Love is a funny thing, isn't it? I mean, it's really impossible for me to see what Jillian sees in Ed over Reid. I get that Reid didn't "say" he loved her quick enough, but didn't their connection seem so obvious? Reid just seems like the "real deal" and my heart broke for him last night. I didn't believe he'd really gone back to Hawaii to propose on his own accord. I thought maybe he was paid for his appearance to add drama to the show.
But then, last night, in his teary eyes, you saw that wasn't true. He was so sincere, and he didn't understand what the words meant to her. He'd been cautious and protective. What I love about this allegory for life, (and men, this is our football aftershow. We don't get why you have to hear about the game you just watched either.) Anyway, this allegory for life: Get out there! You really have to take your chances, don't you? Because you never know, and it's better to give love away than hide it away and hope.
If you want something, playing it cool may leave you with regrets. Sometimes, you gotta be the dork!
There's someone better out there for Reid, but wow, doesn't it hurt to watch someone get their heart broken? And wasn't it interesting, the comparison of Reid #3 next to the number two, Kiptyn? Honestly, not sure why but Kiptyn doesn't register on my Richter scale -- I feel like you can't get past the surface with him. I want to know who he really is and I still don't feel like I have any clue. As a writer, this bugs me. I watched Reid's confession to Chris Harrison three times because there was so much to mine there.
Anyway, a great show. Jillian is a lucky girl to have so many great men to choose from. Let's hope they find their loves now too. I nominate Reid for the next Bachelor.
Oh and a question. Colleen Coble and I were discussing this. Do you think the fantasy suite means they sleep together? Am I just naive because I didn't think that. Are people that easy these days? I like being ignorant, but at the same time, I'm curious on your opinion.
