Ryan and Travis: Another Bachelorette Commentary

Hands down, Ryan is gorgeous, funny, charming, endearing. On the flip side, what he wants in a woman is much like a robot: not too emotional, logical, servant, etc. Some of the attributes on his list are good of course, like faithful, but as Emily says, there is nothing on his list about love. Kind of sad. And when he leaves her after not getting the rose, the one thing he really focuses on is how he looks, how his personality is portrayed, on camera. Not one tear. Because he knows getting women is not difficult for him. And I think he assumes that he will be the next Bachelor.

As for Travis, your heart just breaks. Look at the difference between Travis leaving, Alejandro leaving, and Ryan. Profound difference. And I just wanted to yell at my television, “Yes Travis, you will find someone!” But of course that would have been pathetic, so I didn’t yell it. I just thought it. It’s a toss up for me between Alejandro and Travis for the new Bachelor. Or that sweet man, sorry I can’t remember his name, with the disability. As I said before, this group of guys, especially the ones left now, have huge hearts, and real emotion, like Doug did on Monday. It made my heart hurt. They all deserve someone amazing, and what they don’t know is that they will probably get more offers of love than they can handle. I just hope they find someone perfect for each of them.

Anyway, just my thoughts, and I already know I am too committed to watching other people fall in love instead of finding my own. I just don’t know what that feels like, so I stay away from it rather than walking toward it. I didn’t know that PTSD was why I never could connect to anyone. Why I couldn’t stay. Or love very deeply. So I live vicariously through all the romance movies and novels and reality shows, and that’s how I feel anything at all.


The Bachelorette Commentary

I know this isn’t really literary, but I had to say something about what’s going on with the show. lol

First of all, I think Emily seems very sweet. As for the guys, wow, what a great group of people they are. Now I would have kicked Kalen out when he shushed me the first time, and I would have kicked Ryan out for his weirdness in the beginning, but I would have been wrong about Ryan. He is so gorgeous and so neat. Yeah yeah I know. I must have better things to do with my time than talk about the lives of these people, but I get into it, I don’t have a guy, and that’s all I’ve got to say on that matter.

I have really been impressed with the guys. I know I’ve said that, but they all seem so sincere. So good.

As for Emily getting upset with the guys this last week because no one told her what Kalen had said about her daughter, I’d have to disagree with how she handled it.

What I saw was all those guys being very concerned, angry, and protective of Emily and Ricki. I didn’t see what Emily saw…no one having her back. And I also didn’t get how she felt so disrespected, how she said no one told her, when Doug was the one who, as soon as he heard about it, sat her down and was honest with her. Wow, way to go, Doug. He really showed his greatness there. I don’t think any of them deserved the anger that Emily showed toward them. It’s not like they all let her shuffle along, and even pick Kalen in the end, and THEN tell her.

Anyway, if I were a bit younger, and really skinny (I can and do plan to fix the skinny part; can’t do much about the age part), I’d say “hey ya’ll” to any of those guys, because they are the best group I’ve seen on there. And don’t even get me started on how I drooled over them wearing Romeo…and even the Nurse…costumes. Wow. It just seems like there’s a group of guys that have integrity, honesty, compassion, and good looks.

And I’m sorry that Alejandro was kicked off because he was a sweetheart. Maybe he should be the next Bachelor???

That’s all for now.
