Em's date with Arie.
So much of the awkward.
Em: "I just...well...you know, I really like when people are totally open and honest."
Arie: "Well, what else do you like?"
Em: "You know, when people don't lie and there are no secrets."
Arie: "Okay, yeah, that's a good idea. Anything else that's important?"
Em: "Loyalty. Honesty. No secrets."
How about YOU start with being open and honest?
It could go something like this:
"I know something you don't know I know.
I know about you and what's-her-name. Wish you woulda said something."
That's it. Problem solved.
Lordy, I hate games.
It seemed like things were worked out well by the end though.
And I think that circumstances like this bring a couple closer together.
Emily went through the swing of emotions from wounded to pissed to enamored with him again and that will absolutely strengthen her ties to him.
Like a real, live relationship.
Things are looking good for old Arie.
I loved the Lennon wall and all of the history Emily treated John to on this date.
I wanna go on that date with Emily!
Pick me! We'd have so much fun.
But I was kind of dying when they were painting on the wall...
"Don't paint over history!"
Here's a funny thing:
John has had two dinner dates.
One was in a cave and one was in a dungeon.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say: TMI on the girlfriend cheating story.
I really don't think she needs/wants that depth of info on your sad, failed relationship.
Not at this point in the game.
Note to moody booty Chris:
Hey, ManBaby, you signed up for the Bachelorette.
This girl is supposed to go on dates with other dudes.
I don't like him. There. I said it.
I want to know how many times Sean really shouted "Emily!" in the dark streets of Prague and how many times they dubbed it over.
But, the little girl princess-wannabe inside of me was glowing at the thought of him running through the streets looking for her.
And I blushed when they kissed.
And Mr. B. saw me blush.
So...that was fun.
Oh, oh, oh.
That kiss. Way too little, waaaay too late.
He was a good one...just, not on Emily's speed.
Maybe in the real world, buddy, but not in Bachelorette world.
Really though? It's hard to blame the guy.
There are cameras in your face...how are you supposed to make out in those conditions?
I will not make fun of Jef. I will not make fun of Jef. I will not make fun of Jef.
I adored the Jef date.
How did that guy know how to work marionettes?! He had marionette Michael Jackson moon walking!
Mind officially blown.
|This is a family blog, but this was the only picture I could find of those two!|
The library was unbelievable.
And I thought it was romantic when Mr. B. took me to Barnes & Noble.
The Bachelorette: making men step up their game since 2002.
But seriously, these two mesh.
They're adorable together.
The cream, sparkly, lacy lil shorts she was wearing on the Arie date?
And completely right with the menswear shirt and blazer.
I love something my BFF sister-in-law said in the comments on my last Bachelorette blog:
She said she loves that she's not feeling like yelling at the TV with every rose Emily is giving out.
Emily is so unannoying in her choices.
So spot on.
I just feel comfy watching her...not freaked out like past seasons.
