couple we knew is school that called each other babe in a really whiny tone and every other word. So when Andi and Josh were saying it over and over at the end of every sentence, we just looked at each other and laughed.

Finally, I have a confession... I cried a little. Yup, I cried about a proposal that came after 6 weeks of dating multiple men and was done on national television. I am a hopeless romantic and I love seeing other people happy. I was also extremely happy for Josh because for a second there it looked like his life was over as Andi vaguely went on a very serious rant before saying she loved him. Good for them! I hope they have many years of happiness and become one of the few couples that actually last after the show. 

Anyway, rant over. What did you think about the final rose ceremony? Even better, how do you feel about the whole Nick debacle? Am I alone in my strong feelings?

Oh, last night I decided to jump back into the Twitter world and I found that @PrincessProbz is super funny and you should definitely follow.
