One of my few “guilty pleasure” television shows is watching ABC’s “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette“. I’ve been watching each season for a few years and as much as I think it’s one of the word’s cheesiest shows, I can’t stop watching.
I don’t think there’s anything natural or normal about “falling in love” this way — dating 16+ people at once and being filmed nearly all the time. I think there’s too much pressure, to much living in a bubble and really, in what real world do normal dates take you halfway across the world doing unusual (and hello, expensive) things? I think that’s why there isn’t the best track-record for those proposals actually making it to a marriage ceremony.
Even with the likeliness not being too high for everlasting love, there are some lessons on love and dating that I’ve learned while watching the two shows. Click through to read 14 love lessons from watching “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette“:
