Reality TV. I don’t get it, I don’t watch it and I can’t fathom why it’s so insanely popular. The other day, I got sucked into watching the bachelor o.O
Yeah I know right?
Distasteful. Also? Somewhat sad. Pitting 12 women against each other in a so called quest for true love and marriage is like tossing some random body part into a pool of vultures. Women are catty, competitive and let’s not forget basic rules of human nature: You always seem to want what you can’t have.
What floored me is that one woman who got busted for being in love with someone else and came on the show to ‘get over the guy that she’s in love with because he doesn’t want to get married and she does’.
So basically she’s putting herself out there on a
totally trashy wildly popular show because she’s desperate to have the wedding of her dreams a husband. WTF is wrong with you?!? Same goes for the rest of them. What’s the appeal? I vaguely recall watching a talk show of sorts eons ago when what’s her name was on the bacholorette and they had two of the rejects on for an interview and they said that they didn’t get to spend all that much time with her. So please enlighten me as to how you can fall in love with someone in such a short period of time, let alone someone you have to share with a dozen other people? Than there’s the tears. Good lord, these woman are always seemingly drinking their faces off or crying. Sometimes both simultaneously. Are you really that desperate to be in love with someone? I’m more inclined to think that they’re more in love with the idea of being in love with someone, anyone. Perhaps they should check out Tanya Davis’s video How To Be Alone. Get some personal enlightenment.
Also Dave, Bob, Jim or whatever the hell that guys name is? Crazy! I’m sure that they’re getting paid a butt load of money to be on this show, and to his credit he seems mostly straight up (from the little bit that I watched) which is a good thing. I’m not a huge fan of dating overall. I’m not particularly good at it and the more I like someone, seems the more awkward I seem to get. Also shy. Yeah I know, hard to believe but it’s true.
Doesn’t help that I have become insanely picky as of late. Most of the guys I’ve spoken with, I can’t be bothered to meet. Because they’re total douche-bags who seemingly have a knack for spewing forth drivel that they think I want to hear. I’ve only been on a few(4) dates in the past 13 months and only one. Yes ONE guy I’ve actually gone out with twice. I can’t fathom having to date several men at a time trying to figure out which one I want to marry. Let alone embarrass myself on national television. The one thing that is the most challenging about dating? Subtext. Good lord. I need a manual, or something.
Just my .65 cents.
