Everyone's Talking About It

If you're a Bachelor or Bachelorette fan I'm sure you know all that has been going on in the last couple of weeks with the lovely ladies and with Juan Pablo.  Before I get into my thoughts about that I want to make it clear that I loved this season from the start.  I thought the women on this show were fun, had great personalities, and I'm pretty sure I said once or twice to my boyfriend that I would/would love to be one of their friends in real life.

My favorite ladies:

    • Sharleen: I loved her from the beginning because of her ethnic mix, cultural diversity, and style.  As a woman born & raised in Hawai'i when you see someone who exemplifies that diversity it gives you a bit of warm and fuzzyness inside.  Being ethnically mixed myself I knew she was of Chinese and another ethnicity which apparently is a mixture of European and Aboriginal descent I found, which is so different from seasons past so far.  In the beginning I thought she would be great for Juan Pablo because they each bring different cultures to the table. Canadian woman who lives in Germany to a Venezuelan who lives in the U.S. But the lack of a 'cerebral' connection was clear and I get that sometimes you want to have those intellectual and articulate conversations where you're on the same page with that guy. I give all my respect to her for giving such honest and real 'confessions' throughout the Bachelor.  She seemed the most intuitive of her feelings and did what was best for her, which in reality is just what someone would do in real life.  If you just aren't feeling that connection, you let go and do what's best for you to find that person that encompasses what you are seeking in a partner, husband or wife. I especially loved her quote: "I want him to see a panda in a room full of brown bears," and she clearly was.

    • Renee:  Such a beautiful woman who was obviously loved by every girl in the house.  It was never a surprise that the girls, when they needed someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on, Renee was there comforting them.  You could tell from the start how big of a heart she has for her son and others.  During the hometown dates it was such a sweet moment to see her hug her son after such a long time.  It was easy to tell what kind of a mom she is to Ben and what a great catch she would be for any man.  I truly wish her the best because she deserves someone just as amazing as she is.

    • Andi:  I loved Andi from the start as well.  I thought she exuded strength, dignity, and a fun loving personality throughout the season.  For a woman to have the career that she does I thought it was wonderful and refreshing to see someone on the show that was beautiful and conservative at the same time.  In a society where scantily clad women are the norm, it was nice to see someone rock dresses and swimsuits that still allowed for a little mystery.  I certainly understand her stance about how her overnight went as well.  It's easy to be unsure of what you want in a relationship when you're in your twenties, but I think she has a clear idea and I know she will find someone who is all in with her as she is in with him.  I also love that they aired the confrontation because it shows how communication can be misinterpreted easily between men and women.  Communication is such an important aspect in a relationship, I've learned that the most beneficial thing you can do is to communicate what you're saying in a way that is understandable towards the other person.  If it means saying it 2,3,4, or 5 different ways for them to understand, do it.

    • Clare:  Clare has such a kind and open heart it almost makes me worry for her because I don't want her to get hurt.  Throughout the season it almost felt as though she might have been infatuated with Juan Pablo, but it's pretty clear that they have a connection so we'll see what happens next week.  I loved seeing her family and could totally relate to her relationships with her sisters and her mom.  Her mom was so cute and I got this sense of her strength and why her husband fell in love with her.  Whomever Clare marries, that man will be very lucky.

    • Nikki :  I think I started liking Nikki as a person when she went on her one on one date with Juan Pablo, rappelling in a cave.  It's certainly not an easy thing to do and it showed her willingness to try new things and trust in Juan Pablo.  I loved seeing her friendships with the other girls on the show too it shows that even though she and Clare didn't get along she still made great friends during the season.  I think it's pretty important and of course great to have girl friends and seeing those friendships grow from the show is such an amazing thing to see.  I also just adored her hometown date with Juan Pablo and meeting her family.  Seeing her in her own element was great, I think it allowed him to get a bigger picture of how she came to be.  Her parents were so wonderful, when her dad talked to Juan Pablo I started tearing, that's a great set of parents she has, she is blessed!

All the girls on this season were just wonderful.  I loved Kelly and her cute doggie Molly, Chelsie was also a favorite of mine, I loved her positive personality and how full of life she is. I also loved Cassandra and despite how young she is she has such an elegance and sophistication about her.

Each woman brought something unique to the table this season and it's easy to see why Juan Pablo would cry after letting some of these ladies go.  The season still has another week or two to go and next week is the Women Tell All which I'm anxious to see.  I began following some these ladies on twitter & Instagram and just love how close they've become and how much fun they have.  It's definitely great to see all these women still maintaining their friendships after the show concludes.

Lastly, I wanted to thank the Bachelor ladies for going on the show and letting America get to know each of you a little throughout the show and allowed us to get a glimpse of  who you are.  To put a hold on your life and take a chance at love says a lot about all of you and I wish you all the best and know that whomever you find as your partner in life, will be one lucky man!  *cheers*
