I've said it before, and I will proudly say it again - I LOVE to watch both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. A show about gorgeous people going on amazing dates and falling in love (and of course the drama)...what's not to love?! This season in particular had me quite enthralled. I've been thinking about venturing back into the dating world, and well, I can't help but reflect on all of my past heartbreaks.
Upon late nights chatting with girlfriends over glasses of wine or texting with my best friend, I find myself saying things like, "I'm just going to pretend I'm The Bachelorette and date and a bunch of guys." I've never really been the type to date around, and maybe that is part of the problem. There is something to be said for the premise of dating multiple suitors at one time. I find myself telling my best friends other things like, "I'm tired of falling for one man at a time and waiting for that man to actually make a move or worse, wishing he loved me back." I want to be the one taking my pick rather than waiting on one man to pick me. So for once in my life, I'm contemplating pretending to be The Bachelorette instead of just one of many girls on The Bachelor. I know the show is ridiculous, but bare with me while I contemplate the lessons to be learned.
